This is your world.
These are your people.
You can live for yourself today,
or help build tomorrow for everyone.

    General CommentAgree with Driadon completely there. Anyway- here is the full lyrics for the song.

    This is your world
    These are your people
    You can live for yourself today
    or help build tomorrow for everyone.

    ~German~
    Es ist Deine Welt
    das sind Deine Mitmenschen
    Du kannst heute für Dich leben
    oder für alle die Zukunft von morgen aufbauen.

    ~French~
    C'est ton monde
    ces sont tes gens
    aujourd'hui tu pourrais penser qu'à toi
    ou aider à construire un lendemain pour tous

    General CommentAs for me.It's a song about choice that stand before each White Man now.(It's not occasional that it sounds in three main West European languages...sorry there is no Russian version:)))
    In German,"These are your people"translated as"das sind Deine Mitmenschen"-the MITmenschen word speaks:not all people(in politically fuckin correct meaning)but people of your KIN.
    "Your skin is your uniform"(David Lane)
    "You can live for yourself today
    or help build tomorrow for everyone"...
    Now,it's time before Ragnarok.Aeon of deep spiritual decadence of EUROPA.Have we any right to live just for self?I say NO.Wartime is time when those who avoid the army ranks are just traitors(it's undoubtedly!)

    General Commentwaldemar is an idiot. No thats not what it stands for.

    Its acually a very beautiful piece.
    Instead of being selfish, bitter and complaing about everything YOU can go out, get involved and help, aid and assist others and also help yourself for the future, for a better tomorrow.

    General Commentwell, well, well... For a short time (what does one year mean?) I disappeared... so now I felt an impulse to come and look what is changed... :lol: and I see damned obvious thing:
    you, tolerant and so fuckin PC, were ready to kill anyone who disagree - this fact I understood long before - nothing new...
    but you are, even more, so STUPID and NARROW-MINDED - you unable to write something new since I felt bored to stay here. It shows one obvious thing: your inner emptiness. Usual at all, f.ex. in AFA movement there's one idea: "against fascism". Without fascism as a bugaboo they'll simply turn into usual "walking stomach" simpson-zombies. As well as you are.
    Don't worry, I've read an interview and Ronan's letter. My opinion is still the same.
    Still, message of VNV NATION is worthy enough to inspire such people like me.
