https://lyricstranslate.com/en/n%C3%A9-en-17-%C3%A0-leidenstadt-born-1917-leidenstadt.html If I 'd been born in 1917 in Leidenstadt On top of ruins, in a battlefield Would I have behaved better of worse than those people If I'd been German? Born into humiliation, hatred and ignorance Fed on dreams of revenge Would I have been one of those unlikely beings with a conscience Like some teardrops in the midst of a flood? If I'd grown up in the docklands of Belfast Soldier of a faith, of a class Would I have had the strength to withstand and fight against my Own kind: to betray, to hold out a hand in friendship? If I'd been born white and rich in Johannesburg Between the power and the fear Would I have heard the cries carried by the wind? Nothing will be like it was before. One never knows what one really has in one's guts, Hidden behind our appearances The soul of a brave man, an accomplice, an executioner? The worst or the best? Would we be one of those who resist or just those who follow like sheep If it was a question of more than just words? (Refrain) If I 'd been born in 1917 in Leidenstadt On top of ruins in a battlefield Would I have behaved better of worse than those If I'd been German?
