The quote near the end of the song is comprised of excerpts from the now famous speech by Frederik Willem de Klerk, former state president of the Republic of South Africa, made on February 2,...
There are places in our world
There are things that we don't know no one can tell us
Common sense your only friend
Am I right to question all those answers I can't find?

Just a ripple in the pond
A way of telling you what they wanna say
Telling you what they wanna say
More and more each day
Most of your suspicions start to fade away

Again and again!
There was no beginning and there will be no end
Together you stand
Together you will fall in your promised land
Again and again!
May the sun always shine on your dreams all the days of your life
It's not what you spend
But what you do with the knowledge you can't comprehend
Again and again!

Nothing tastes as good as rain
You are the one devour all our wisdom
We have come a long long way
You are consumed by all the things you hide in vain

Still it ripples through the pond
And still there's nothing left to remind you
Nothing left to remind you
The kiss of Judas again
More and more each day
Slowly all of your ambitions
Fade away

Again and again!
There was no beginning and there will be no end
Together you stand
Together you will fall in your promised land
Again and again!
May the sun always shine on your dreams all the days of your life
It's not what you spend
But what you do with the knowledge you can't comprehend
Again and again!

F.W. de Klerk: "It is my intention to terminate the state of emergency completely as soon as circumstances justify it and I request the co-operation of everybody towards this end. [...] It is time for us to break out of the cycle of violence and to break through to peace and reconciliation. The silent majority is yearning for it. The youth deserve it. [...] The table is laid for sensible leaders to begin talking about a new dispensation. [...] A new, democratic constitution: Universal franchise, no domination, equality before an independent judiciary, the protection of minorities, and freedom of religion [...] are being abolished in their entirety."

The kiss of Judas again
More and more each day
Slowly all of your ambitions
Fade away

Again and again!
There was no beginning and there will be no end
Together you stand
Together you will fall in your promised land
Again and again!
May the sun always shine on your dreams all the days of your life
It's not what you spend
But what you do with the knowledge you can't comprehend
Again and again!
