A voice in my head screams in fright:
“Please don’t let the world end tonight!
Don’t let our demons see the light
of a red judgement day!”
But no, the world won’t end tonight,
yer still my faith may take its life
if a kind nation, once in sight,
now slowly fades away.
Oh please, don’t let it be that day
where hatred wins and bloodshed stays
upon the notes the anthem plays,
the words no longer true.
And they might let it end that day,
but you can love and you can pray.
In any language, any way,
our future’s up to you.
