Nation Over Nation Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Nation by nation
Like measles on the map
Sprouting in all directions
From Mother Russia's lap

The dream of independence
Seeking identity
As the old orders crumble
But you must learn to see

Greatness! Raise the flag
Show your kids how proud it flies
This, my son, is God's own country
For its honor you must die

We are the chosen ones
This blood and soil is sacred
We stand above the rest

Nation over nation, myth of supremacy
People over people, chauvinist bigotry
Nation over nation, calls for hate, envy and war
Chaos and damnation, nation over nation

Power is the key
That's behind the rhetoric
Patriotic anesthetic
Blinded crowds fall for the trick

Parades and uniform
Masking internal crisis
Affirming foreign threats

Nation over nation, myth of supremacy
People over people, chauvinist bigotry
Nation over nation, calls for hate, envy and war
Chaos and damnation, nation over nation

Ethnic manipulation
The curse of racial pride
Abuse by power mongers
Committing genocide

Nation, is a scheme giving power to elites
Ideology concealing exploitation and deceit

We are the chosen ones
This blood and soil is sacred
We stand above the rest

Nation over nation, myth of supremacy
People over people, chauvinist bigotry
Nation over nation, calls for hate, envy and war
Chaos and damnation, nation over nation

Songwriters
GEREMIA, ANDREAS / KATZMANN, AXEL
