Midnight OilWhen The Generals Talk

Up there on the platform He is speaking to the people The people are responding With clapping and a cheering But the meaning of the message Not revealed to those assembled They're taken for a ride Taken in his stride When the generals talk You better listen to him When the generals talk You better do what he say There's a rumour in the ranking Someone talking insurrection So the general has a purge Cause he wants to win elections With the certain satisfaction That the people are appeased Long live the revolution The general's very pleased Sitting on the fence both ears to the ground The fat cat's still push the thin cats around
