Well you can tell by the way I move my feet
That I'm a genuine insurrectionary
It's a kinda nervous shuffle
That contrasts so well
With bolsavic bravado
And you can tell by the way I raise my hand
Not in a fist, but in question
Take out your manifestos
And then put them away
I implore you to ignore
Every word I just say
If my status as a figure
On a stage implies authority
I hope my caution and my age belies
My humility and will to take my rage
And try to turn myself into
A one man land slide!
Let's kick it off with a leafleting campaign
And follow up with some public meetings
Pressing flesh and kissing babies
As I smile and promise
Things are getting better
I am the party!
The apperatchik and the grey bureaocracy
I am the secret police
A consitiuency
That doesn't answer back!

I found these words
In my bedroom
Old magazines
And I found this voice
In my record collection
Distorting tapes kicked analysis awake
You found this song
But you didn't question
Swallowed the sleeve
But did not see my tongue
Inside my cheek

I am the polit-bureau
I am
The velvet revolution
It's a Budapest kick on a '56 and so!
Let's all go hand in hand
To the local
Polling station and
Make our own categories
Vote for ourselves!
