Pravda – What Did You Expect lyrics

As soon as you switch off your television
You'll wake from a world of cheap illusion,
It's too late for action
The job you took for granted is history
Your boyfriend is drafted to the same butchery
You saw on television.
What did you expect? What did you expect?

As soon as you switch off your television
You'll wake to the strange impression
The world is running into fascism
Now you'd like to stand up & fight
But all the rights you took for granted
Are gone, you sold them for a cheap flight.
