A generation raised in darkness
controlled, polluted - fed with the truth,
a truth, that blinds their view
Their ways and fates decied - omplanted sorrows kill their needs
A common way to happiness; but i never learned to sell myself

Poets became silent,
while clownsarose and burned the books again
No thinkers daring vision grew,
where thieves ran free and crippled human dignity
In the noise of unimportance and stupidity, the sceptic's whispers went unheard

Be sure, this storm will not drown my voice!
Be sure, my hands will sow the seeds of reason
I'll never be a minor, I'll never be a happy slave

May This cold sever my face
And may the pain weaken my fists
No inner strife will touch me
The only truth is in my heart

    General CommentThink this song is about not letting people tell you what to believe in and control you. How your mind can never really be free if you let religion think for you.

    How religion feeds you what they call the truth even with no evidence at all.

    How his voice may have gone unheard before but now he is standing up for what he believes is the truth.

    Proud Atheist :)

    Song MeaningPeople are overthink this; it's about growing up in East Germany (Soviet Socialist State). The entire band is from Saafeld Germany, just east of the border with West Germany. Ironically, some of the indoctrination stuck; several of them are avowed Marxists.
