The eagle flies north.

Quick! Watch as its brethren follow suit.

The hawks of steel, deadly birds of prey,

All without mercy.

 

The eagle flies north.

Towards the flashes of light,

To vie for the freedom not its own,

Yet if it falls,

Crashes to the ground in one of those flashes,

It still shall fight.

Proudly it shall rise in the heart and soul of those it once,

Guarded in full, so once more til peace shall abound,

Shall it not be contented on the ground?

It shall rise and fight,

despite the truth that it should lie in dust and dirt.

Never let death bring you down,

For living life as life is lived,

Never strived to win the crown
