Asian Dub Foundation — Blowback lyrics

Album: Enemy Of The Enemy (2003)

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' thru a blow back
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 blowback
From ally to madman from client to badman
From Gommorah to Sadaam 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 of
Government gloves off
Flick of the wrist
Summary justice
Feel the kiss of the you. S. Fist
Hollywood, Hollywood tinsel this
Fanning the flames of fanatical fervour
One bad turn always deserves another
Covert and subvert and secret operation
Still sufferin the conequence of active inaction
Tunnelling through mountains building networks of caves
$40 billion dollars for 40, 000 graves
Collateral damage and friendly fire
Talking the talk of the undercover empire
(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 the pipe line and oil 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 endtime
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
