Evil Empire - Joe Jackson

    There's a country where no one knows
    what's going on in the rest of the world
    There's a country where minds are closed
    with just a few asking questions

    Like what do their leaders say
    in sessions behind closed doors
    and if this is the perfect way
    why do we need these goddamn lies

    This doesn't go down too well
    "We give you everything and you throw it back
    Don't like it here you can go to hell
    You're either with or against us . . ."

    There's a country that's great and wide
    It's got the biggest of everything
    Try to attack it and you can't hide
    Don't say that you haven't been warned

    You can't hide in a gunman's mask
    or kill innocent folks and run
    But if you're good at it they might ask -
    come on over to the other side

    There's a country that's tired of war
    There's a country that's scared inside
    But the bank is open and you can draw
    for guns to fight in their backyard

    I could go on but what's the use
    You can't fight them with songs
    But think of this as just
    another tiny blow against the Empire

    Another blow against the Evil Empire

    Just another blow against the Evil Empire
