(Tim Rice/Benny Andersson/Bjoern Ulvacus)
from the musical, Chess

No man, no madness,
Though their sad power may prevail,
Can possess, conquer, my country's heart
They rise to fail

She is eternal
Long before nations' lines were drawn
When no flags flew, and no armies stood
My land was born

And you ask me why I love her
Through wars, death and despair
She is the constant
We who don't care
And you ask me would I leave her -- but how?
I cross over borders but I'm still there now

How can I leave her?
Where would I start?
Let men's petty nations tear themselves apart
My land's only borders lie around my heart
