Перевод песни Van Der Graaf Generator – Sci-Finance

Работает на технологии Яндекс.Переводчика
You got some shares in a speculative venture
You got some stock in a gilt-edged bond
You stretched out tight by the terms of debenture
The game is on…
You chase the bulls in eternal corrida
The thought of loss is more than you can bear
You scan the index for a market leader
A tip and a prayer
You better see daylight:
Night comes on the City so soon
You say you are a christian capitalist
But you dance to a different tune
Jobs for the boys and dole for the shop-floor;
Rationalize, strip the assets and run
If the contract stalls, then you’ve just got to cop more, ain’t Monopoly fun?
You made some pretty deals along the way
Judas and Faust are in accord
When the revolution comes you may be blown away
But I bet you’ll end up on the board…
Only the money
Only the money
Sometime in the future you may realize that the day
You made your decision to follow money as a goal was
You darkest dawn--and that, since then, you have
Venerated figures as deities; and, for you
People are just pawns
But that deal includes you:
You’re just an asset like the rest
And you, too, stripped naked, beg the Money-God
Not to put you to the test
He’s got no further use for you
Now, there is silence on the floor
Clever money-computers chatter privately
No people any more
Only the money
