Beautiful Nation

I close my eyes,

And drink in it's beauty,

It's a beauty so dark it's light,


It sinks into my mind,

It'll stay there forever,

And forever it will stay bright,



It is a great lesson,

One i'll never forget,

For if I forget i'll never fight,



I won't fight for what I believe in,

Nor shall I fight for what's just,

And what's unjust will keep me in fright,


It is but a memory,

But not one of mine,

That makes me feel safe at night,



This is the memory,

Of the birth of our nation,

One whose colors are blue, red and white.
