lyrics

Desensitized to the pain! We all grow oblivious,
To the violence they feed, They Train (us) to forget To hate ourselves
And to cut each others throats.
There's a war at home but we ignore it As long as is contained.
Years of failed reaganomic policies, Systematic neglect,
We know it and we don't give a fuck! Who's to blame for the horrors in Chiraq? Schools are just preparing us for prison, The need for crime is always there
To justify police brutality.
Real estate exploitation,
Produces ghettos.
We all grow oblivious,
They train us to forget.
We all grow oblivious!
_________________________________________

Insensibles al dolor nos tornamos inconscientes
A la violencia que engendran.
Nos entrenan a obedecer
A odiarnos y a cortarnos mutuamente las gargantas. Hay Guerra en casa pero preferimos ignorarla Siempre y cuando este aislada.
Años de políticas "reaganomicas" fallídas
Negligencia sistematica
Todos lo saben pero a nadie le importa.
Quien es culpable de los horrores en chiraq?
Las escuelas solo nos preparan para la prisión.
El crimen es necesario para justificar la brutalidad policial La explotación inmobiliaria produce los ghettos. Insensibles al dolor nos tornamos inconscientes.
