Con "Politics" l'obiettivo è chiaro: stavolta Tellier si schiera, nel suo solito stile, a fianco delle minoranze e degli oppressi di tutto il mondo, che siano i nativi americani (delirante il titolo della canzone in questione: "Ketchup Vs Genocide")
 "Ketchup Vs Genocide" è uno sfacciato synth-pop che affastella piacevolmente luoghi comuni sugli indiani d'America ("ma almeno mi permette di scegliere da che parte stare" dichiara Tellier nell'introduzione).

Steel horse over Navajos
Your gun against our tomahawk
We're the sons of the sacrifice
Kinda savage in the madman's eyes
Ain't no blue sky over red indians
And I know some day I will change it all
I'll build a heaven for my squaw

That's all right we've scalped granpa
Made hairdoes from the old times
Ketchup versus genocide
Kinda savage is the madman's eyes
Ain't no blue sky over dead indians
And I know some day I will change it all
I'll build a heaven for my squaw
You walked on us like on rugs
Dragged our spirit through the dirt
Ketchup versus genocide
Kinda savage in the madman's eyes

My squaw
Indian
Granpa
Indian
Heaven
Too high
