The Great Wall lyrics

Great Wall of China
It's so big, it's seen from outer space
Put there to keep starving neighbors
Behind the timeless gates

So what's changed today?
Empires hoard more than they need
And peasants threaten our comfort

We'll build a great wall around our power
Build a great wall around our power

Bankrupt L.A.'s streetcar line
So people pay more to drive
Plant strategic freeways
Divide neighborhoods by color lines

We'd rather pay for riot squads
Than pump the ghetto back to life
We let your schools decay on purpose

To build a great wall around the power
Build a great wall around the power

Warlords in gray suits
Take a different route to work each day
Second-hand, green berets
Form the companies' private armies

We'll take all your gold
But won't teach reading or feed your poor
The League of Gentleman
Would rather feed guns to puppet dictators

There's too many people in your world
And refugees are expensive
When they trickled down onto our soil
We hunt them and arrest them

Classify them insane
Put them back on the next plane
To the waiting arms
Of the same death squads they fled, yeah

Built a great wall around the power
Worldwide great wall around the power
Economic great wall around the power

Give us your poor
Your tired and your weak
We'll send 'em right back
To their certain death
