Requiem (Réquiem)

Requiem

I observe the world and I see how it suffers and rottens,
the rot of the man covers it
promises and oaths that they turn into ashes
economies based on the debt that slave us
for the end of this civiliztion I shout:

(Chorus)
Requiem, for a world that's sick
Requiem, for these modern times
Requiem, for the hope that's lost
Requiem, for a future that says goodbye to us
Requiem, for the ones that make you a serf
Requiem, for this civilization that dies

(Nach)

dark times, walls of fears and metal
mobs financing another electorial campaign
capitol debts, banks that lies cleverly
families that drink from a puddle of dirty water
politicians making propaganda from terror
being elected, soldiers walking like cyborgs
dissapeared children, mothers waiting in suspense
spinning and vigilating cameras that quietly monitors
viruses manufactured by pharmaceutical companies
chemical wastes, ethnical clean-ups
towns on fire, thousands of drama, human bombs
forbidden banners " where there's written, there's no tomorrow"
countries bleeding out by the coltan
casualties that cope the news but for being poor they ar not cared
cutting salaries, taxes that trashes us
starings that are hating, islamophobia
toxic clouds that are falling and it fumigates us from the sky
forests razed by cement and steel
thaw, ministers playing god
Nazis presenting the news on FOX
CO2 excesses, cough, asthma, suburbian ghost
men that they simply don't want to do thing right
for the end of days I shout Requiem

(Chorus)
Requiem, for a world that's sick
Requiem, for these modern times
Requiem, for the hope that's lost
Requiem, for a future that says goodbye to us
Requiem, for the ones that make you a serf
Requiem, for this civilization that dies

(Immortal Technique)
When I was a kid I believed in democracy
and prayed each night in poverty thanking
ignorance is bliss, it's actually a jungle
change the world it's not something they suggest you (no)
they tell the egyptians rebellion is terrorism
but just right when is perpetrated by imperialism
imagine the lies they told you (shame)
the busines in the government temple is the same
and they kill for interupting it just like Jesuschrist
that's the reason they killed communism
it was never to free the hispanic people
it only enriched the American corporation
and European too, you know how it's performed
just like you didn't do anything, pacified population
this economy is a factory
and escape it without revolution is a fantasy
I'd rather fight than being locked up in a cell
Like a puerto rican student who's on strike
the debt is modern slavery
but none dictatorship has eternal life
eventually people get tired of the abuse
and they defeat politicians that only speak for fun
requiem is the end but not the end of the world
it's the end of fascism, we get up together!

(Chorus)
Requiem, for a world that's sick
Requiem, for these modern times
Requiem, for the hope that's lost
Requiem, for a future that says goodbye to us
Requiem, for the ones that make you a serf
Requiem, for this civilization that dies
