​The History Of Mystery

This song is by Triumvirat and appears on the album Old Loves Die Hard (1976).

Give me a chance
To see through my reason
Wasting my time
While life is still so young?
Have I lost faith
In things we believed in
All the answers are lost, everyone

Aggression right inside my head
Is natural as my doctor said
My hero is a loaded gun
It really works, it's deadly fun
Our teacher keeps a polished knife
To guard his kids - protect his wife
The hate of twenty centuries
Rejects the love in you and me

The latest education plan
Tells children Hitler was a fool
And yet we follow where he led
The killing trade, the gun's the tool
No country ever starts to fight
They're just defending, as they say
We sit at home and watch the news
Surprise! Nobody killed today!

If laws' divided into classes
If justice is a rich man's game
Then who defends the poorer masses
A lawyer with an unknown name?
You beat your wife, you pay your bail
You steal a car, six months in jail
We know that violence still increases
As one of mankind's new diseases

Don't ask me what the answer is
It's just confusion in my head
It makes no difference how you vote
You might as well just stay in bed
An empty stomach makes you think
A steak or two might save your day
So drown your sorrows in your drink
There's really nothing left to say
