DON'T LET THEM WIN

They will try to scare you, please you, bribe you
They will make promises, show you the easy part of life
They will tell you lies, give you slimy compliments
They will try to stop you from thinking
Or make you think they are just and honest
They will ask you to do yourself a favor
Like they won’t take anything for themselves

Turn them down, fuck ‘m all
Don’t let them fool you, don’t let them buy you
All they want is your soul, all they want is dirty gain 

After you turn them down, you will see their real faces
Facades will fall off
Claws and jaws stinking of their bloody ordeals will show
Smooth words will turn into morbid growls
The white book in their hands will turn black
The lyre will become a dagger
They’ll push you, kick you, kill you

Turn them down, fuck ‘m all
Don’t let them break you
Don’t let them win
The fight is about to begin

They have the money
They have the power of force
Tanks and truncheons, courts and prisons
They have the skies filled with COMSATs
The ground covered with wires,
CCTV and other surveillance toys

They have the money and force
Armies, police and bureaucrats to guard them
Gigantic machinery to keep them in power
Media, institutions, education systems
Always loaded with dutiful creatures
Always ready to obey, ready to commit
Unspeakable crimes to keep you down in the dust

Turn them down, fuck’m all
Don’t let them break you
Don’t let them win
The fight is about to begin

They may be huge and strong and ruthless
But they are stupid, old and ugly
Their dogs are shallow and slow
They have the muscle, you have the brains
You are smart and young and beautiful
They have the money, you have the youth
They have the COMSATs, you have the spray
They have the shotguns and tear gas
You have the stones and slogans
They own the land, you have the universe
They have the media, you have the sense of humor
They are going to die, you will remain
They will oppress, you will prevail

Turn them down, fuck’m all
Don’t let them fool you, don’t let them buy you
All they want is your soul, all they want is dirty gain
Make your dreams come true
For they will turn your life into nightmare

Turn them down, fuck’m all
Don’t let them break you
Don’t let them win
The fight is about to begin

I GIVE YOU FREEDOM

by Xhabir M. Deralla

I give you freedom
I feed you
I let you work for me
I give you life and progress
Unless you are disobedient

I am your god
Unless you want me be your devil
I bring your decisions
And let you think that you decide

I watch you everywhere, 24/7
For the sake of your security

I give you pills to make you happy
I tell you what love is
I teach you what beauty is
I tell you what human is

And – it is human to kill under my command
It is civilized to attack and slaughter, rape and loot
It is honorable to die for me

I give you money to promote human rights
I let you say few nasty words about me
I even let you have some pocket money when you criticize me
You like that game, and I let you play

I engage your mind to invent new, sophisticated weapons
I take your best years to make a profit for the chosen ones
I let you die unconscious of the evil
I spare you from the pain of thinking

I extinguish nations and races
To create more space for you
To let you cherish freedom and democracy
And pay taxes neatly and regularly

When disbelief torments you, turn on the TV
