Call It Democracy


Padded with
power here they come
International loan sharks backed by the guns
Of market hungry military profiteers
Whose word is a swamp and whose brow is smeared
With the blood of the poor

Who rob life of
its quality
Who render rage a necessity
By turning countries into labor camps
Modern slavers in drag as champions of freedom
Sinister cynical instrument
Who makes the gun into a sacrament

The only
response to the deification
Of tyranny by so-called "developed nations"
Idolatry of ideology
North south east west
Kill the best and buy the rest

It’s just spend
a buck to make a buck
You don’t really give a flying fuck
About the people in misery
IMF dirty MF
Takes away everything it can get
Always making certain that there’s one thing left
Keep them on the hook with insupportable debt

See the
paid-off local bottom feeders
Passing themselves off as leaders
Kiss the ladies shake hands with the fellows
And it’s open for business like a cheap bordello
And they call it democracy

And they call
it democracy
And they call it democracy
And they call it democracy

See the loaded
eyes of the children too
Trying to make the best of it the way kids do
One day you’re going to rise from your habitual feast
To find yourself staring down the throat of the beast

They call the
revolution
IMF dirty MF
Takes away everything it can get
Always making certain that there’s one thing left
Keep them on the hook with insupportable debt
