Blowback Lyrics

Step back from the blow back
Step back from the blow back
Step back from the blow back

Plans that were hatched with the strings still attached
See there's always a catch when you're livin' through a blowback
You're wonderin' why you need places to hide
Keep one eye to the sky when you're waiting for the blowback

Sink into the mud watch out for the scud
'Cos oil is thicker than blood in the world of the blowback
From ally to madman, from client to badman
From Gomorrah to Saddam starring in the blowback

Invisible sins, invisible kings
The shit we're in, gonna drown in the spin
Permanent warfare, burning up welfare
Add up, add up, their share of the hardware

Rights disposed off, government gloves off
Flick of the wrist, summary justice
Feel the kiss of the U.S. fist
Hollywood, Hollywood tinsel this

Fanning the flames of fanatical fervor
One bad turn always deserves another
Covert and subvert and secret operation
Still sufferin' the consequence of active inaction

Tunneling through mountains, building networks of caves
Forty million dollars for forty thousand graves
Collateral damage and friendly fire
Talking the talk of the undercover empire

Live and direct from the undercover empire
Live and direct from the undercover empire
Live and direct, live and direct
Live and direct from the undercover empire

What's the rules of engagement?
What's the price of containment?
Can we come to an arrangement?
Make a buck off the blowback

They don't know about this flow
Watch your pipe line not your show
It's McWorld and fries to go
Starring in the blowback

One sided triangle
Squarin' the circle
Pentagonal diagonal
Caught out in the blowback

Is it really all over?
Are we living in end time?
Don't we know that there's no time?
Step back from the blowback

Control, we now have air superiority
Their only plane was the one we sold them last week
As leaflets, food parcels explode into nails
Bush chokes on a pretzel and Clinton exhales

Sayin' cool down India, cool down Pakistan
Here comes your new billion dollar air squadron
Laying down a pipeline through Kazakstan
This ends this broadcast live from absurdistan

Live and direct from London, absurdistan
Live and direct from London, absurdistan
Step back from the, step back, step back from the blow, blowback
Step back pushin', step back pushin'
Step back pushin', from the blowback
