We walk out of our homes each day without much thought about our well-being (at least in the West). We get into our cars and expect that we will reach our destination safely. We cross the street without much thought about what could happen if […]

Berlin – Jorge Robleto

Berlin – Jorge Robleto

So much history, walking on these sidewalks
blood staring at me, thinking of all the shock—-
how could they be so heartless, to oppress
an entire people, now i’m kind of depress’
I saw remnants of a gas chamber, somber
a furnace to burn the bodies, embers—-
the place, where they shot them, point blank
their bodies disposed, goodbye Frank

A city divided, and families torn
A wall was erected, Two nations were born
The east and the west, the good and the bad
America, Russia, Two powers collide
and when I look around, I get so sad
At all the divisions, I just wanna hide
nothing has changed, we repeat the past
destruction is coming, and it’s coming fast

Our hearts are corrupted by envy and greed
Money, we bleed, we need to be freed
The walls need to come down, the youth must arise
Let’s open our eyes, and see through the lies
Poor vs. Rich, Black vs. White
that just ain’t right, and that’s why I fight
To break through the walls, that separate me
from those who are different, who don’t think like me

Berlin I see you, a city reborn
Where Muslims and Christians walk side by side
It’s no longer the place, of hatred, division
you’ve got a new vision, you’ve made a decision
to start up again, and build a new city
to learn from the past, I see a contrast
Now we move along, the future is now
Break through the walls, let me show you how

Let’s break through the walls
