Track Name: One Man Army At The Front Feat. Charlie Chaplin & Wade Anderson
I’m sorry,
but I don’t want to be an emperor,
that’s not my business.
I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. (anyone)
I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. (anyone)

I should like to help everyone if possible.
Jew, Gentile,
Black man, white.
We all want to help one another,
human beings are like that.
We want to live by each other’s happiness
not by each other’s misery.
We don’t want to hate and despise one another.
In this world there is room for everyone and the good earth is rich
and can provide for everyone.
The way of life can be free and beautiful,
free and beautiful,
but we have lost the way.
Greed has poisoned men’s souls,
has barricaded the world with hate,
has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed.
We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in.
Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want.
Our knowledge has made us cynical,
our cleverness, hard and unkind.
We think too much and feel too little.
More than machinery,
we need humanity.
More than cleverness,
we need kindness and gentleness.
Without these qualities life will be violent
and all will be lost....

To those who can hear me, I say :
''do not despair''.
''do not despair''.
''do not despair''.
The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed,
the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress.
''do not despair''.
''do not despair''.
''do not despair''.
The hate of men will pass, and dictators die.
''do not despair''.
''do not despair''.
The power they took from the people will return to the people.
''do not despair''.
''do not despair''.
The power they took from the people will return to the people.
''do not despair''.
''do not despair''.
The power they took from the people will return to the people.
''do not despair''.
''do not despair''.
The power they took from the people will return to the people.
''do not despair''.
do not...

Soldiers!
Don’t give yourselves to brutes!
Men who despise you, enslave you!
Who regiment your lives!
Tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel!
Who drill you, diet you,
treat you like cattle,
use you as cannon fodder!
Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men!
Machine men! Machine men!

Do you have
machine hearts?
Do you have
machine minds?
Do you have
machine hearts?
Do you have
machine minds?

You have to stop!
You are not machines!
You have to stop your
machine hearts!
You have to stop!
You are not machines!
You're not machines!
You are men!

You have the love of humanity in your hearts!
You don’t hate,
only the unloved hate,
the unloved and the unnatural.
Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty!
In the 17th Chapter of St Luke it is written:
“the Kingdom of God is within man”
not one man nor a group of men,
but in all men!
In you!
You, the people have the power!
The power to create machines!
The power to create happiness!

You, the people, have the power!
To make this life free and beautiful!
To make this life a wonderful adventure!
Let us fight for a new world!
A decent world!
That will give men a chance to work,
that will give youth a future
and old age a security.
By the promise of these things,
brutes have risen to power!
But they lie!
They do not fulfil that promise.
They never will!

Do you have have
machine hearts?
Do you have
machine minds?
Do you have
machine hearts?
Do you have
machine minds?

You have to stop!
You are not machines!
You have to stop your
machine hearts!
You have to stop!
You are not machines!
You're not machines!
You are men!

Dictators free themselves
but they enslave the people!
Now let us fight to fulfil that promise!
To do away with greed,
with hate and intolerance.
Let us fight for a world of reason.
Soldiers, let us all unite!
