"Modern Crusaders" as written by Michael Cretu and Carl Orff....
Don't look back
The time has come
All the pain turns into love

We're not submissive, we're not aggressive
But they think we can't defend

Stand up, join us, modern crusaders alive
We have the power to face the future
Cause we are the fighters
Just fighting for our rights

They're accusing, like always without knowing
What is just fiction or what is the truth
They have no mission, they have no passion
But they dare to tell us what's bad and what's good!

Stand up, join us, modern crusaders alive
We have the power who'll face the future
Cause we are the fighters
Just fighting for our fights

Est affectus
Et defectus
Semper in angaria.
(drive on
And weighted down,
Always enslaved.)

Quod per sortem
Sternit fortem,
Mecum omnes plangite!
(since Fate
Strikes down the strong man,
Everyone weep with me!)

Nunc obdurat
Et tunc curat
Ludo mentis aciem,
Egestatem,
Potestatem
(first oppresses
And then soothes
As fancy takes it;
Poverty,
Power)

Stand up, join us, modern crusaders alive
We have the power who'll face the future
Cause we are the fighters
Just fighting for our fights

Stand up, join us, modern crusaders alive!

    General Commentmost self explanitory song I have ever heard, but this has got to be my ALL TIME favorite song of mine. I normally don't like New age, but every song on enigma's greatest hits is just.. awesome, and this song takes the cake

    General Commentthe latin part translated should be this:

    drive on
    and weighted down,
    always enslaved.

    since Fate
    strikes down the strong man,
    everyone weep with me!

    first oppresses
    and then soothes
    as fancy takes it;
    poverty,
    power
