about

Ein Lied über das Leben und über Personen, die ihren Mitmenschen Etikette wie "Gewinner" und "Verlierer" anheften. Das Leben ist kein Spiel, es gibt nix zu gewinnen. Bloß ein ständiges hinfallen und wieder aufstehen, hinfallen ...
Mit diesem Titel und Text quasi DER Ska-Allüren Theme-Song, passt sehr zu unserer eigenen Geschichte.

lyrics

Intro:
so called winners are people, who cry in their pillow at night
because they're not allowed, they're not even able
to show their feelings by daytime
but when darkness falls upon the land, ordinary emotions return

Verse 1:
worse than the best but better than the worst
you think you must get higher (and higher) and higher
accept to step on lower people's neck
and push them even deeper in the mire
keep thinking life is all about
appearing a bit like gladstone gander
avoid to mess around with guys
like donalds, that dirty your splendor

Refrain:
life's a chain of failure and you never know what you get
perhaps you see it as a contest but it’s like get up and stand and recollapse
life's a chain of failure and you never know what you get
perhaps you see it as a contest but it’s like get up and stand and recollapse

they want you to play their game
the carrot lures the donkey
the donkey in a trap
purpose of society's a trap

Verse 2:
destiny is not your friend
and life's a chain of suffer
feels like nothing's gonna change your luck
every try makes headwind rougher
iIf self-pity is all you invest,
resignation you'll receive
In your narrow world you rotten everything
(everything) you could achieve

Refrain:
life's a chain of failure and you never know what you get
perhaps you see it as a contest but it’s like get up and stand and recollapse
life's a chain of failure and you never know what you get
perhaps you see it as a contest but it’s like get up and stand and recollapse

they want you to play their game
the carrot lures the donkey
the donkey in a trap
purpose of society's a trap

Verse 3:
world laughs at you but you grin back
not aiming for success.
gaining status at the cost of others
you can’t accept that as progress
you’re able to be contented
don’t need their scales to reflect on yourself
life’s no game so one can’t win it
(neither by power) nor by wealth

Refrain:
life's a chain of failure and you never know what you get
perhaps you see it as a contest but it’s like get up and stand and recollapse
life's a chain of failure and you never know what you get
perhaps you see it as a contest but it’s like get up and stand and recollapse

they want you to play their game about power, wealth and fame
they want you to play their game about power, wealth and fame
they want you to play their game about power, wealth and fame
they want you to play their game
