my lyricsbox
You've got covert action Prejudice to extremes You've
got primitive cunning And high tech means You've got
eyes everywhere But people see through you
You've got good manipulators Got your store of dupes
You've got the idiot clamour Of your lobby groups You
like to play on fears But people see through you
You've got instant communication Instant data tabulation
You got the forces of occupation But you don't get
capitulation Cause people see through you
You've got the sounding brass You've got the triumph
of the will You do what you want to And we pay the
bills you hype the need for sacrifice but people see through you
You've got anti-matter language Contrived to conceal
You've been lying so long You don't know what's real
You're a figment of your own imagination And people see through you
You've got lip service tributaries You've got death
fetish mercenaries You hold the tickets to the cemeteries
You're big and bad and scary But people see through you
This song is from the album "World Of Wonders".
