  • Lyrics
  • At the beginning of this song's video, Doro says in German: "Only humanity has real power." The song is about long-standing conflict rooted in history, and how we must break the cycle of hate. The video, directed by Vinny Giordano, makes this point with images of riots and strife, interspersed with messages like "Violence is the last resort of the ignorant." The clip got a lot of airplay on MTV's metal show, Headbanger's Ball.
  • Doro wrote this song with Jack Ponti, who also played guitar on the track. In our interview with Doro, she said: "We wanted to write a metal anthem that sounds more modern. I think it has a great hook, a great chorus."
