I have not strength enough…
…enough blood… …blood…

Who are you to question me?
…whether you have shed enough…
…enough blood… …blood…

I have not the strength to lift my eyes from the bleeding earth to watch my world crumble away...

Oh, my motherland is captive to your wicked ways.

Rain pours upon the soil and pulls the blood into the streams as it grows and floods.

…wash this war away...
…send them back to from where they came.

Push and pull these primal beings until they conform to our ways.

Hold until their eyes show desire to defy...
…then fire.

Hold until their lies fold beneath our guise and their facade fades with our cries.

Although your power is edacious, your reign will be deciduous.

You'll take what we give to you – An offer you cannot refuse…
I have not strength enough... I have not strength...

You will shed more – Watch this blood pour…
Who are you to question me? ...whether you have shed enough blood?

…wash these tears away...
…send them back to from where they came.

Brave and bold, we'll stand our ground and drown them in the blood from her veins.

We'll hold until our eyes burn with fire…
…with fire, death will rise.

We're bold, and our hearts are stronger.

And we'll fight…
We’ll fight whether we live or die.
