1991
Dance of the underclass
dance
You're trying to tell me capital has won at last
And anyone who's not convinced is just being shown the door
You're trying to tell me competition turns the wheels
Smart money never deals in welfare anymore
Survival of the fittest keeps the species strong
Change is always painful but it doesn't last too long
 
Excuse me, friend,
I think you could be wrong
When some of us are free to rise and some are free to fall,
All of us are under the dictatorship of capital
 
You're trying to tell me profit is the bottom line
Cancer is sometimes benign, it eats the cells that leave themselves defenseless
You're trying to tell me market forces must prevail
Some succeed while others fail
failure has to face the consequences
Weeding out the weak is mother nature's song
Existence is a game like chess, Monopoly or mahjong
 
Excuse me, friend,
I think you could be wrong
And it did not take me by surprise when the revolution from above began to cave in
Like a new town built by an architect, a concrete wasteland no one wants to live in
When some of us are free to rise and some are free to fall,
All of us are under the dictatorship of capital.
 
You're trying to tell me I'm living in democracy everyone is always free
To either live with ugliness or beauty
You're trying to tell me undermining revolutions
When they threaten institutions is a major power's democratic duty
With Batista, Marcos, Pinochet you got along
But not with the Sandinistas and not with the Vietcong
 
Excuse me, friend,
I think you got it wrong
Because when some of us are free to rise and some are free to fall,
All of us are under the dictatorship of capital
All of us are under the dictatorship of capital
All of us are under the dictatorship of capital
