Wolfsheim – The Sparrows And The Nightingales


Artist: Wolfsheim
Album: No Happy View
Year: 1992

Lyrics:
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’s standing still
We’re dancing in the spotlight
Where is 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 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

Move in circles walk on lines
No human being in sight
Calm the winds
And calm the seas

Lets try another kind of peace
Who fights this Holy civil war?
A million men in uniform

Wo ist der führer* der mich führt?
Ich warte immer noch

And God is on your side
Dividing presence from the history
Watching all the time
Dividing deaf men from the listening ones

And God is on your side
Dividing soldiers from the fisherman
Watching all the time
Dividing warships from the ferryboats
