DE FIL I COTÓ / ANGELIC UPSTAIRS. SOLIDARITY


Mai no m'ha agradat massa el punk, però aquesta cançó dels Angelic Upstaires em sembla magnífica. Per no semblar-m'ho! Durant la meua joventut la vaig sentir insistentment allà on anava. És l'única peça coneguda del grup, però crec que paga la pena. Almenys per a nostàlgics com jo.



As the Polish workers fight to make their stand
And behind them every honest working man
In unity there’s each other and your friend becomes your brother
And in the tyrant’s heart will be a lesson learned

Give them hope, give them strength, give them life
Like a candle burning in the black of night
We are with you in our hearts and in our minds
And we’ll pray for our nation through it’s darkest times

I know that your hearts are made of the firmer kind
And a riot stick won’t kill your peace of mind
You can fight with all the spirit that you possess
Because your fight is a struggle at it’s best

Give them hope, give them strength, give them life
Like a candle burning in the black of night
We are with you in our hearts and in our minds
And we’ll pray for our nation through it’s darkest times

The tyrant has no smile on his face
He knows that in his mind he’s a disgrace
The religion of union will take his breath away
Our turn will come and we will have our say

Give them hope, give them strength, give them life
Like a candle burning in the black of night
We are with you in our hearts and in our minds
And we’ll pray for our nation through it’s darkest times

As the Polish workers fight to make their stand
And behind them every honest working man
Join hands with your brother and then you can help each other
Watch the tyrants burn in the fire that they have built

Give them hope, give them strength, give them life
Like a candle burning in the black of night
We are with you in our hearts and in our minds
And we’ll pray for our nation through it’s darkest times

Give them hope, give them strength, give them life
Like a candle burning in the black of night
We are with you in our hearts and in our minds
And we’ll pray for our nation through it’s darkest times

Sona a himne. Supose que deu ser la menys "punk" de les seues cançons. És bastant tranquil·leta.
