lyrics

Violent resistance, damaging their property
Never submissive, no respect for authority
In the middle of the night, black flags high
We crossed barbed wire and met on the other side
The horror we saw inside, only our compassion guided us
Prisoners no more we said, and smashed in their cages
And if they come after us, this is what I’ll say
Over my dead body, I’d rather die today
But first I’ll tell you I love you and say farewell to my friends
When I fell dead on the floor, I fell on my demands
This was the night, The night I met my fate
But I stood my head up high, Executed by the state
For every warrior down, A million born in its place
For every warrior down, A million born in its place
For every warrior down, A million born in its place
For every warrior down, A million born in its place
