Sins Inherited

Why is there hate between us when we've never met before?
Is it 'cause my ancient fathers fought against yours in an ancient war?
You know my father and you think you're knowing me
And so you draw your gun by thinking you are right to make me flee

But I don't want to be the man that you want me to be
I don't want to see alls things in the same way as you see and I
Don't want to be hanged up for things I've never done
I don't want to fight the wars other people started once and I
Don't want to be clapped in my face for things I've never said
I don't want to carry the scars from wounds I've never had
But I think I have to, have to do...

It's all the same since thousand years ago, you tell me we've grown so strong
But strong has grown the hate inside that we can't keep it in
We have lost this fight and always will
So look into your neighbour's eyes
If you look hard enough you'll see what I mean
See the flames burning, burning, always burning

But I don't want to be the man that you want me to be
I don't want to see alls things in the same way as you see and I
Don't want to be hanged up for things I've never done
I don't want to fight the wars other people started once and I
Don't want to be clapped in my face for things I've never said
I don't want to carry the scars from wounds I've never had
