"For The Nation" as written by Ida Jenshus and Skjalg Raaen....
You go for the gun
You're all for defence
They can't harm your pride
You won't run like a child
And you lost your innocence
The day you sent your men

Cause you've started a war that shouldn't be
Fighting an imaginary enemy
And you say you do this for the nation's sake
So is killing the best you can do
For the nation

Two arrows crashed into a hive
It woke the bees and made them come alive
And we're flying up here without any power to change
Or any influence

Maybe we started a war that shouldn't be
Fighting an imaginary enemy
And we say we do this for the nation's sake
So is killing the best you can do, for the nation

So maybe we should take a second look
We turn our backs
When we accept
Now where needed more than ever
In these battles of the world
Not with weapons
But with love

Maybe we started a war that shouldn't be
Fighting an imaginary enemy
Oh, and we say we do this for the nation's sake
So is killing the best you can do
So is killing the best you can do
So is killing the best you can do, for the nation
