Chess – Anthem lyrics

No man, no madness
Though their sad power may prevail
Can possess, conquer, my country's heart
They rise to fail
She is eternal
Long before nations' lines were drawn
When no flags flew, when no armies stood
My land was born

And you ask me why I love her
Through wars, death and despair
She is the constant, we who don't care
And you wonder will I leave her - but how?
I cross over borders but I'm still there now

How can I leave her?
Where would I start?
Let man's petty nations tear themselves apart
My land's only borders lie around my heart

    This is about a young man leaving Russia, reminding us of all the "sad" people in power, who will not prevail, with all the bad things that they have allowed to happen, under their watch. Instead, he talks of the wonderful Russia that he loves, and that is part of him. He can never leave who he is, not his soul, not what is in his heart. He stands for love of humanity, and in particler, all the good things about Russia - family, friends, music, art, architecture,nature, etc.

    Stand, remove your cover, put your hand on your heart. Now you're ready to pay your respects to all that have served our country. Countless have paid the ultimate price, countless come to start their new life as Wounded Warrior. Others come home & put their U.S Boots once again on American soil. But they are prepared to answer another call for American Boots. Not one is forgotten. All have "more" than earned our respect. Our son did 2 tours to Afghanistan as a Expert Field Combat Medic. His discharge time had come. The Army made him an offer that he would been crazy to say no to. He called me from Fort Polk, La. We talked about the offer if he re up for 6 more years. I 1st thanked him for the respect he gave me. I said to him, I have just 2 questions. 1) Do you trust the Army, w/o a pause, he said yes. 2nd question, you have been to war twice, seeing what you did, You enlisted, knowing very well what your getting into. Would you do it all over again? His answer was "In A Heart Beat" Way to clutch up Doc.. He then told me & his mom his plans were to make the Army his career & when his time is done. He told me that he plans on opening Wounded Warrior only rehab center in S.C. Our country has always got us into a mess but that's they call the USA "Big Brother" 1st in, last out. "Army Strong in this house."
