How long have you been free
In this world of hate and greed
Is it black or is it white
Let's find another compromise

And our futures standing still
We're dancing in the spotlight
Where is the leader who leads me
I'm still waiting

Leaving home
And God is on your side
Dividing sparrows from the nightingales
Watching all the time
Dividing water from the burning fire, inside


Move in circles, walk on lines, no human being in sight
Calm the winds and calm the seas
Lets try another kind of peace
Who fights this holy civil war
A million men in uniform
Wo ist der führer der mich führt (where is the leader who leads me)
Ich warte immer noch (i am still waiting)

Leaving home
And God is on your side
Dividing cruelty from tenderness
Watching all the time
Dividing fiction from reality

God is on your side

And God is on your side
Dividing presence from our history
Watching all the time
Dividing deaf men from the listening ones

And God is on your side
Dividing soldiers from the fisherman
Watching all the time
Dividing warships from the ferryboats

God is on your side
