Every day I struggle
struggle to keep my way, I say
away from babylon
that keeps me locked away in chains
devil’s cycle of debt and gain
everybody’s walking on the same path
the same path of life
still nobody knows what I’m going through
but everyone keeps guessing
and thus messing
with my head
soon I’ll be breaking bad
don’t you know that I wanna stay alive?
I wanna stay alive in this fucked up world
Now you know my trouble
and trouble does not keep away, I say
keep away from me
what do you need to see that you’re not free?
Break your chains with education, information
Liberty is only for those who bought it
with blood, sweat and tears that others brought in
others like us who never see the light
struggle every day and night
only not to perish
they come collect what you cherish
you better be ready to ensure you stay alive!
Don’t you wanna stay alive?
