Coat Of Arms Album Cover



Warsaw, rise!

Do you remember when, when the Nazis forced their rule on Poland
1939 and the allies turned away
From the underground rose a hope of freedom as a whisper
City in despair, but they never lost their faith

Women, men and children fight, they were dying side by side
And the blood they shed upon the streets was a sacrifice willingly paid

Warsaw, city at war
Voices from underground, whispers of freedom
1944 help that never came
Calling Warsaw, city at war
Voices from underground, whispers of freedom
Rise up and hear the call, history calling to you
Warszawo, walcz!

Spirit, soul and heart in accordance with the old traditions
1944 still the allies turn away
Fighting street to street in a time of hope and desperation
Did it on their own and they never lost their faith

All the streetlights in the city broken many years ago
Break the curfew, hide in sewers, Warsaw, it’s time to rise now
