2525 lyrics – laibach

in the year 2525
if man is still alive
if woman can survive, they may find

in the year 1994
war goes on just like before
war goes on, it never ends
war brings bigger dividends

in the year 1995
brave new world is born to die
from total damage to damage limitation
fear is the key to defend the nation

in the year 1996
there is no need for politics
seeing life with unseeing eyes
seeing man see through the disguise

in the year 1997
the boil bursts in the face of heaven
dragon tears washed away thy youth
wash thy hands of eternal truth

in the year 1998
why shut the door of the open gate
rivers of people flow like blood
new race rises from the mud

in the year 1999
war destroys the last sky-line
a flaming cross appears in the sky
man bows down as the bullets fly

now it’s been 2000 years
man has cried a million tears
for what he never knew
now man’s reign is through
but through eternal night
the twinkling of starlight
so very far away
maybe it’s only yesterday

in the year 2525
if man is still alive
if woman can survive
we survive

in the year 3535
