"(I've Got) Survival Sickness" as written by and Inge Johansson Dennis Lyxzen....
Manifest this repression with smart bombs and easy listening
Rally me up in this non-decision making, I got my mind in for the taking
My heart still hurts from last night
I've got survival sickness
Entertain me, the plot thickens, serve me up some (promises) of your good living
A grand total of understatement, show me salvation and I'll tell you why I hate it
My heart still hurts from last night
I've got survival sickness
You know how it feels not to be wanted down here
You know how it feels not to feel at home anywhere
You know how it feels to live down on your knees
You know how it feels to always say please
My heart still hurts from last night
I've got survival sickness

    General CommentCapitalism has demystified survival. It has made the poverty of daily life intolerable in view of the increasing wealth of technical possibilities. Survival has become an economizing on life. The civilization of collective survival increases the dead time in individual lives to the point where the death forces are liable to carry the day over collective survival itself. The only hope is that the passion for destruction may be reconverted into a passion for life.

    Up until now people have merely complied with a system of world transformation. Today the task is to make the system comply with the transformation of the world.
