Force Publique Lizard on a rock In the midday sun Moves into darkness For protection Snakes in the grass In the land of the free Take me to the river Leave me in the sea Lord is there something that I should see Because the Belgians are paying me To cut their hands from the rubber tree You’re wasting your time with me. Cries in the night Through a canopy of trees Dew on the ground Drips from the leaves Shadow on the lake Crocodile tears Mountains of the moon The source of your smile Lord is there something that I should see Because the Belgians are paying me To cut their hands from the rubber tree You’re wasting your time with me.

Rainbow Indignation Rainbow nation Falling apart Can’t even sing the blues Red faces in the office Staring at their orange juice Yellow ballpoint pens click Against teeth as they concentrate On the green leaves in the water jug Wondering why they’re there 24 hour emergency spin doctors are waiting for you to sign along the dotted line blue skies through the window indignation at the slanted view of the presidential wardrobe violence with the pointed shoe 24 hour emergency spin doctors are waiting for you to sign along the dotted line and point out the whistle blower's boyfriend
