Just when you think the fight is gone
Someone will risk his life to raise her
There she stands

There she flies, clear blue skies
Remind us with red of those that died
Washed us white by the brave
In their dreams, she stands

When evils calls itself a martyr
When all your hopes come crashing down
Someone will pull her from the rubble
There she stands

We’ve seen her flying torn and tattered
We’ve seen her stand the test of time
And through it all the fools have fallen
There she stands

By the dawn’s early light
And through the fight, she stands
