Has it been forty years
still a hostage
new kind of fascist
there in West Germany

a people, a battlefield
East and West
the lines are drawn
how are you to live

the fear of death is so close
crimes are in our heads
are we ignorant and blind
afraid to swallow our pride

    General CommentThe groove on this song is so fucking crazy.

    Minutemen were just awesome.

    I know that's not a meaning, but still, wow.
