Welcome to society

Wait here for your number.

Show only propriety

And wish that you were younger.

Wish for things you'll never need.

Be ashamed and be afraid.

You're not precious or unique,

Here's your label and your name.


Throw your eyes onto the floor.

Wisely choose your associate.

To love and love once more,

Ladies, is not appropriate.


To be a son and love a son?                               

Watch what’s in your hand.

God takes men who hold their gun,

Not who’ll hold another man.


Study all the rules

But you won’t survive.

Life’s a game for fools

And you can’t escape alive.


Read your tag, memorize.

It's your only friend.

Know your color and your size,

They're all you are in the end.
