The Ballad of Rio Tinto

Digging up Australia and moving it to China
To build your laptop chassis and a copper sheathed vagina
Buying up the Stone Age places for a couple of billion dollars
They’ll have a little money but a homeland that’s much smaller

So fire up all your furnaces your factories and fantasies
Leave the West to wallow in our pre-apocalyptic bankruptcy
I’m glad salvation’s come to manage our dependency
We’ve replaced those economics with some good old fashioned treachery

Shareholders get rich now and the guys all get a beer
Some spanking new diseases and a glittering career
Thanks to global industrials for inventions, plans and deeds
And selling us more products that no one really needs.
