Hope is a sick joke 03:48
As long as we measure the value of a man By how many other men bow to him As long as we measure the strength of a man By the number of his victims As long as we worship the fighting cocks The lions and the peacocks As long as we take pride in tears In humiliation and fear There can be no hope There can be no hope How could there be hope? Hope is a sick joke How can we look at ourselves in the mirror And not burst out laughing? How can we think we are masters and landlords When we’re just puppets on a string? Like I said before our chains are plated gold So we can pretend they are jewels Our prisons have wi-fi and beer is ice cold So we can all revel like fools There can be no hope There can be no hope How could there be hope? Hope is a sick joke How much crap has been poured in our heads That we love what hurts us the most? How many lies have we been breastfed By shadows of long extinct ghosts? All that we touch we turn into a war zone Can’t we do better than that? All of the shams and deceit we condone Is this what it’s all about? There can be no hope There can be no hope How could there be hope? Hope is a sick joke
