When the power of economy lays in the hands of few
Justice will only reach the highest bidder
At the bottom of society - workers and unemployed
Our silence only makes their pockets fatter

FIRST THEY DRIVE US TO THE PRESSURE POINT
AND THEN THEY WATCH US COLLAPSE
THEY STRESS US WITH THEIR INDIFFERENCE
WE'RE JUST PAWNS IN THEIR GAME

Workers and unemployed, how much more degradation
For centuries we've been their possession
No rights, but obligations in their uncontrolled production
At the cost of both dignity and man

FIRST THEY DRIVE US…

Capitalism means economical growth
But only for the rich in this world
Capitalism lacks the ability
to righteously distribute the resources
It creates an abundance of goods in the industrial countries
Whilst large parts of humanity has no food for the day…

FIRST THEY DRIVE US…
