"Kill The Idealist" as written by and Antti Kokko Pasi Hiltula....
A pioneer of humanity
Declaring his truth to the crowd
Word of wisdom is what he speaks
Wisdom he has never reached

A well-educated know-it-all
But never has done anything
Collects info from sources
The vice man has left behind

Kill the idealist
Get him a job
Kill the agitator
Capital rules the world

So let him found a labor
On his own certain conditions
And try to heal society
Without support

    General CommentI think it's kind of ironic and sarcastic. Telling us that Big Brother wants to "kill the idealist" in all of us; that is to say, stop independent thought, and to ensure that we not worry about anything but the tedium of day-to-day work ("Capital rules the world")

    That's the way I understand the Chorus, in a nutshell. The rest, i believe, shows that society is reluctant to change.

    One of my favorite songs...bleak as it may be.
