Comrade, do you even know my name?
Do you really feel the same about the troubles of the world?
Comrade, though our cause has been betrayed
Many times and in many ways
Don’t let it make us lose our faith
In each other, in the world, in the Struggle
so why do you call me Comrade?
Is it just because I’m here?
And that you’re too seized up with fear
To tell me what you really think?
And how you feel about the existent and the ideal?
Yes do really feel the same, or in your heart is this a game?
Or are you my comrade?
Prepared to be there by my side
If one or both of us should die
In the pursuit of our shared aims?
