Ύμνος

Εν όψη της 25ης Μαρτίου προχθές, είπα κι εγώ να κάνω κάτι πατριοτικό.
Το τραγούδι "Anthem" ακούγεται στο musical "Chess" των Tim Rice (στίχοι) και Björn Ulvaeus και Benny Andersson (μουσική). Εδώ ακούμε τον υπέροχο Michael Ball να το τραγουδά live. Ακολουθούν και οι στίχοι.
Απολαύσετέ το!

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,
and 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 ask me would 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 men's petty nations
tear themselves apart

My land's only borders
lie around my heart
