Human Rights LYRICS:
(Text, Music, Video by Kristina Kanders © 2011 Cologne, New York
Produced by Kristina Kanders, co-produced by Bernd Gast)

Let us start reposessing our human rights,
cause we are born free and equal and enjoy the same light
we have a conscience we have reason and have dignity
now let us act towards each other like we're family

It should not matter what's your color, nor what gender you are
What you believe, what you think, if you're from near or far
Your position and your status, what country you are from
All this does not matter cause we all belong

We all share the right to live, and to be free
and enjoy real security, in a shared humanity
let there be no more degrading or slavery
let us all stop the torture and the cruelty

It is our duty to develop our personality, to live a happy life, responsibly
and obey each others rights and freedoms with morality and public order for the welfare of society

All mothers and children are entitled to special care and our protection
Everyone has the right to access and the duty to at least some education.
It shall promote understanding, tolerance and friendship among nations, racial and religious groups,
for the maintenance of peaceful relations.

Use your right for defence, you are not guilty until proven
No penalty should be given unless it is appropriate
No one should interfere with your correspondence home or family
No one should be subject to attack on their reputation or their privacy.

It is our duty to develop our personality, to live a happy life, responsibly
and obey each others rights and freedoms with morality and public order for the welfare of society
We are free to enjoy the benefits of art and science and take part in our culture and community
All of the above must be upheld by us individually as well as internationally.




We have the freedom of thought conscience and religion in privacy and publicly
We can express our opinions freely and have the right to get together peacefully
We are free to give and receive information
No one may be compelled to belong to an association

As members of society we are entitled to social security
and the free development of our personality.
Everyone has the right to work in just and fair conditions
And to earn equal pay for a dignified humane existence.

It is our duty to develop our personality, to live a happy life, responsibly
and obey each others rights and freedoms with morality and public order for the welfare of society
We are free to enjoy the benefits of art and science and take part in our culture and community
All of the above must be upheld by us individually as well as internationally.
