Bengal Tiger

[Part 1]
Black hoods, the floodlights are on
Stickers all over - Hooligan
We listen to Bob Marley, Kool & The Gang,
Turn on the boom box - Bababoom, Badabam
We gotta get out of here, it's eating us up, go where it's loud
The backstage bathed in blue light, I need you
Smoke stings our bright red eyes,
We're like dogs, we run over every hurdle
And they're all already getting up in line
When your head is empty, what's a helmet for? -They see
It getting brighter through the dust, this world is so loud
It goes 'Boom', and half of us/them go blind
All I see before me is a horde of zebras,
I can resist to teargas
Stones rain down, they're throwing water too
Every cop is controlled by a bastard
Now we're quoting Goethe, so put your fists up in the air
São Paulo, Paris - yes, now cars are burning once again
Living from the night and into the day,
It's not only our shadows that are black
 
[Chorus]
And I stand under the red light
Cove me, I've got pyro in my hands
And I stand under the red light
Cove me, I've got pyro in my hands
(If those up there fail,
The air in their lodges will become unbreathable)
Let's go down on the streets,
Let's take back our streets,
Let's get a tattoo of an animal that fits us - a Bengal Tiger
Let's go down on the streets,
Yes, we take back our streets,
Let's get a tattoo of an animal that fits us - a Bengal Tiger
 
[Part 2]
Either for fun or because they feel like it,
They sully our unpronounceable names
No job, frustration
Hushing up the truth doesn't turn you into artists
Your barricades are just air
Signal lights loading, wait (wait, wait) - Shoot
The street is sinking
We're the witnesses of Mandela, of Martin Luther King
Open the cages, let the white doves fly away
Evolution will be written with a 'R'
Tibet, Stuttgart, Istanbul, Cairo
Anger is flowing in your blood, it goes up your throat,
And your head is exploding
We're celebrating this party, 'cause a victim rules it
Now we're quoting Goethe, so put your fists up in the air
London, Berlin - now cars are burning once again
Living from the night and into the day,
It's not only our shadows that are black
 
[Chorus]
 
[Outro]
Bengal Tiger (x2)
