Lyrics of the song Justice is My Weapon:
"Despite my wounds I’ll rise up
I won’t surrender; I won’t accept [the situation].
I won’t barter over you, my country
Justice is my weapon and I’ll rise up
Despite my wounds I’ll rise up
I won’t surrender; I won’t accept [the situation]
I won’t barter over you, my country
My home is here, my land is here, the sea, the plains, the river – they are ours
How will I be calm in the face of fire, and I’ll rise up
Justice is my weapon and I’ll rise up
Despite my wounds I’ll rise up
I won’t surrender, I won’t accept [the situation]
I won’t barter over you, my country
Your enemy was defeated, my homeland; the universe cannot [defeat] you"
