How long have you been free
In this world of hate and greed?
Is it black? Or is it white?
Let's find another compromise.

And our future standing still.
We're dancing in the spotlights.
Where's the leader who leads me?
I'm still waiting.

Leaving home...

And god is on your side,
Dividing sparrows from the nightingales.
Watching all the time,
Dividing water from the burning fire...

(Two persons: Dominus, six times)

Inside.

Leave a light on in the night for me, that I can find you.
Remember when we both where young, and reckless, and so curious.

Now you're hiding from your child. A new day's dawning.
Remember that you felt alive, sometimes.

And god is on your side,
Dividing cruelty from tenderness.
Watching all the time,
Dividing fiction from reality.
(Other person says: Aha)...

(Two persons: Dominus, nine times)

Move in circles walk on lines, no human being in sight.
Calm the winds and calm the seas.
Try another kind of peace.
Who fights this holy civil war?
A million men in uniform!
Wo ist der fьhrer der mich fьhrt?
Ich warte immer noch!

(Other person says: Leaving home)...

And god is on your side,
Dividing soldiers from the fisherman
Watching all the time.
Dividing warships from the ferryboats.

(Other person says: Ferryboats).
