Deutschland über Alles.

Horst Wessel Lied.
We 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake  we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the  young for a long long time."

Isn't 'every breath you take' about a stalker?

Anyways, plenty, I guess.

"Zeven dagen lang." (Trans: Seven days long. Freely translated below)

What shall we drink
Seven days long.
What shall we drink, what a thirst
What shall we drink,
Seven days long
What shall we drink, what a thirst.

There is enough for everyone
So we drink together,
Bring out the keg,
Yes, we drink together, not alone
There is enough for everyone
So we drink together
Bring out the keg
Yes, we drink together, not alone

Then we will work
Seven days long
Then we will work, for eachother
Then we will work
Seven days long
Yes, we will work, for eachother

Then there is work for everyone
So we work together
Seven days long
Yes, we work together, not alone
Then there is work for everyone
So we work together
Seven days long
Yes, we work together, not alone

There is enough for everyone
So we drink together
Bring out the keg
Yes, we drink together, not alone
There is enough for everyone
So we drink together
Bring out the keg
Yes, we drink together, not alone

First we must fight
No-one knows how long
First we must fight, for our interests
First we must fight
No-one knows how long
First we must fight, for our interests

For the sake of everyone
So we fight together
Together we are strong
Yes, we fight together, not alone
For the sake of everyone
So we fight together
Together we are strong
Yes, we fight together, not alone

 La la la la la lala la la la la
 La lalala la la la la la
 La la la la la lala la la la la
 La lalala la la la la la
 La la la la la la la la
 La lalala la la lala la la la la
 La lalala la la la la la
 La la la la la la la la
 La lalala la la lala la la la la
 La lalala la la la la la


The song: https://youtu.be/St2SrgB_En4

In the end, we are all standing in the dark,
trying to figure out why we are here.
But let us not choose one direction
without proof of where it is headed.

Check your pocket for matches
so we can observe and learn together
as fast friends and relative idiots.

All hail the mighty leader Donald
We must bow before his feet!
He is the paragon of wisdom
As can be seen in every tweet!

And every ad jingle you hear on the radio, see in movies or on TV.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

If that doesn't bring you to tears, you have no heart.

I enjoy good national anthems of other countries.  I am not threatened by their patriotism, I feel kindred.

A shared melody ....

It's not so American when the British Redcoats made to it make fun of the American rebels in the American Revolution. Which The rebels in turn made their song.
