Lyrics:

“Assalamu Alaikum”
by Hellmut Hattler

mines in my soul blast if I only think of you
we never gonna bite one´s bait – even if your story was true
staring through my window pane – watch you digging on my ground
to post some flags and tanks – shows who´s up and who´s around

let´s get back to the minimum to get away from the minimal talk
assalamu alaikum my little white gods
why don´t you raise your hands and burn that fence down
better get back to the minimum to get away from the minimal talk
assalamu alaikum my lazy white dove
why don´t you spread your wings to leave that zoo

warriors of belief – or victims of the twisted word
we never gonna bite one´s bait – rather gonna bite the dirt
staring through my window pane: brandnew flagpoles on my ground
funny last revenge: to lock me in won´t keep me down

let´s better get back to the minimum to get away from the minimal talk
shalom I like ´em – my little white gods
why don´t you raise your heads and pop that fence down
better get back to the minimum to get away from the minimal talk
assalamu alaikum my lazy white dove
why don´t you spread your wings to leave that zoo now

    In this case, Roger Waters should better hurry up! It could be even more efficient to play down there BEFORE the wall comes down. Just be sure to play on the right side ;-)
