"Sandman (real English not a translation)" as written by Robert Flux, - Crap, Dero Goi, Heino (+1967) Gaze, Chris Buseck, Christian Wolff and Jeff Collier....
Europe
Wake up
Can you see your children lined up
On the edge of the abyss they wait?

Europe
Fucked up
Scared to go asleep they stay up
Prisoners of pain.

La Le Lu
Someone's got their eye on you
Now the poorest kids are sleeping
You should sleep too

La Le Lu
And their little hearts freeze through
When the other kids are calling
You're worthless too

Sandman sandman
Please put out the light
The truth is a big scam
So let me dream tonight

Sandman sandman
Standing by my side
Sprinkle star dust into my eyes
And let me sleep 'til I die

Europe
Wake up
Can you see you children hate us
Slowly surely they are damned to fail

Europe
Pumped up
Like a big casino gone bust
Everyone's for sale

La Le Lu
Someone's got their eye on you
Now the poorest kids are sleeping
You should sleep too

La Le Lu
And their little hearts freeze through
When the other kids are calling
You're worthless too.


Sandman sandman
Please put out the light
The truth is a big scam
So let me dream tonight

Sandman sandman
Standing by my side
Sprinkle star dust into my eyes
And let me sleep 'til I die

Let them eat cake someone said
All the children want is bread
Screaming their hearts out every night
Their hunger burning deep inside

Let them eat cake someone said
Until the day she lost her head
Let me show you prosperity
Where children long for what they need

Sandman sandman
Please put out the light
The truth is a big scam
So let me dream tonight

Sandman sandman
Standing by my side
Sprinkle star dust into my eyes
And let me sleep 'til I die


*Everything should be corrected now :)
