The bourgeois conception of democracy
Is limited to the political life
Party politics, parliamentary or not
The representatives will act beyond their voter's thoughts

And the deciding opposition under capitalism
Is between the class who owns, and those who create
But the government embraces the business élite
They've made a sworn pact concerning you and me

I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND
WHY OUR TERMS OF LIVING
IS DICTATED BY THEIR HANDS
I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND
WHY OUR HOPES AND DREAMS
MUST ALWAYS GO DOWN THE DRAIN

We've gotta render the work its right value
As a source to human dignity
The goods and the methods of production
Must be adapted to human needs and circulation of nature

I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND…
