KMFDM – Rip The System V. 2.0 lyrics

War and slavery, exploitation
The common basis of a western nation
Official version, a falsified story
The truth lies buried in a shroud of glory

Oppression, ignorance, idiocy rule
Education is more than what's taught in school
Forced in a mold, held down by threats
Decisions are made over our heads

But there is a way to refuse and resist
We don't need to be ruled with the iron fist
We are the people, we are strong
Let's make up our minds and prove 'em wrong

Black man, white man, yellow man
Black man, white man, rip the system
Black man, white man, yellow man
Black man, white man, rip the system

Religion and TV, you're under the thumb
Made to believe 'cause you're already numb
Smoke and mirrors, a bitter surprise
The ideals that were crammed down your throat all turned out to be lies

Black man, white man, yellow man
Black man, white man, rip the system
Black man, white man, yellow man
Black man, white man, rip the system

Influential people aren't serving time
For being involved in organised crime
Stashed away in beautiful mansions
Guess who provides for their generous pensions

But regular folks when they fail to deliver
Get pent-up in jail and sent up the river
Begging the question: what's the deal?
No peace without justice and that's for real

But there is a way to refuse and resist
We don't need to be ruled with the iron fist
We are the people, we are strong
Let's make up our minds and prove 'em wrong

Black man, white man, yellow man
Black man, white man, rip the system
Black man, white man, yellow man
Black man, white man, rip the system

Rip the system
Rip the system
Rip the system
Rip the system

Not a day goes by without terrible news
Sky is falling, hell breaks loose
It absolutely makes no sense
To do nothing but hope for a turn of events

Black man, white man, yellow man
Black man, white man, rip the system
Black man, white man, yellow man
Black man, white man, rip the system

Rip the system
Rip the system
Rip the system
