Injustice lies behind every corner
Unquestioning fools choose to bow their heads living with mindcuffs
submissive and blind
No distrust in power kickin down and kissin up
The arm of the law - always on my back always got their watchful eyes following my tracks
this gap between us, the bridges have been burnt
keep cracking the whip, get my scorn in return
"We're way behind we're living on the edge of time
We must get rich becoming poor became a crime
Many promises where made but in the end
The first to die has always been the working man
They tell our kids in school it's like that don't ask why
We gotta work until we're old enough to die
The more we learn the more we still don't understand
The first to die has always been the working man"
The act of insubordination freed Adam and Eve and opened their eyes. They saw each other as strangers and the outside world seemed alien or even hostile to them. Their act of insubordination broke the primeval bond with nature and made them independent individuals. "Original sin" didn't demoralize men but freed them; it was the beginning of history.
