Testo della canzone The Trouble With Normal di Bruce Cockburn
Album:
Strikes across the frontier and strikes for higher wage Planet lurches to the right as ideologies engage Suddenly it’s repression, moratorium on rights What did they think the politics of panic would invite? Person in the street shrugs — Security comes first But the trouble with normal is it always gets worse

Callous men in business costume speak computerese Play pinball with the Third World trying to keep it on its knees Their single crop starvation plans put sugar in your tea And the local Third World’s kept on reservations you don’t see It’ll all go back to normal if we put our nation first But the trouble with normal is it always gets worse

Fashionable fascism dominates the scene When ends don’t meet it’s easier to justify the means Tenants get the dregs and landlords get the cream As the grinding devolution of the democratic dream Brings us men in gas masks dancing while the shells burst The trouble with normal is it always gets worse
