Mickey 3D - La Rose blanche (English translation)

English translation

The White Rose

I know the day will come when the wind will rise
And we will be thousands of people.
The night will strangle you
And on your corpses laying down
Roses will grow.
 
You will remember me when your last breath will come
You will remember the day you sentenced me to be beheaded
You will maybe remember, but the world will soon have forgotten you
Because they will remember us if history has not erased us
 
I am not here anymore to testify
But the white roses have grown.
The fools never win
And Heaven filmed everything.
 
Today I am the one who falls
I join the Army of Shadows1
But tomorrow I will come back
I will dance upon our graves.
Just after the rain
The grass will grow again.
 
You will remember me when your last breath will come
You will remember the day you sentenced me to be beheaded
You will maybe remember, but the world will soon have forgotten you
Because they will remember us if history has not erased us
 
I am not here anymore to testify
But the white roses have grown.
The fools never win
And Heaven filmed everything.
I am not here anymore to testify
But the white roses have grown.
The fools never win
And Heaven filmed everything.

Author's comments:

The White Rose (German: die Weiße Rose) was a German resistance group led by some students and a professor at the University of Munich. The group conducted an anonymous leaflet and graffiti campaign which called for active opposition against the Nazi regime. They, as well as other members and supporters of the group who carried on distributing the pamphlets, faced show trials by the Nazi People's Court, and many were sentenced to death or imprisonment.
