lyrics

When will you decide which is the right side?
Will you stay human or become a monster running wild
If you’re not protected against the epidemic of hate
I’m afraid, my friend, you should hide before it’s too late
Young heroes dressed in black gathering near your home
Reason’s caught the last train, the lights will soon be gone
The mold on the history book’s infecting your proud chest
Somebody forgot to close the gate of the dark past
Come on, start the car, let’s find the world of colorful people to be their guests.

Let’s go to the Dob utca or to the Temple Bar in Dublin
In Passau there’s a coctail-bar where Julio is waiting
The Swedish guys in Galway already began the session
A Norwegian yankee plays Hungarian Folk with passion
I’ve been watching my children playing with the others
They never asked the question why their skins have different colors
I’ve been living among people, never afraid of the color
Black, white, yellow, brown, each of them is my brother
Spare me your lousy argument, it’s time to cast it away forever

[Chorus:]
For two-hundred-thousand years
We live here together but the hate won’t cease
Now ignorance bears its sword again
The scientific battle has long been lost for them
No matter the pain
The enemy’s a reflection in your brain

When will you decide which is the good side?
Will you stay with humanity, or go marching with false pride
Your only real enemy is the one that’s in your head
If you go the way of destruction, you too, will soon be dead
You’ll be a bloody puppet in the hands of those men
Who haven’t any interest in being more humane
And that you learn to live with people, never afraid of the colour,
Recognizing yourself in any black stranger
Come on now, it’s time to shut the gate of dark past forever

[Chorus]
For two-hundred-thousand years
We live here together but the hate won’t cease
Now ignorance bears its sword again
The scientific battle has long been lost for them
No matter the pain
Isn’t it quite plain?
The enemy’s a reflection in your brain

Can’t you see, my friend? The enemy’s a reflection in your brain
