The argument of force
couldn't be prevented and you knew,

There's blood in your hands now,
and families cry on your chest.

Waterfalls of children,
husbands and wives,

was it so difficult
to rise a bit up
your voice?

And condemn
Spanish wrong excuse
to do what they've always
wanted to do,
to do.

But if you don't show up,
if you don't use power
against the unfair,
what do you expect us to think
about EU?

You're surrounded by
stock market addicts

and something as trivial as

You might be a good (I don't know)
You might like Messi scoring
thousands of goals,

But if you don't show up,
if you don't bring light
against the darkness,
what do you expect us to think
about EU?

I've lived in your Belgium fields,
I've lived in your Lithuanian squares,
I've slept with Estonian girls,
and Polish too,
I've studied in France,
and I did trek in Italy,
I had a band in Dublin
and I saw Springsteen,
I have family in Austria
and I'm in love with Minsk,

But if you don't show up,
If you don't fight
for what you believe in,
what do you expect us to think
about EU?

Our story is long,
and we've been betrayed
many times before,
but we are still here
fighting for EU.

We really do,
We fight for what we wanted to.
