Lyrics

Ladies and gentlemen, it's time
for all the good that's in you to shine
for all the lights to lose their shade
for all the hate that's in you to fade
Ladies and gentlemen, it's time
for the maracas and the tambourines
to play them until they break or until the day breaks
don't hide anymore, it's time to be seen

Ladies and gentlemen, it's time
for you to flash like a dancer who aims to please
time to unbutton every button of your cowardice
time to be warm in the dark, don't let the dancer freeze
Ladies and gentlemen, it's time
the bartender is looking you right in the eye
he says, "I'm gonna replace all your weak blood with my wine,
If you can't live with the truth, go ahead - try and live with a lie"

Ladies and gentlemen, it's time
for all the good that's in you to shine
for all the lights to lose their shade
for the hate that's in you to fade
to fade
to fade
to fade
