It's against my uniform to be a civil judge
All the songs are history now
Of rock stars and their grudge
Let us cast our minds back
To thirty years or more
You talk of all the vandals
Well Hitler beat`em all
And we're sad and sorry
We're sorry that it happened that way
Yes we're so, so sorry
But why'd you have to treat us that way?

Compare ourselves with others
And cover them in sin
Oh, God what a terrible
A terrible state we're in
There must be some way out of here
A comprimise that's right
If we cannot work it out
We're gonna have to fight
And we're sad and sorry
We're sorry that it happened that way
Yes we're sad and sorry
We cannot go on in those days

I'm talking about my brothers, yeah
I'm talking `bout sisters as well
And I wish you good luck

Gotta believe it...
Better believe it...
Oh, but the world's still on fire
Chain the hope you take on, liar
This fire
We're on fire, we're on fire, yeah...
