Official music video ‘The Sparrows And The Nightingales’ by German Synthpop band ‘Wolfsheim’ taken from the album ‘No Happy View’ (1992).
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
