Be who you are
If it fits in the system
Say what you want
But you might die if they listen
They think in the politics of gasoline and torture

Please only talk to me in the dark
Please only talk to me in the dark

Write what you will
If you write in a prison
Sing how you feel
You might die if they listen
They think in the politics
Of rosaries and chains

And it's hard to know the right from the wrong
When the right is protecting the wrong

Be who you are
But not where there are people
Reality is taught
Right and wrong, there is no middle
We think in politics
Of money and ourselves

And it's hard to know the right from the wrong
When the right is protecting the wrong

    Song MeaningBased on this song's title and the lyrics I would guess this is about the South American nation of Chile during the years when it was controlled by the dictator Augusto Pinochet.

    General CommentProbably, but it kind of makes you think of modern American politics, doesn't it? I wish I were joking.
