I'm a soldier, znachit ya
(I'm a soldier, meaning that I'm)

I otvyetchik i sud'ya
(Both the defendent and the judge)

Ya stoyu na dvukh kontsakh ognya
(I'm standing on both sides of the fire)

Ogibaya virazhi, obgonyaya smyert' i zhizn'
(Leaning into the curves, outrunning life and death)

Ya byegu srazit'sya s tyen'yu lzhi
(I'm running to fight with the shadow of a lie)

skol'ko b nityey nye plyol obman
(No matter how many threads deception would weave)

pokazhyet lik svyeta istina
(truth will shine through like the light)


Save your tears
for the day
when the pain is far behind
on your feet
come with me
we are soldiers stand or die

Save your fears
take your place
save them for the judgement day
fast and free
follow me
time to make the sacrifice
we rise or fall


I'm a soldier, born to stand
in this waking hell I am
witnessing more than I can compute

pray myself we don't forget
lies, betrayed and the oppressed
please give me the strength to be the truth

people facing the fire together
if we don't, we'll lose all we have found


Save your tears
for the day
when the pain is far behind
on your feet
come with me
we are soldiers stand or die

Save your fears
take your place
save them for the judgement day
fast and free
follow me
time to make the sacrifice
we rise or fall


Za myechtoyu nakray propasti
(After a dream to the edge of a chasm)

Lish' tol'ko tak mozhno mir spasti
(Only that way can the world be saved)

Ty nye plach',
(Don't you cry,)

Slyozy spryach',
(Hide the tears,)

Ved' nastanyet novyy den'
(Because a new day will start)

Tvoy ogon'
(Your fire)

Sogryevat'
(Will warm)

Budyet tysyachi syerdets
(Thousands of hearts)

A syeychas podnimis'
(But now get up)

Spryach' podal'shye bol' i strakh
(Hide the pain and fear far)

Pobyedit tot, kto prav
(The one who's right will win)

Znay, chto vsyo v tvoikh rukakh
(Know that everything is in your hands)


Save your tears
for the day
when the pain is far behind
on your feet
come with me
we are soldiers stand or die

Save your fears
take your place
save them for the judgement day
fast and free
follow me
time to make the sacrifice
we rise or fall

    My OpinionThe lyrics to this song are surprisingly deep to be a cartoon series' theme song. But, then again- the cartoon is a pretty deep cartoon series.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about the need to stand and fight together for the truth even when lies and oppression surround you make you feel like all you can do is cry.

    In the end, if you're right, you'll prevail, and you can finally let your tears flow.
