You're wondering about G20? Look, capitalism, you failed. Let's try something else, or the rage and desperation will devour us all.

No one has to be a cop! Not all cops automatically turn to 'bastards', but some are so indoctrinated by the existing power imbalances, that they feel like fighting for the right side. (though it's all too often for the right wing...)

But there are no sides, as there are no gods and no devils, we're all fucking HUMAN!

Presented to you by BRUNO IST DAGEGEN collective! Tätätä.

Track Name: Gettin' What You Give
I wouldnt say that every cop‘s a bastard
but I do say that every single one‘s too much
“we‘re there for you” their cars lie in our faces
they’re there to keep us quiet in our grudge

we thought that it was so important
to keep the people busy and the state strong
she’d be freakin out
he’d shoot and scream about
society, you’re getting what you give

There is nothing ever for the people
we keep the machine goin for the worst
we’re just lookin up to the steeple
we’re the last and never will be first

criminality is not a kind of personality
who’s a criminal is decided by who’s in charge
we are the symptoms of this awful disease
and we never learned anything from that

It’s comin’ back, that the youth has nothin’ to do
And we don’t want to work for this system and you
It’s takin’ ‘way our spaces and tramplin’ on our dreams
Believe me, it’s way worse than this whole thing seems

society, you’re getting what you give
do we deserve the shit in which we live?
