EVERY TIME I STEP ON YOUR OPEN FIELDS
I WANT TO FIND OUT THE TRUTH
MOTHER KOZARA, FOR HOW LONG WILL YOUR
BRAVE SONS PERISH
THE SORROW, AS BIRD LANDS ON MY CHEST
A MOUNTAIN PROUDLY SHOWS ITSELF
AN HONEST TEAR ALWAYS GOES
DOWN MY CHEEK
OUT OF ALL LIVES IN THIS WORLD
THE LIFE OF A HERO IS THE LONGEST
AND SO MANY HAVE BEEN GIVEN BY
MY KOZARSKA 5TH
WITHOUT A GENERATION
OF INNOCENT STUDENTS
RECRUITS AND WEDDING GUESTS, YOU WERE LEFT
HERE, FOR MANY YEARS
CHILDREN WEREN’T BORN
EMPTY ARE MANY OLD FIREPLACES
FROM THEM YOU CANNOT SEE FIRE NOR SMOKE
NOBODY OPENS A GATE AROUND HERE
HOW CAN I BE AT PEACE WITH THAT
OUT OF ALL LIVES IN THIS WORLD
THE LIFE OF A HERO IS THE LONGEST
AND SO MANY HAVE BEEN GIVEN BY
MY KOZARSKA 5TH
THE CURSED ENEMY IS AGAIN THE SAME
STILL DOESN’T LEAVE US AT PEACE
AND AFTER MANY YEARS
HISTORY IS REPEATING ITSELF
I CAME HERE TO GIVE YOU AN OATH
TO PRAY FOR MY PEOPLE
SO NO FORCE IN THIS WORLD
WILL EVER BREAK YOU
OUT OF ALL LIVES IN THIS WORLD
THE LIFE OF A HERO IS THE LONGEST
AND SO MANY HAVE BEEN GIVEN BY
MY KOZARSKA 5TH
