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.
