Maybe you'll see me on the eveneing news,
Maybe you'll see me with a bag over my head.
If that's the case then I've met my doom,
If that's the case then my comrades are dead.

And I don't hate my enemy,
I hate the cloud he's brought over my land.
There's no virtue in killing a man,
Neither is there virtue in being afraid to stand.

But I saw the blackcoats forming lines,
They hit our beaches running,
We're on our knees but not to pray.

You're the only reason I stay,
In this coward's melee.
I'd rather die than live without mercy and love.

Sing while the city decays,
"We'd rather go up in flames!"
Lest we betray the names of dignity and love.

You can't change the course of fate sealed long ago,
But hope is not lost,
"Code name corbeau!"
We trade the secrets at cost for our lives,
The Panzer is strong, the raven is wise.

I turn my ears to the BBC,
I can hear them, they can't hear me.
I long to forget all the horrors I've seen,
I'll live like a ghost,
I'll die with the free.

Traitors and turn coats turned aside,
Traitors' loose lips synch 'shhh, shhhh, shhhhh...'
They're on their knees but just to beg.

You're the only reason I stay,
In this coward's melee.
I'd rather die than live without mercy and love.

Sing while the city decays,
"We'd rather go up in flames!"
Lest we betray the names of dignity and love.

Inside the fuselage,
Valient young soldiers singing songs,
"Fear not my downcast brothers,
We are the strong arm of the law.
By land and air and sea,
On wings of destiny we ride."

SING WHILE THE CITY DECAYS!
SING WHILE WE GO UP IN FLAMES!

You're the only reason I stay,
In this coward's melee.
I'd rather die than live without mercy and love.

Sing while the city decays,
"We'd rather go up in flames!"
Lest we betray the names of dignity and love.

I'm on your side until my body drains of blood.

Lest we betray the names of dignity and love.

I'm on your side until my body drains of blood.
