"White Arrogance" as written by and Peter Joseph Andrew Hammill Herbert Arthur Grönemeyer....
There's a shiver in the air
It's all too clear
It's a lament for all the world
No-one wants to hear
Behind unshakable faith in God
In isolation
Safe behind the barricades
They call it homeland

White arrogance
The only yardstick
White arrogance
All men are equal
But the whites are somehow better

And in the camps they cry with rage
The white yoke cuts deep
And we just watch in on TV
What can we do?
We see the truncheons, the black blood
The silent cries
They live their lives down in the mud
We, too, are to blame

White arrogance
The only yardstick
White arrogance
All men are equal
But the whites are somehow better

Too cowardly to do a thing
Too cowardly to boycott
Too cowardly to do a thing
Too cowardly to boycott
Holding men in contempt
Shipping men like cattle
Holding men in contempt
Shipping men like cattle

With brown eyes and black hair
It's difficult life
Here as much as there
There are different shades of white
We see the slogans on the walls
Cash changing hands
Be good to all your fellow men
Who gives a damn?

White arrogance
The only yardstick
White arrogance
All men are equal
But the whites are somehow better
