Hey you know comfort kills the spirit
And life will choke you slowly if you fear it

And we don't care
We never feel as good as when we make believe
And we don't dare
We tell ourselves there's nothing to achieve
Just wanna have some fun before we leave

We got koka-kola veins - we don't know our names
Bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla
We got koka-kola veins - we don't use our brains
Bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla
We got koka-kola pumpin' through our veins

We never messed around with discipline
We got our own jihad if you know what I mean

Hey you know baby we smile to keep from cryin'
You know it's way too late to start tryin'

    General CommentAbsolutley wonderful song. First one of theirs I loved.

    Obviously not about drugs, tough. The french voce in the intro is that of famous 1960's freethinker/anti-capitalist Guy Debord, and what he is saying translates as: "The spectacle in general, as the concrete inversion of life, is the autonomous movement of the non-living. "
    His asserted that life in the current society is nothing but a spectacle,that the means of production infests the very "souls" of the contemporary man; every action. I see "koka-kola veins" as a reference to this, with all the brands and commoditities in today's world.

    General CommentBut there are two versions; one with the french voice and one without it. And without the french voice the song could be about drugs as well.

    General CommentThis song is wonderful!! really get me going... I totally buy AApathy's comment - if it's true.. though another interpretation would be the vietnam war... there was this one year (don't remeber the exact but around 1970s) where 5,000 American men were taken care of for injuries caused during the war. Furthermore, that same year 20,000 were treated for drug addiction or damages due to it. As the video illusrate army men - I would say that this song is a social critique of Vietnam made by the singers!

    General CommentThe french line AApathy is talking about is:

    "Le spectacle en général, comme inversion concrète de la vie, est le mouvement autonome du non-vivant."

    General CommentThis song is about what happens if you drink a lot of soft-drinks.
