Methinks, America, your soul cracks down.
Wasn’t it you who saved the human race
from slavery when Hitler’s force has grown?
Why do you now step back, and lose your face?
It seems to me that wisdom is a sin
wherever one can buy a gun at will,
wherever liberty is based on skin.
Your freedom sounds to me like “free to kill”.
You represented everything that’s good
in years gone by, but now you look mislaid.
You masters of mankind and brotherhood
now it’s your turn to cry for lack of faith.
The world is watching you with careful eyes
there’s no more space for bullshit and for lies.
