The Bogus Man

This song is by Brendan Perry and appears on the album Ark (2010).

I can see it in your eyes
The vacant stare, the empty lie
I can see it in your smile
I give you an inch, you take a mile

Politician
Model citizen
Politician
Blind ambition

I can see through your disguise
The red poppy, suit and ties
Poor mothers' sons will fight your wars
So rich men can reap the rewards

Politician
Model citizen
Politician
Cold ambition

Hail Father Ubu, here comes the Grand Guignol
Opportunist, you change your tune to suit the times
Sycophantic, cold-blooded, reptilian
Careering, profiteering, the party line

The party line

Hail Father Ubu, here comes the Grand Guignol
Manipulator, corrupt curator, of human lives
Sycophantic, cold-blooded, reptilian
Procrastinator, the fake orator, the bogus man

Written by:

Brendan Perry
