If we seek solace in the prisons of the distant past
Emotions are the sail and blind faith is the mast

His words of fear will find a place in your heart
Without freedom from the past things can only get worse
Sooner or later just like the world first day
Sooner or later just like the world first day
Sooner or later we learn to throw the past away
History will teach us nothing

The sordid and the powerful, the architects of time
The constant fear of scarcity, aggression as its child
Sooner or later
Sooner or later

Is to win a bloodless battle where victory is long
In reason over might
History will teach us nothing
Sooner or later we learn to throw the past away
Sooner or later we learn to throw the past away

History will teach us nothing
Know your human rights
Know your human rights
Know your human rights
Know your human rights
