lyrics

Couplet 1:
We all have heard about your promises for a better future
Leading some of us to fight against their own brothers
The nightmare we're living has to belong to the past
As the plague among us is spreading so fast

Refrain:
When bombs will stop modelling the landscape
And we won't have to fear what will be coming next
When prophets’ voices will be worth nothing
But torn pages thrown in the wind
We will stand up again, confident in ourselves
And try to get rid of our demons once again

Pont:
Hot and still smoking ruins as foundations
For your deaf, blind and magnificent nation
No doubt your future will soon be a part of my past
Because it seems that it is not designed to last

The tallest sandcastles you try to build
Using ash made of cement and concrete
And all these kind of crappy materials
Leading your brand new nation to another fall

Refrain:
When bombs will stop modelling the landscape
And we won't have to fear what will be coming next
When your bunkers' wall begins to crumble
Burying your ideals along with your guns
We will stand up again !
