Bad Brains – I Against I

In the quest for the test to fulfill an achievement
Everybody’s only in it for themselves
When the fact of the matter
Is they just don’t care
To extend a helping hand to anyone else
So tell me why, did you have to lie
And try to make me all confused about the U.S.A.
When the fact of the matter is you just don’t care
To comprehend or understand a single word I say

I don’t want to have I go against I
I don’t want to have I go against I
Oh let me tell you

The same old story, no factual glory
I against I against I against I
And I say I don’t like it,
And I know I don’t want it
I against I against I against I
Almighty watching, almighty watching
I against I against I against I
And I say I don’t like it,
And I know I don’t want it
I against I against I against I

I said who’s gonna tell the youth about the drugs
About the drugs, mugs, bugs, and the police thugs
About the rotten stinkin’ rackets and the fantasies
Around the nation, around the nations
Oh baby what you gonna do
I tell you the truth is looking straight at you

I got a brass continental with a 300 Z,
Two color TV’s, now a video too
I got a rest home in Jamaica for my fantasty,
For my family
Around the nations
What you gonna do…

Prevod pesme

Sam protiv sebe

U potrazi za mogućnostima za ostvarenje uspeha
Svi samo na sebe misle
A zapravo
njima jednostavno ne pada na pamet
da pruže ruku bilo kome
Zato, reci mi zašto ste morali lagati
I truditi se da sve u vezi SAD pogrešno shvatim
Kad je prava istina da vam prosto ne pada na pamet
da razumete ili shvatite bilo šta što kažem

Ne želim da idem sam protiv sebe
Ne želim da idem sam protiv sebe
Oh slušajte me

Ista stara priča, bez stvarnog uspeha
Sam protiv sebe protiv sebe protiv sebe
I kažem da mi se to ne sviđa
I znam da to ne želim
Sam protiv sebe protiv sebe protiv sebe
Svemogući gleda, svemogući gleda
Sam protiv sebe protiv sebe protiv sebe
I kažem da mi se to ne sviđa
I znam da to ne želim
Sam protiv sebe protiv sebe protiv sebe

Pitao sam ko će reći istinu o drogama
O drogama, pljačkama, bubicama i pandurima siledžijama
O pokvarenim smrdljivim prevarama i fantazijama
nacije, nacija
Oh dušo, šta ćeš
Kažem ti da ti je istina pred nosom

Imam besna kola, 300Z
Dva TV-a u boji a sad i video
Imam vikendicu na Jamajci za svoje maštarije,
Za svoju porodicu,
Svih nacija
Šta ćeš sad…
