Chorus:
Simplify, reduce, over-simplify
Simplify, reduce, over-simplify
Simplify, reduce, over-simplify
Simplify, reduce, over-simplify

What we call freedom in the North
Means our freedom to use you
And if you don't co-operate
We'll cut off your supply lines
But you'll be free to re-connect
If you beg our forgiveness
You say I over-simplify
Well yes, so did Albert Einstein

Chorus

There simply is no middle ground
Pentagon über alles
There never was a middle ground
That's the point I was making
There's no such place as middle ground
Left or Right of the equator

Chorus

What we call freedom in the North
Means our freedom to use you
And if you don't co-operate
We'll cut off your supply lines
But you'll be free to re-connect
If you beg our forgiveness
You say I over-simplify
Well yes, so did Albert Einstein
