Face down.
Obey to who is ordering:
God and master.
Each one of us has someone to please.
Work more, faster,
the show, it must go on.
Work more, spend more,
Happiness is one purchase away.
We live our lives like if our condition would be just a phase.
In wait of some kind of recognition that will surely not come.
As for me, I had enough.
From now on, never more.
Work more, buy more, spend more,
then rot in peace.
Work more, buy more.
Happiness is one purchase away.
Vicious circle,
I put an end to this vicious circle.
Will this persecution end only once I'm dead?
And so we'll live in blood, sweat, and tears: no love no hate.
And so we'll die: bound to happen.
I won't die the same.
Conscious.
Happiness can't be bought.
No respect can be found in a system based on our craze for the superfluous.
Happiness can't be bought.
Dignity is coming back as I swear to myself now:
From now on, never more.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's about obeying someone you don't like until death. Or at least wishing for death whilst working. About slaves then maybe?
