While Europe speak of peace all other battles cease
There's a man who aims for more than he can reach
(Blood)
All over
(Prague)
On fire
(Burn)
All of Bohemia set ablaze
Stand on their own

The road to the city's been blocked
Denied
To enter the gates
Though they tried
When Prague was called to arms
They fought them on the bridge
Their freedom was at stake

Stand and fight the city is burning
Königsmarck lost stopped him at Karluv Most
Stained by blood their brothers die side by side
Did what they could
Died where they stood

Their city's been besieged all hell on Prague unleashed
As the cannons crush the walls the city shakes
(Fear)
Is spreading
(Hate)
Increasing
(Death)
And pain is all that Sweden brought
Rise and strike back

The walls of the city's been breached
Reclaimed
On that very night
Unsustained
They did it on their own
They fought them on the bridge
Their freedom was at stake

Stand and fight the city is burning
Königsmarck lost stopped him at Karluv Most
Stained by blood their brothers die side by side
Did what they could
Died where they stood

Unconquered city on Vltava's shore
Start of the conflict and end of the war [X2]
Unconquered city on Vltava's shore
Is protected by its people
And thirty years ago the war begun
It's returned to where it started

The road to the city's been blocked
Denied
To enter the gates
Though they tried
When Prauge was called to arms
They fought them on the bridge
Their freedom was at stake

Stand and fight the city is burning
Königsmarck lost stopped him at Karluv Most
Stained by blood their brothers die side by side
Did what they could
Died where they stood [X2]
