Look at the state we're in
How has it come to this?
I wish the snow would fall
And purify this poisoned ground
I know there's a new way to go
If we just refused to fuel the flames
Insanity gets contagious when the
Lack of objectivity becomes a norm
Just where will you live (just where will you live)
Just where will you live?
Just where will you live when you're done with this world?
I respect the fact
That we all have different values
But how can you value destruction?
Cuz that's on the flipside of your coin
I know there's a new way on
If we just stopped shooting ourselves on our own foot
Black! Black! You lock me in the cellar and feed me pins!
Black! Black! You lock me in the cellar
And feed me fucking pins!
But we're too beautiful to lose
If I love you dangerously
And you will love me endlessly... right?
All different but all equal
All pursue the same goal
Competing on ways to bring the red dawn
Need to fight the bad blood in men
And I know there will be a new way to go
When we just refuse to fuel the flames
The world is paralyzed
We're trapped inside of a net
Of dead air and lies
And supposed greater goals
As guns and ammunition
Shed blood in all the corners of the world
And what justifies it all
Has a new name each time
No order / New order
Create a concept to be afraid of
To be applied without questioning
Turning mass hysteria
Into a mass hypnosis
Take terrorism - it's not the biggest threat to the world
It's the hook they feed us on a line
On which we're also the sinker
It's just the politics of naming
Can you see this aura of endless threat? *
These same footsteps
Are turning into a path
Steht im Mittelpunkt deiner Politik
immer die Sorge um die Welt? **
* "An aura of endless threat"
- Jim McDermott
** "Im Mittelpunkt der Politik steht immer
die Sorge um die Welt"
- Hannah Arendt; Was ist Politik?
