Maybe you'll see me on the evening news
Maybe you'll see me with a bag over my head
If that's the case then I've met my doom
If that's the case then my comrades are dead

And I don't hate my enemy
I hate the cloud he's brought over my land
There's no virtue in killing a man
Neither is there virtue in being afraid to stand

But I saw the black coats forming lines
They hit our beaches running
We're on our knees but not to pray

You're the only reason I stay in this coward's melee
I'd rather die than live without mercy and love
Sing while the city decays, we'd rather go up in flames
Lest we betray the names of dignity and love

You can't change the course of fates sealed long ago
But hope is not lost, code name Corbeau
We trade their secrets at cost for our lives
The panzer is strong, the raven is wise

I turn my ears to the BBC
I can hear them, they can't hear me
I long to forget all the horrors I've seen
I'll live like a ghost, I'll die with the free

Traitors and turncoats turned aside
Traitors' loose lips sink
They're on their knees but just to beg

You're the only reason I stay in this coward's melee
I'd rather die than live without mercy and love
Sing while the city decays, we'd rather go up in flames
Lest we betray the names of dignity and love

Inside the fuselage, valiant young soldiers singing songs
Fear not my downcast brothers we are the strong arm of the law
By land and air and sea on wings of destiny we ride

Sing while the city decays, sing while we go up in flames

You're the only reason I stay in this coward's melee
I'd rather die than live without mercy and love
Sing while the city decays, we'd rather go up in flames
Lest we betray the names of dignity and love

I'm on your side until my body drains of blood
Lest we betray the names of dignity and love
I'm on your side until my body drains of blood
