1. The Road

[french speech]

Empty days and endless roads 
One team away from what you call home 
One dream away from what you call love 
Can you call this a life when we called it all off? 
You can put your money but we've put our faith 
We will be gone soon, the word will stay 
You think you found strength in the numbers 
Well, I see nothing but fear and violence 
Open your eyes, step up and listen 
This path has no end as long as we're breathing 
They call us apostate and you are the reason 
We've omitted the "y" and made this our city 
To all unbelievers - we stand in the name 
Of your every wrong turn
Of your every mistake 
And not that it matters but we went against every odd 
Your mind can possibly think of 

This world is ours

2. The People

We've burnt the brightest of our minds 
For the sake of being equal 
In a flock of moaning sheep 
And now we're waiting for the leader 

When we've let the nails of fear 
Drive into our heads so deep 
That it almost felt like love 
At least we made ourselves believe 

But I still can't get
No I still don't know 
Why after all these years 
We still need someone to suffer 
For our mistakes
In the name of our future 
Like they haven't paid enough
In the past for us in present 

And three words of the truth 
Still cost us thousands of lives 
And if this is your home 


Is there something but lies 
You have left for your children? 
Can you take the blame 
Can you take the blame for those 
Who remain unforgiven? 

You were scared that we would remember 
All of your crimes proclaimed as the feats 
You can bury every bone
Scatter words to letters 
Burn every broken home
But you can't steal the promise 
Made by the mother in front of metal doors 
Her greatest fear after the biggest loss 

HOW CAN WE DARE to forget?

HISTORY IS MADE by the cries of the lost generation 
HISTORY IS MADE by the ink that colored the sheets with frustration 
HISTORY IS MADE by the years of courage and hopes of the children 
HISTORY IS MADE by the ones who refused to let it be written

3. The Speech

"In this world there is room for everyone 
and the earth is rich and can provide for everyone 
The way of life can be free and beautiful 
But we have lost the way 
Greed has poisoned men's souls 
Has barricaded the world with hate 
Has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed
We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in 
Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want
Our knowledge has made us cynical 
Our cleverness hard and unkind
We think too much and feel too little 
More than machinery we need humanity
More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness 
Without these qualities life will be violent and all will be lost
The airplane and the radio have brought us closer together
The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men
Cries out for universal brotherhood for the unity of us all
Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world
Millions of despairing men, women and little children
Victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people
To those who can hear me I say "Do not despair"
The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed
The bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress
The hate of men will pass and dictators die 
And the power they took from the people will return to the people 
And so long as men die [now] liberty will never perish…
Soldiers, don't give yourselves to brutes
Men who despise you and enslave you, who regiment your lives
Tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel
Who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder
Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men
With machine minds and machine hearts
You are not machines
You are not cattle
You are men
You have the love of humanity in your hearts
You don't hate, only the unloved hate
Only the unloved and the unnatural
Soldiers, don't fight for slavery, fight for liberty
In the seventeenth chapter of Saint Luke it is written 
The kingdom of God is within man 
Not one man, nor a group of men, but in all men, in you
You the people have the power"
[from Charlie Chaplin's Great Dictator's Final Speech]

4. The Rupture

I'll write another cheap verse 
To crown the pile on the floor 
It might mean anything tonight 
And no one needs to find out 
I'll write another cheap verse 
This is my last one 
I promise, I swear 
I am sorry for letting you down 
See, I'm just a man, who tries too hard to stand on his feet 
Not falling on the knees 
That I forgot there is something above them 

And something always kept me from sharing my dreams 
As if I dared to shape them with words 
They would crumble away and leave me with fear 
That I have been always running from 
When all of your deeds 
Were re-assembled in sweat by me
I can't find a way 
To blame someone else 

To walk alone is to walk with honor 
Because you won't be walking for long [x3]

Same old frail ode 
To the past 
We are not raising glasses this time [x2]

I guess we all have a favorite role 
And what scares me the most 
Is that I found my own 
In the pursuit of a reason for death 
But if you don't have one, what's your life really worth? 

The heart above the head 
The thing that counts the most 
When there's nothing left to gein 
You walk away 
The heart above the head 
The thing that counts the most 
When there's nothing left to gein 
Be honest

5. The Town

I'm crawling in circles 
And endless rounds 
Hopeless days 
And such hopefull nights 
Another face of the same old town 
Grown alone 
I am growing tired
