about

The song deals with the issue of nuclear power, and of politicians forgetting about their duty to serve the people, instead of the other way around. Motivated by the desire for power and financial gain, decisions are made that have a life-changing impact on millions of people's lives. As citizens of this world, I believe it is imperative that we stand up and fight such injustice, for the sake of all humanity.

I wrote this song when a family member in Ukraine was diagnosed with an incurable lung disease at age 26 and told she would die within 6 months unless she could have a lung transplantation.
We succeeded in raising 150.000 Euros for her surgery, which saved her life. It was a situation that seemed impossible to overcome, but based on our united efforts we made the impossible possible. This is also what this song is about. To never give up. When the going gets tough, that's exactly the time to stand up and fight.

lyrics

When I met you
I thought you were so sweet
you didn't ask for much
But nothing's perfect
that much we know by now

Just when you think you're safe you're getting knocked over by life's challenges
Just when you think you got it figured out you find yourself stranded

Now it's time to fight, my friend
Now it's time to fight
Now it's time to fight, my friend
Now it's time to fight for what's right

You weren't asked when big decisions were made
you weren't thought of then
And nothing's perfect
that much we know by now

And when the accident happened
you were warm in your mother's womb
but radiation made it to you
burned its mark on your fragile life

Now it's time to fight, my friend
Now it's time to fight
Now it's time to fight, my friend
Now it's time to fight for what's right
