Ich habe einen Traum
Um die Art zu ändern, wie wir denken
Um die Richtung zu ändern, gehen wir
Um die Welt zu einem besseren Ort zu machen
Ich bin ein Berliner
Was tun wir?
Ich habe einen Traum

Wir lernen nie aus unseren Fehlern.
Wir bezahlen nur für unsere Fehler.

Was ist die Zukunft?
die Zukunft?
Was ist die Zukunft?
Ich verstehe nicht
Wo ist Liebe?
Wir wollen in Frieden leben
Sag Nein zum Krieg

Say no to war

About the Song

I am very proud of this song. It is certainly an unusal song for me; firstly because it uses a techno-beat and secondly, the German was recorded using Google Translate. I was trying to learn the pronunciation and realised that I really liked the 'female voice'. It created an effect similar to a train station platform announcement and took me back to fond memories spent in Berlin.
