So Raise the Scarlet Standard High

In every breath I carry
the memories of the heroes
who brought me to this place.
My heart, beating in defiance,
Speaks out with the names
of those who fought for me.

Every place I go I will
tell their stories,
With expelled air and with
one fist of steel and another
of iron,
I bring their love along.

And when I am gone,
Others will hoist my love up
like a blood-stained flag;
In death, as in life,
Our struggle is universal,
International,

and of the heart.
