Propagandhi - ...And We Thought That Nation-States Were A Bad Idea Lyrics

...And We Thought That Nation-States Were a Bad Idea

"Publicly subsidized!
Privately profitable!" That's the anthem of the
upper-tier (the puppeteer untouchable).
We focus a moment, nod in approval and bury our head
back in the bar-codes of these neo-colonials while
our former nemesis (ah, the romance!
): the nation-state, now plays fund-raiser for a new
brand of power-concentrate.
Try again, but now we're confused- what is "class-war"?
Is this class war? Yes, this is class war.
And I'm just a kid- I can't believe that I gotta worry
about this kind of shit!

What a stupid world! Yeah,
this is just beautiful... absolutely no regard for
principle. What a stupid world.
(We're): 1) born 2) hired 3) disposed!
Where that job lands, everybody knows and you can tell
by the smile on the CEO's that the environmental restraints
are about to go. You can bet that laws will be set
to ensure the benefit of unrestricted labor-laws
(all kept in place by displaced government death squads).
They own us. They produce us.
They consume us. Can you fucking believe this?
What a stupid world. Fuck this bullshit display of
class-loyalties. The media and "our" leaders
wrap it all up in a flag- their fucking shit-rag. hooray!
