about

This song is very easily summarized by: “No matter how you were born.
No matter who you were born. Everybody deserves a place in the sun.”
It is ridiculous to discriminate people by race, gender, sexuality or how/who they were born. We’re all here for the same reasons; to love and to enjoy life and make the best of our limited time here. It’s as simple as that!

lyrics

Looking through your prison bars
Left in indecision
‘Cause you love who you love
A crime according to modern inquisition

In the night when your cell’s closed
You dream about when all borders dissolve
A land free from the old lords’ influence and the smell of poisonous gold

Born as a woman you must stay here
Your hands are bonded with moral chains
So sad they made you believe
Your fate’s the life as a household slave

In the night when your cells’ closed
You dream about when all borders’ dissolve
A land free from the old lords’ influence and the smell of poisonous gold

Well, keep dreaming and keep loving
Hoping one day we’ll be free
‘cause some things are not decisions
Some things are not decisions

Break the walls in our laws
‘Cause everybody deserves a place in the sun
No matter how you were born
No matter who you were born
Everybody deserves a place in the sun
(Keep dreaming –Keep Loving-
Hoping one day we’ll be free
Keep dreaming –Keep Loving-
Hoping one day we’ll be free)
