You’re born, then you’re dead.
Between the two, no matter what.
From the day you’re born, you’re made to speak, then to study.
Study hard study well, that is your duty.
Primary, secondary, Uni, then Job!
We’re all set for that dark machine
Cause you don’t go further, no you don’t pass over.
You don’t think, because they told you “learn that shit for me, won’t you?”.
You don’t learn for knowledge, but only for privilege.
To get a good work, and a good meal, if you do it well that’s the deal.
You’re planning to buy happiness with money you get from your boss,
you don’t wanna fall into laziness, doing what inspires you, because the 22 years you invest now just have gone behind you.
That’s how it works here today, whether you study or you die,
all they told you since you’re there, you don’t know if it’s all a lie.
Cause that’s the system.
If you start asking what to do, they’ll tell you to work more, but if you don’t wonder a little bit, you’re stuck in formality even more.
If you start watching TV, then you’ll become a f*cking racist, because all they’ll tell you in the news is that white French people are the best.
That those who won their lives are those who invest,
the business-man, the hard-worker, who spent his life getting power.
They tell you politics are real, and you need it,
so that you forget it’s marketing, and you accept and vote for it.
It feels like politicians with great vision exist only in fiction, and these you see are the well dressed, that will sell best.
Right here behind you is the system that made you, there are the guys that always told you “Live, work, die, delete your dreams and wear that tie”.
