Official music video ‘The Sparrows And The Nightingales’ by German Synthpop band ‘Wolfsheim’ taken from the album ‘No Happy View’ (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 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
Let’s 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
Leaving home

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 fishermen
Watching all the time
Dividing warships from the ferryboats
