We can make you understand.
We can make you understand.

Play with me,
You can make the love and I'll make the money,
Stay with me,
Shut out the world, live underneath the city.

Release cold gender bombs,
On colonial closet, middle England.

Stay with me.
I'll be Peter Pan and you just be pretty.

To the brave and the petrified,
We all fall down.
To the slave and the civilized,
We all fall down.
To the lovers we left behind.
The bad days, the good nights.
In the great shipwreck of life,
We all fall down.

Born we are, between the hard black rock
And the code of the immortal,
Torn from cars from the flames of the brave,
And the bosom we can't return to.

We light up the bars of the world
With the decadent essence of innocence, oh!
Free, but sharp,
We could be the satellite guiding through the dark, oh!

To the brave and the petrified,
We all fall down.
To the slave and the civilized,
We all fall down.
To the lovers we left behind.
The bad days, the good nights.
In the great shipwreck of life,
We all fall down.

Manifesto, black fire.
We can make you understand.
Of liberty and bright light,
We could make you understand.
We could make you understand.
We could make you understand.

To the brave and the petrified,
We all fall down.
To the slave and the civilized,
We all fall down.
To the lovers we left behind.
The bad days, the good nights.
In the great shipwreck of life,
We all fall down.

We can make you understand.
We can make you understand...
