Liner Notes: 

Another of those songs where the title popped into my head and everything else pretty much wrote itself...

Lyrics: 

You say you've got a mandate now to carry out your plan
I say that it's the worst plan made since history began
You like causing chaos 'cause you make a tidy sum
Just ignore the fact that everyone around you thinks you're dumb

You started out on top and you were raised as a conniver
Democracy is dead with no-one able to revive her
We got Bozo the Clown when we voted for MacGuyver
Expert system, idiot driver

You didn't get to where you are by playing fair and square
And all I feel when I see you is hopeless, bleak despair
It doesn't matter how much everybody rants and rails
Everything we built together you'll put up for sale

You started out on top and you were raised as a conniver
Democracy is dead with no-one able to revive her
We got Bozo the Clown when we voted for MacGuyver
Expert system, idiot driver

But now the world is watching every action that you take
It won't be long before they see your competence is fake
The clown car that you're driving is about to lose its wheels
And that's when you'll discover culpability is real

You started out on top and you were raised as a conniver
Democracy is dead with no-one able to revive her
We got Bozo the Clown when we voted for MacGuyver
Expert system, idiot driver

the guitar solos are killer, the synths are to die for and your voice is chill, cool, whispery and orgasmic, how do you do that? I mean, what more can I say? Oh, I love songs that write themselves, it makes me wonder if we're writing them or if some dark angel is just using us as tools for his orchestrations

Sting is here! Wow. Amazing sounds, energy and message. I think both of our country's are f***'d. Sad

Great work here.
Lovely headphone mix, as usual.
I like the bleepy bloopy synth lines.
I get where you are going with the lyrics, but as I constantly say to a friend of mine, how is this any different than the rest of history?
Seems like business as usual to me, unfortunately.
Ah well, a giant rock will hit the planet and we'll all be gone soon enough.
I take some comfort in that.

im with fuzzy on the politics. business as usual, stooge leaders. if you really want to see democracy dying, take a look at what is happening in hong kong, where the police have enlisted triad members to attack and assault protesters on their way home. i like the music though, and your bowie esque vocals.

That opening guitar really grabs a listener.
Good writing throughout.
