A Song


We shall close our eyes,
O people! O people!
We shall open our eyes,
O warriors! O warriors!

Lift us up above the sea,
O angels! O angels!
Drown the enemy under the sea,
O demons! O demons!

We have closed our eyes,
O people! O people!
We have opened our eyes,
O warriors! O warriors!

Give us strength to fly over the sea,
O birds! O birds!
Give us courage to die under the sea,
O fish! O fish!
