Game of Bands - Round 97: National Anthem for a Fictional Country Music: /u/asiansoundtech Lyrics: /u/poetofsaffronpark Vocals: /u/scottpontiac Hopeland Anthem When we were destitute and poor, and rich men kept us down, We made a land beyond their reach, with n'ary a land around. When men of law would sell us all to keep their steak and veal, We made a land where all are one, and none would starve or steal. When all men were oppressors and no man would take the blame, We made utopia on Earth, and Hopeland is her name. Oh Hopeland! From your humble shores and through each tree and field, Be thou our safe space in this world. Be thou our ward and shield. Oh Hopeland! Through every tree and field, Oh Hopeland! Be thou our ward and shield. We left the rules of men behind when we set out to sea. Our founders made us simpler rules exalted are the three. We do not notice sex or race. We recognize no creed. No one of us may hurt the rest. The world is paid no heed. There is no good we do not share. They give us all the same. They made utopia on Earth, and Hopeland is her name. Oh Hopeland! From your humble shores and through each tree and field, Keep us within and world without, til all the world is healed. Oh Hopeland! Through every tree and field. Oh Hopeland! Til all the world is healed. When times were dark, and we were lost, of all our hope bereft. Some told us that the land we made was worse than what we left. A strong and mighty woman rose to drive them from the shore; Hope stamped out all their evil lies and made them lie no more. We had no chief to guide our way, so leader she became. Hope forced utopia on Earth, now Hopeland is her name. Oh Hopeland! From your humble shores and through each tree and field, Observe our every word and thought. Let nothing be concealed. Oh Hopeland! Through every tree and field, Oh Hopeland! Let nothing be concealed.
