Перевод песни Old Man Markley – America's Dreaming

Работает на технологии Яндекс.Переводчика
If crooks are in charge, should we let them pick our pockets?
If we don't want trouble, should we not try to stop it?
We could just sink into the quicksand slavery we're born in But fighting endless wars for greedy liars is getting pretty boring
They think they got us trained, so we'll think we're living free
If we got time and money for junk food and TV
But it's plain honest people never stand a chance of winning elections
They just let us pick which liars take our rights away for our own protection
The corporate propaganda paralyzes us with fear
Destroying our ability to trust
Fear keeps us fighting with each other over scraps
Starving to death in the dust
Organized religion really helps you submit
But the meek are inheriting the short end of the stick
Think twice (think twice) we're awaking from the dream
Think twice (think twice) we don't like what we see
Fear surrounds compassion like a layer of mold
And weakens our defenses so we're too weak to be bold
Life could be heaven, but this corrupted system
Takes away our rights, expects us not to miss them
The middle class is shrinking while the lower class grows
If we don't wake up soon, we'll have no class left to lose
But at least we're getting by, and there's heaven when we die
It's hard for honest people to recognize a lie
It's an American dream, there's no pie in the sky
We're running out of credit, we can't afford to buy it If it weren't so sad, it'd be a goddamn riot
Think twice, the change that we need can be found
Think twice, just don't expect to get it handed down
Think twice, right now it's up to you and me Our hearts guide our minds to make greed obsolete
Don't run in circles all your life just hoping
To grab a horse on a debt carousel
