Stadt och Kapitalet subtitles English Ebba Grön

The State and Capital

Capital raises the rents,

and the state the housing allowance

So one can cheat a little crumb

with the iron wage law

And pay even less in wages

than the price for food and rent

Because the state runs better,

if the cost of living goes

even higher

Side by side, they help each other out

The state and capital sit in the same boat

But they aren’t the one’s rowing

Rowing so the sweat is dripping

And the whip that tickles, doesn’t tickle

their fat necks either

The charge of the schools is as it should

to teach the working class

If the brooms are going to clean properly

you can’t neglect the handle

Barriers and quotas and standardized tests,

it’s a system made to separate

The wheat from the chaff and move everyone

to their rightful home

Yes, side by side, together they push forward

The state and capital, two wolves in sheep's clothing

But they aren’t the one’s rowing

Rowing so the sweat is dripping

And the whip that tickles, doesn’t tickle

their fat necks either

Side by side, they help each other out

The state and capital sit in the same boat

But they aren’t the one’s rowing

Rowing so the sweat is dripping

And the whip that tickles, doesn’t tickle

their fat necks either

The tempo is raised by machines,

here we drill the elite

Production doesn’t have a place for the one

who has become threadbare

But so that no one thinks there is anything wrong

with the heavy piecework

He is put on disability and taken care of by the compassionate unemployment office

Yes, side by side, together they push forward

The state and capital, two wolves in sheep's clothing

But they aren’t the one’s rowing

Rowing so the sweat is dripping

And the whip that tickles, doesn’t tickle

their fat necks either

Side by side... Aaah aah aaaah!
