Bruce Cockburn lyrics - Call it democracy



Lyrics:

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 labour 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
   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
