    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
