talkin’ democracy blues … … …
the platitudes come fast and thick,

when gone is the carrot what remains is the stick,


when a government shuts its ears to what the people need,

puffed up on hubris and profiting from greed,


democracy dies a little each day,

what more can i say,


cos’ I’m talking democracy blues,

step out of your comfort zone,

and take a stroll in the other half’s shoes,


maybe you’ll understand a bit better then,

that it ain’t all just about being zen,


it’s about bread and water and jobs for all,

heed the people’s call or be prepared to take a nasty fall,


cos’ I’m talking democracy blues,

so get your feet out of your thousand buck shoes … … …
