Lyrics[]

[ARHYS & REBEL MILITIA:]
Brother, can you hear me?
Your life is in my hands
I will not surrender
Never yield to his demands

If we stand together
We will never fall
Brother, we're the answer to your call

Brother, can you hear me?
You must not be afraid
I will march beside you
Have no fear
Be strong, be brave

We sing the song of freedom
Our voices will resound
Brother, we will never let you down

[GABRIEL:]
On the road to revolution
We're bound to make mistakes
There's a price that we must pay
For every choice we make

Freedom is a reason
To stand up or give in
But someone has to lose
And someone has to win

Brother, can you hear me?
I am not afraid
I will not forsake you
I'll be strong and I'll be brave

I sing the song of freedom
My courage knows no bounds
Brother, now I stand on solid ground
Brother, I will never let you down

Never let you down!
