Government Planning

       6 months labour, a plan is made
       Drawing boards, impressive maps
       From this point it can't be stopped
       Plan will be executed

       On paper it all looks nice
       But paper is not reality
       You too can become a victim
       Of government planning

       "Sorry sir, but we have planned
       A highway through your living room"

       It's more than planning in fact
       A plan should be alterable
       But once a government's plan is made
       Only bribe can change it
       But that's another song

 

Unlike most other songs, this one is actually about politics, i.e. the apparently undemocratic ways of urban development. Around the time this was written there were many occasions where people were forced out of their houses for megalomanic projects (like a subway nobody asked for).
