Potresti soffrire di capitalismo
You keep telling me to climb this ladder
I've got to pay my dues
But as I rise, the stakes get higher
I've got the Capitalist Blues
When I give everything
I won't have much more to lose

I am swimming in an ocean of sharks
They are telling me how I'm gonna make
My little mark in this cold, cold world
It can be such a cold, cold world

You keep telling me to go a little higher
Try to take a different view
But you can see I'm not inspired
I've got the Capitalist Blues
And if I give everything
I won't have much more to lose

It's not fair, it's not right
I don't know what I'm gonna do with my life
It's not fair, it's not right
I wasn't born to just endure all this strife
Tryna make my way in this cold, cold world
It can be such a cold, cold world
