Democracy - Live Additional Stanzas

See the main page for details about the locations
where these additional stanzas were sung

First we killed the Lord,then we stole the Blues
This guttered people always in the news
But who really gets to laugh behind the Black man's back
When he makes his little crack about the Jews?
Who really gets to profit?And who really gets to pay?
Who gets to ride the slavery ship right into Charleston Bay?

Democracy is coming to the USA

It ain't comin' to us European-style,
Concentration camp behind the smile;
It ain't comin' from the east
With its temporary feast
As Count Dracula comes strolling down the aisle.
And I know your baby's missing, but we sited her today
She was cleaning her machine-gun, she was waving her beret

Democracy is coming to the USA

From the church where the outcasts can hide from the Masque
Where the blood is dignified
Like the fingers on your hand, like an hourglass of sand
We can separate but not divide
And I know your baby's missing, but we sited her today
She was cleaning her machine-gun, she was waving her beret
