Stereolab Gus the Mynah Bird Lyrics

A military regime in democratic disguise
That lies in all impunity
That takes apart what it took
People years to build
Public institutions
That promised a decent life

Self-determination should be a fact
Not essentially a right

There are the lobbies
Insurance companies
Who want to change the whole country
Into a vast commercial counter
For the pure consumer
The promise to give the generals a better place

Self-determination should be fact
In the face of corruption
