The Hours Pass By

Oh people, oh people
Small peculiar creations
Following our own minds and needs
Always out for more
Everyone's the architect for his own future
But is also a part of this weird humanity
Complacent humanity
Perverted misery
Cruel greed, and it goes on
Oh people, oh people
So happy and so clever
What went wrong with our beliefs and laws?

The hours pass by and the blood flows for a word
Year after year, the human requires more and more earth
The hours pass by and the world is just as big
I wonder if we'll be able to share it in 100 years

I don't believe that the world is evil
But our way of thinking is no longer healthy
I see a thousand lives being lost per minute
Somebody should say that they should calm down
Before we know it, it's already been decided
Who should die
And how it should all end
I wonder what will happen here in a thousand years
Will the world come to a complete stop?
What about we started all over again?
We could find a new planet
And forget everything that's happened
Before it is too late...

The hours pass by and the blood flows for a word
Year after year, the human requires more and more earth
The hours pass by and the world is just as big
I wonder if we'll be able to share it in 100 years

In a world full of love
Being egoistic can be a quality
To agree can lead to difficulties
And sometimes offend one's dignity
There are so many things that we cannot understand
And so many things that we can achieve
Working together, we can accomplish more
So come on, everybody, get up!

Okay, so there was a god
Or was it Allah?
No, no, it was Adam and Eve
No, Mohammad
Was it Jesus? No, it was Juzuf
No, it was Joseph
No, no, no, there was a time with Ash Yggdrasil
An enormous tree, Mímisbrunnr, the well of Urdam
No, no, no, it was all about a giant egg
And inside the egg was Pango
And when the egg hatched, out came ying and yang
No, no, no, it was Vishnu and Brahma
Yes, it was Vishnu and Brahma -- and something about a lotus or something like that
No, it was Parosa
Argh, no, no, there was something about a god with two sexes called Ometeodel or something like that
I don't know what he was called
What does Buddha say?
Hmm... Darwin?

Why don't we just agree that we have no idea about what happened?
Yo, but we have to share this beautiful planet!

No matter if we believe in some prophet
Or if we just believe in the stuff we can see
We build houses that touch the skies
And we travel freely as the bird flies
We mingle and settle down in foreign cities
We wrinkle our noses at strange haircuts
Religion was a good thing when we were just animals
Now we are religious animals without control
How much blood will have flown, once the dawn breaks?

The hours pass by and the blood flows for a word
Year after year, the human requires more and more earth
The hours pass by and the world is just as big
I wonder if we'll be able to share it in 100 years
