Recorded October 2016 at home in The Hague, and at the Haags Pop Centrum in The Hague
Well I'm an inhabitant
of the world outside yours
but it really does matter to me
who'll be the one you'll vote for

will you choose profit or peace
will you choose people or war
will you allow the next government
to destroy the planet we're fighting for

I'm not an American
but if I were
I'd surely vote for Jill

will you choose profit or peace
will you choose people or war
will you allow the next president
to destroy the planet we're fighting for
will you choose people or war

I'm no interventionist
unlike your government (and mine)
so I won't tell you who to vote for
what to believe or whose profits you should fight and die for

will you choose profit or peace
will you choose people or war
will you allow the next president
destroy the planet we're fighting for
will you choose people or war

I'm not an American
but if I were
I'd surely vote for Jill
