Anthem – Broadway 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 nation’s lines were drawn. When no flags flew, where no army 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 wonder will 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 man’s petty nations Let man’s petty nations tear themselves apart. My land’s only borders lie around… MY HEART!
