The State and the Capital
SOCIETY AND POWER - 03/02/2019

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...
