Parole e musica di Nina Hagen
Revolution Ballroom

Canzone ecumenica ma anche con qualche dubbio: Posso riporre la mia fiducia in Gesù (o in Babaji...) ma lui avrà fiducia in me?

Nina Hagen


Ma soprattutto un forte messaggio pacifista e di speranza:

We're all the same
Like stars in the night
Let's stop the war
Let's drop the fight
When the Lord was in the flesh
Showing us the truth
He sacrificed himself
To purify the roots

He said "Blessed be the one
Who knows my father's name
When the time has come"

I can put my trust in Jesus
But can he put his trust in me
Do I do my best in service
Even though no-one can see
I can say that he's my saviour
And from sin he set me free
I can put my trust in Jesus
But can he put his trust in me

Revolution ballroom
Bringing light into the dark
Revolution dancehall
Nothing more to say
Revolution ballroom
Like a rainbow shining in the sky
Revolution dancehall
Looking for a better day

The same story happened
On Kumaoni Hill
When Babaji appeared
Shaking our wills
He said "Be fearless and courageous
Cross ice and fire at the funeral pyre"

I can put my trust in Babaji
But can he put his trust in me
Do I help those who would need me
Do I really set them free
I can say that he's my guru
And from death he set me free
I can put my trust in Babaji
But can he put his trust in me

Revolution ballroom
Bringing light into the dark
Revolution dancehall
Nothing more to say
Revolution ballroom
Like a rainbow shining in the sky
Revolution dancehall
Looking for a better day

We're all the same
Like stars in the night
Let's stop the war
Let's drop the fight
Swim in oceans of love
Instead of blood and tears
'Cause the times are near

Glory Glory Halleluja, Om Namah Shivaya
Glory Glory Halleluja, Om Namah Shivaya
Glory Glory Halleluja, Om Namah Shivaya

Revolution ballroom
Bringing light into the dark
Revolution dancehall
Nothing more to say
Revolution ballroom
Like a rainbow shining in the sky
Revolution dancehall
Looking for a better day

Om Namah Shivaya...
