LORD OF THE LOST - Not My Enemy

As a direct reaction to the war in Ukraine, LORD OF THE LOST set a sign for peace and international understanding with new music. Shortly after the first attacks on Ukrainian targets became known, the band around Chris Harms set out to express their thoughts and feelings through a new song and to make a clear statement for peace. To release the song as soon as possible, the accompanying music video was shot by the band with selfie cams instead of their usual large-scale production. Throughout the years, the German band has repeatedly taken steadfast positions on social issues and expressed their solidarity with disadvantaged groups of people. LORD OF THE LOST WILL DONATE ALL PROFITS FOR THIS SONG TO REFUGEES FROM THIS WAR! LORD OF THE LOST on the current conflict and "Not My Enemy": "What's happening in the world right now is not a war of people. It's a war of the authorities. Civilians of different backgrounds are dying and suffering because of this war - inside Ukraine and outside. No human being chooses before birth within which borders they will be born. No border, which is held, moved or broken by the bloodhounds of the autocrats of this world, is worth that sisters and brothers, mothers and fathers hate each other and that innocent children are born and raised into these paradigms and ideologies. This hatred does not begin in a conflict like this, fueled by censorship, information warfare, and fake news - this hatred begins in the minds of each of us, as well as in the comment columns of increasingly anti-social networks. Especially in days like these, as well as in the years to come, it is even more important to understand that the only thing that separates us is what we allow to happen, yet at the core, everything unites us. You’re not my enemy, you’re a part of me. You’re not my enemy, wherever you come from, whatever you look like and whatever you believe in. You’re not my enemy! This song was created as an immediate reaction from us, shortly after the attack on Ukraine. We produced and released it as soon as possible in the hopes that it would touch and make people think. If even one person is reached with it, it was already worth it.”

Lyrics:

Not My Enemy

You’re not my enemy
We should be living side by side
My reason to believe
We are more than war and pride

Long as I’m breathing
You can lean on me
We won’t be enemies 
We’re family

Open your arms to me  
A friend in need
With dreams that echo mine
From far across the sea
Or the nearest street
As we suffer to survive

I don’t believe in
Their borders or sides
Our bond will never be 
Torn by their fights

You’re not my enemy
Not my enemy
All the love will not be gone  
We stand in unity
There will always be
A road that we walk on
You’re not my enemy
Not my enemy
Not once alone

You’re not my enemy
Not my enemy

You’re not my enemy
For we can see
We are sharing the same sky
Yes our mother tongue
May be different
But our yearnings unify

Long as I’m breathing
You can hold on to me
For all we ever need
Is humanity

You’re not my enemy
Not my enemy
All the love will not be gone  
We stand in unity
There will always be
A road that we walk on
You’re not my enemy
Not my enemy
Not once alone 

The authority
Is the minority
Us the people
We’re the majority
Our bond shall never be broken

You’re not my enemy
Not my enemy
All the love will not be gone  
We stand in unity
There will always be
A road that we walk on
You’re not my enemy
Not my enemy
Not once alone 

You are a part of me
You’re not my enemy
Through all Insanity
You’re not my enemy  

Brothers and sisters an mothers and misters
And parents and children, we are
All from the same blood
And all from the same womb
All from the same dust of the stars

You’re not my enemy

lord of the lost, Not My Enemy, no war
