king of pain

There’s a little black spot on the sun today
It’s the same old thing as yesterday
There’s a black hat caught in a high tree top
There’s a flag pole rag and the wind won’t stop

I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running round my brain
I guess I’m always hoping that you’ll end this reign
But it’s my destiny to be the king of pain

There’s a little black spot on the sun today
That’s my soul up there
It’s the same old thing as yesterday
That’s my soul up there
There’s a black hat caught in a high tree top
That’s my soul up there
There’s a flag pole rag and the wind wont stop
That’s my soul up there

I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running round my brain
I guess I’m always hoping that you’ll end this reign
But it’s my destiny to be the king of pain

There’s a fossil that’s trapped in a high cliff wall
That’s my soul up there
There’s a dead salmon frozen in a waterfall
That’s my soul up there
There’s a blue whale beached by a springtides ebb
That’s my soul up there
There’s a butterfly trapped in a spider’s web
That’s my soul up there

I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running round my brain
I guess I’m always hoping that you’ll end this reign
But it’s my destiny to be the king of pain

There’s a king on a throne with his eyes torn out
There’s a blind man looking for a shadow of doubt
There’s a rich man sleeping on a golden bed
There’s a skeleton choking on a crust of bread

King of pain

There’s a red fox thorn by a huntsman’s pack
That’s my soul up there
There’s a black winged gull with a broken back
That’s my soul up there
There’s a little black spot on the sun today
It’s the same old thing as yesterday

I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
With the world turning circles running round my brain
I guess I’m always hoping that you’ll end this reign
But it’s my destiny to be the king of pain

King of pain
King of pain
King of pain
I’ll always be king of pain
I’ll always be king of pain
I’ll always be king of pain…

Até que enfim vejo uma medida punindo os criminosos (sim, transformar em pó o dinheiro de aposentadoria e o emprego de pessoas inocentes é crime na minha concepção) pela crise do mercado (ou circo) financeiro:

A lógica dessa operação é objetiva. Uma empresa é um ativo nacional e vale mais em operação do que fechada. Funcionando, além dos ativos a GM tem marca, tecnologia, operação de vendas, de marketing, pessoal estruturado, sistemas de financiamento de vendas, relação com subsidiárias em outros países. Fechada, será apenas um amontoado de imóveis e equipamentos.

Por isso preserva-se a empresa, parte dos empregos, dos fornecedores, o know how acumulado, e penalizam-se apenas os acionistas e os gestores.

Se bem que tem certas coisas que não mudam nunca:

Além disso, os governos dos EUA e do Canadá puderam condicionar sua ajuda à redução de uma série de custos, incluindo os trabalhistas. Houve negociação que transferiu parte das ações aos sindicatos em troca de abrir mão de alguns direitos.
