" Here is the English translation of the song, translated by me (but replacing the curse words because I am not sure if I’m allowed to write them on this site)

Intro (Ardy):
Planet of the apes
Planet of the apes
Mecca of ignorance
And focus point of hate
Money, power, fame
The biggest plagues of this world
The majority is hypnotized and messed up in the brain
But they don’t see it
Blindfolded, blindfolded, do they prefer to live blind?
Sanageyama - lost clearance
Immune to truth
Yeah… yeah… yeah…

Main part (Taddl):
Good vibes only is written across my chest, I mean it
But in a world like this it’s so damn hard
Because so much here freaks me up (� - 2)
I get so damn, damn upset
When I see that cash determines how the beings live
And we take and take and take and take
And nobody ever thinks about giving
Why!? Why!? Please tell me the reason!
Do I see more than the others? Do I have ...more - Martin_Canine

18 This is America - Childish Gambino
19 How Much a Dollar Cost - Kendrick Lamar
20 M.A.A.D City - Kendrick Lamar

I admit that I like this song better than many old school hip-hop classics. - JoLeKosovo
