Lyrics and Music by Lisa Rein

This song is about the crazy idea that any kind of "democracy" the U.S. brought to Iraq could be worth the death of a single Iraqi person.
It's like someone saying: « Ok here's the plan:
– First, we bomb all your public water and power systems, then we don't actually rebuild them, so a lot of you are going to die off from that.
– Next, your brother and aunt die when us or the insurgents bomb them by mistake.
– Next, you get democracy! »
See!? It's a bargain!."
Cut off the power lines, my friend
Shut off the water too
The benefits will never end
When we're done bringing this to you

We're just improving
Improving
Improving, yeah
Improving
Improving, yeah..

Kill off your family one by one
But we'll give you some rights when we're all done -yeah
It's such a drag
But it's not us!
If you can tough it out
You'll make it.

Improving…
Improving, yeah
Improving,
Improving, yeah..


Improving,
Improving, yeah
Improving,
Improving, yeah..
