Hymn To Life - text

Sitting here and wondering
Watching the seasons going by
Each new answer just brings ten new questions
My eyes have finally opened
Armored human wrecks walking the streets
Longing for a leader to take away their pain
We have not learned anything

Let me live another day
Without sorrow, without shame
Let me feel the wind on my face
Let me feel the sun
And live my days with fun
Let me sing this hymn to life

Molesting and incest
Unloving parents feeding the oven of madness
Known as planet earth
Love turns into prostitution
Embracing into violence
Lovemaking into fucking
Greed kills our humanity
Morality our natural needs
Jealousy kills the friendship

I'm sorry but I don't want to be an Emperor
That's not my business
I don't want to rule or conquer anyone
I should like to help everyone if possible
Jew, gentile, black man, white.
We all want to help one another
Human beings are like that.

We want to live by each other's happiness
Not by each other's misery.
We don't want to hate and despise one another.
In this world there is room for everyone
And the good 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 aeroplane 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, liberty will never perish...

Soldiers - don't give yourselves to brutes
Men who despise you, 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
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
The power to create machines
The power to create happiness!
You the people have the power to make this life free
And beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure!

Then in the name of democracy
Let us use that power
Let us all unite!
Let us fight for a new world
A decent world that will give men a chance to work
That will give you the future and old age and security.
By the promise of these things
Brutes have risen to power, but they lie!
They do not fulfil their promise, they never will!
Dictators free themselves
But they enslave the people!

Now let us fight to fulfil that promise!
Let us fight to free the world
To do away with national barriers
To do away with greed, with hate and intolerance!
Let us fight for a world of reason
A world where science and progress
Will lead to all men's happiness.

Soldiers - in the name of democracy
Let us all unite!
