She who knew all the arts has today sen up. In the house where there was a lion, there is now a scorpion, and if the tail of the scorpion and if the tail of the scorpion is cut off, there is life for us. There is no fear if brave people unite, even if the skies fall, We shall sing the song of victory even if we die on streams of blood.)
