CHINA O CHINA

You affect democracy
We effect democracy
You bear no criticism
We bare our soul
You prey on the weak
We pray for the weak
You exorcise freedom
We exercise freedom
You complement injustice
We compliment justice
You faze human rights
We phase in human rights
You pair wrong with right
We pare wrong from right
You censor free speech
We censure limited speech
You break laws
We brake to prevent illegality


You go left
We go right
You tell lies
We tell truths
You hate religion
We love religion
You talk crooked
We talk straight
You adore money
We adore God
You act violently
We act non-violently
You promote autocracy
We promote democracy
You restrain free speech
We restore free speech
Your power grow out of the barrel of a gun
Our power grows from the legitimacy of our claim


China O China
Give up your sins
And save your skins
We pray for your soul
Abandon your goal
Give up your wrath
Follow our path
So we can get along
And be true friends life long
