The Big Illusion

This song is by Trust and appears on the album Savage (1981).

La Grande Illusion
(Bonvoisin, Krief, Glespen, Platt)

You who speak of new-found liberty
Proud of the money that grows on your famiy tree
Spitting hatred on the lowly working man
Building ghettos that you call new housing plans
You want my vote to reassure
You want my vote to make me more secure

To you I'm just a ballot
That is dropped into a box
Just another ballot
That is dropped into a box

Surrounded by the impotent and self-satisfied
You promise us contentment in record time
The old who can't decide because they're not young
Tired and wasted, sick of being pushed around
You want my vote to maintain the status quo
You want me to vote for my freedom I know

To you I'm just a ballot
That is dropped into a box
Just another ballot
That is dropped into a box

Push them away
You're gonna vote!
So vote
Vote, vote, vote, vote
Vote, vote, vote, vote!

My bulldozer is the symbol of the angry youth
That refuses all your deals and twisted truths
I want to speak of those whom you victimize
Vulgar pawns in a game that wins no prize
For us you have so much respect
Tomorrow we're the ones who'll vote
To elect a perfect remedy
To give us work and prosperity

So vote, vote, vote, vote
Vote, vote, vote, vote!

To you I'm just a ballot
That is dropped into a box
Just another ballot
That is dropped into a box

Vote, vote, vote, vote
Vote, vote, vote, vote

To you I'm just a ballot
That is dropped into a box
To you I'm just a ballot
That is dropped into a box

Vote, vote, vote, vote
Vote, vote, vote, vote!

For us you have so much respect
Tomorrow we're the ones who'll vote
To elect a perfect remedy
Who'll chose the right to be free

To you I'm just a ballot
That is dropped into a box
Use your vote!
