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
