Over My Dead Body
Over My Dead Body After the Nazis we were baited by the Russian bear our "liberators" wanted Poland for a thoroughfare I was a victim of December 1981 I took a final beating from the blunt end of a Russian gun You plant your missiles while our people wait in line for bread you hang an army tank above us by a bloody thread you bought our government they crawl like bleating sheep to you we know from history that human life is cheap to you chorus: Over my dead body redemption draweth nigh over my dead body I hear a battle cry try and blow out the fire--you're fanning the flames we're gonna rise up from the ashes 'til we're ashes again You make a mockery of all that we hold sacred here you drive us underground in hopes that we will disappear we seek our sanctuary where the altar candle burns our dignity's a legacy the cross of Jesus reaffirms (chorus) After the Nazis we were baited by the Russian bear our "liberators" wanted Poland for a thoroughfare rise up my brothers don't despair the Iron Curtain's rod someday we'll draw the string assisted by the hand of God I was a victim of December 1981 I took a final beating from the blunt end of a Russian gun you made a memory--the memory will multiply you may kill the body but the spirit--it will never die
