All Monuments They Have Built

You wanna
Get rid of all the shit
And all the monuments they've built
Has modern life taught you whether to hate?
 
You wanna
You wanna kill, kill for pleasure
All the monuments they've built
Has modern life taught you whether to hate?
 
We can't change everything you did
It's a question of
Don't know whether you're falling
All in your turn, you're raising your hands
 
All your words full of taught killing
Kill the dreams
You had your solutions
Has modern life taught you whether to hate?
 
God damn you thought you would be right
You know when it's time to try to fight
And so I'll turn around - I say
God damn you thought you would be right
You know when it's time to try to fight
And so I'll turn around
 
You wanna
Get rid of all the shit
And all the monuments they've built
Has modern life taught you whether to hate?
 
You wanna
You wanna kill, kill for pleasure
All the monuments they've built
Has modern life taught you whether to hate?
 
God damn you thought you would be right
No one in sight to try to fight
You still won't turn around, I said
God damn you thought you would be right
No one in sight to try to fight
You still won't turn around
 
You wanna change the world tomorrow
But will the world follow
You live with a million friends but all alone
You wanna build yourself a world, but
Will the world follow
You live with a million friends but all alone
 
Yeah, yeah
 
God damn you thought you would be right
No one in sight to try to fight
You still won't turn around, I said
God damn you thought you would be right
No one in sight to try to fight
You still won't turn around
 
God damn you thought you would be right
No one in sight to try to fight
You still won't turn around
God damn you thought you would be right
No one in sight to try to fight
You still won't turn around
 
bedankt!

Some corrections I'm reasonably sure of:

To be pleasured -> Kill for pleasure
In few days -> you did
Need to question him -> It's a question of [not sure about 'it's']
Now we're waiting this morning -> Don't know whether you're falling[?]
Waiting your turn -> All in your turn
All I want is -> All your words
smooth and stop killing -> full of taught killing [not sure about 'taught']
Killing dreams -> Kill the dreams
You had the solution -> You had your solutions[?]
You know when it's time -> No one in sight [I think]
And so I'll -> You still won't
I say -> (I) said [before the repeats of 'goddamn']

Now to the really difficult bit, where you have 'smarter to talk to, wiser to hit'. The fact that our hearings are so different only goes to show how unclear the pronunciation is. (I think they're French Canadians trying to sound British).

Still, here goes:

Smarter to talk to -> Has modern life taught you
The repetitions of the next bit should help, but sometimes they make it sound more like 'why did you hate?' [1.35-1.36]; sometimes more like 'under two hands' [0.57-0.58], neither of which fits with my interpretation of the first part of the line. So limited help I'm afraid.

Thanks for the input.
I previously had the lines

You know when it's time to try to fight
And so I'll turn around

as

Nobody tired to try to fight
You still won't turn around

But got correction from @mescabob to the current line.
Since we now have three interpretations of the song, I'm not sure what to do with this info.

Hi gernih - I don't think I have access to that message and also can't find their profile to see if they are a native speaker, but if you want to stop getting comments you can always take the request for proofreading off.

I got their transcription as PM outside of LT. They are a fluent speaker with English as second laguage, like me.
I do not want to stop getting comments on this. I appreciate the input.
I just don't know how to process all the inputs.

Fair enough. I don't think I'm going to hear it any differently from now on, but I do think it's always harder for non-native speakers.
