What Are You Fighting For?

It's all about future It's all about past About the days of glory And the broken heart And we're asking questions No pretenders No more I predict revelation I told you so Alright Alright The chains are broken Can you believe? The Chains are broken And we take our breath And we give our smiles And we think about the future Like it's the very first time You forgave me my sins We can share our dreams Even wind changed direction Our boat'll never sink And we can go higher And the band is The Clash And the girl is Junie Carter And the boy is Johnny Cash

You've got a hard work that not everyone can stand. Your wife is a teacher and she stands it just the same. Together you build future for yourself and for your kids. So many people died in Iraq! As many as in Vietnam and Afghanistan! I don't believe you wish something like this to be In this game there are no winners it's The World War III. It's Armagideon time, what're you fighting for? Silly politician starts the war! It's armagideon time! It's armagideon time! You and me we wish to be good parents We try to protect our future and our house And it's terrible to see how someone sucks the blood of our kids. We are slaves to the system that sucks blood of the earth. The planet is in trouble, there's no more time left. Maybe something gonna change when we stop looking through it. Something gonna change. It's Armagideon time, what're you fighting for? Silly politician starts the war! It's armagideon time! It's armagideon time! It's armagideon time in the corner of the earth! Money and oil bring the death! It's armagideon time! It's armagideon time! It's Armagideon time, what're you fighting for? It's Armagideon time, what're you fighting for? It's Armagideon time, what're you fighting for?

Just another story, About a sixteen years old boy. What have you done? Why was it so wrong? We”ve grown on the same streets, we’ve gone to the same school. How could this story ever happen to you? Exciting days, exciting life, Cool music, girls and football fans. He found friends to belong to the crowd. He looked to his left. He looked to his right. Hey, Moscow! Do you have time? Take a look on all those shattered lives. Hey, Moscow! Do you have time? They want to be free. Russian Tragedy. From this moment the death wheel has started the ride. Luzhniki, Manezhka, black, yellow & white. Everywhere he has been in the first row. Everywhere he has been in the first row. Headlines of the news, on radar of police And everyone has just doubled his sins. He found friends to belong to the crowd. He looked to his left. He looked to his right. Hey, Moscow! Do you have time? Take a look on all those shattered lives. Hey, Moscow! Do you have time? Another night. Russian Tragedy. He and his friends they were going from a pub. Saw a man, his skin color was black. One of them started a fight, One of them took a knife, One of them ran away And the man bit the dust. One of them said: "Boy, take the knife it's your fault! You are sixteen years old, nothing will be wrong." Now the boy is in jail for the next twenty years His lonely mother has drowned in tears.

Riot Radio 02:31
Have you seen the tears of the liar Who stands in front of fireworks? Red Walls protect him from living corpses. And there I've seen the winner used the dirty tricks. The lie is cold, as a prison for two little girls. We dance, We sing to the song on the radio. We scream, We think about the song on the radio. The riot radio. Voice of millions asked for changes Loud, strong, but all they've got is pain, Insanity. The blood on fists, a lot of shame. So many things are going wrong, So many bad things last too long. And everyone has gone his way, But one thing always'll be the same.

The Light 03:08
I have seen you in the morning You went home I went to work I have tried to give you smile You were close but I don't know Have you seen me? Did I get you? Have you seen me burned inside? I have tried to shine so bright I have tried to steel your heart That's the light that I can follow I won't have regrets of these times Even if I don't know the reason And the way is not so easy Left behind the burning bridges Even if I don't know the reason Some might say that million tons bomb Gonna drop down right on me I don't want to know the reason I don't want to do the list Of misfortunes which I should blame That's not bomb that crashes on me That's my fault and I Can take it All my blames I send to me That's the light that I can follow I won't have regrets of these times Even if I don't know the reason And the way is not so easy Left behind the burning bridges Even if I don't know the reason

I have got no answers For the questions of my hungry heart Always looking for something, For impressions that've never been in past I never doubt in feelings, In dreams that bring the light I see And it's my direction No matter how hard it will come for me Credit cards and the thousand bills Boring job and the working week Television is a fake entertainment Solidarity among them Brave New World doesn't want you worry You can buy yourself the thrills Someone's scared, but someone's happy I'm afraid it's not ok with me When I saw it for the first time I thought that no man in the whole world would be happy about it Oh, man! How terribly I was wrong Please tell me the answer This question's like splinter attackin my heart But there's no reason to blame them Better take time and look at yourself

Magic of the history really touched the heart It's so disappointing when one can't be the part Of those magic moments someone told about Magic of the history really touched the heart I wish to remember 1969 But I was born in my own time I wish to feel glory of the modern days History's repeating anyway Who will tell our children the stories of the past? About our smiles, about our cries About all our wisdom, that son must tell his son Magic of the history it's the story of your own

You think you choose The Clever way You shot the man in back Without chance to pray You watched him die Didn't see his eyes Because you were scared He knew about your lies You told everyone about self defence About proud fight between two kinds of man There were no words of truth But everyone believed How does it feel? How can you? He just wished to live the day When no one does like you Without tragedies of mothers And it's true He just believed There's no future for you luck He never tell anyone But you have shot him in the back Nothing lasts forever Bad things never come alone Loose your faith for the moment And you will never know where you were wrong What can you name "eternal"? Except the bullshit and the lies of men Who've been blinded with the glory And The power of the richest hands

If 03:13
If you are the engine of your country If you are defender of your home If you can appreciate the efforts of the honest man at work And you can be someone special, But always share your bread with friends And your heart's free from silly judgments And I will call you a proud man If you get down you will get up You'll raise your flag against the darkness And everything will be alright!

Looking back at all my life Asking questions about the things I've done I know I've built my life on dreams I know I've built my life on dreams Never afraid of future mistakes Working hard day by day Always ready to pay the cost For the things I love the most I know we've got so much to do I know we've got so much to say Always do all my best Like it's the very last day And it's under my skin And it's deep in my soul And I have no fear about the end of the world That could be the last day of the world Does anybody want to spend it alone? No matter how much you have on your side There always will be something to find. Better get that or better get this Or d'you want to fall in everlasting kiss? To get something new, more worthy than gold I hope that you will sing your favourite song!
