The Lyrics

This tells the story about a powerful warrior who can fly and has the ability of granting wishes.
Well Zemeno he lives in Frankfurt
He is so strong and he is powerful
He makes all of the people happy, oh
He don't care about nobody here
He's got an active skill called "PenalBlaze"
It fights a monster in a big city
But maybe power will make Zemeno see
How everybody could a live as one

Gimme hope, Zemeno
Hope, Zemeno
Gimme hope, Zemeno
'Fore the morning come
Gimme hope, Zemeno
Hope, Zemeno
Hope before the morning come

I hear he makes all the wishes granted
He can read our minds, he knows what we want
He converts all our nightmares that we fear
Into dreams that are interesting
Sneakin' across all the neighbors' borders
Now and again granting their wishes
He doesn't care if the wishes of others
Is common to ev'ryone

Gimme hope, Zemeno
Gimme hope, Zemeno
Gimme hope, Zemeno
'Fore the morning come
Gimme hope, Zemeno
Gimme hope, Zemeno
Hope before the morning come

He's got supporters in high up places
Who turn their heads to look at his face
Zemeno give them the things that they need
Oh to do whatever they need to do
He even knows how to give advices
To every person and kid that he sees
For every bad move that this Zemeno makes
They got a good explanation

Gimme hope, Zemeno
Gimme hope, Zemeno
Gimme hope, Zemeno
'Fore the morning come
Gimme hope, Zemeno
Gimme hope, Zemeno
Hope before the morning come

Even his sidekick who's name is Yildun
The Street locator who's very brave
Together say that the freedom fighters
Will overcome the very strong
I wanna know about you Zemeno
If you wanna can answer my request I told
Can't you see that my mind is waiting
Oh don't make me wait till the morning come

Do give hope, Zemeno
Gimme hope, Zemeno
Gimme hope, Zemeno
'Fore the morning come
Gimme hope, Zemeno
Gimme hope, Zemeno
Hope before the morning come

Gimme hope, Zemeno
Gimme hope, Zemeno
Gimme hope, Zemeno
'Fore the morning come
Gimme hope, Zemeno
Gimme hope, Zemeno
Hope before the morning come
