Power In The Blood

Penso che il titolo voglia evocare colui che, con la sua musica, seppe essere sempre un vero spauracchio per tutti i fascisti: "This machine kills fascists"...
Another psychopath in Iowa
loading up another round
While the NRA in Columbine
hunt Marilyn Manson down
Powder in the Pentagon
cruel letters in the mail
Some KKK white supremicist
cooking up a dose of race hate

Don't need no country
Don't fly no flag
Cut no slack for the union jack
Stars and stripes have got me jetlagged

Some baby in Afganistan
crying for its' mama now
while the BNP scare refugees
senseless up in Oldham town
Hypocrites in Downing Street
pouring petrol on the name
Satpal cries, asks Paddy
why do we always get the blame

Don't need no country
Don't fly no flag
Cut no slack for the union jack
Stars and stripes have got me jetlagged

Sing a song for the asylum seeker
for the frightened baby on some foreign beach
you'd better bang a gong and pray
they reach a safe harbour

Some mother in Jakarta
lays down her weary head
in some free trade zone compound
here they work you 'til you're dead
Hunger stalks the corridor
famine and disease
I seen the multinationals
walking hand in hand
with globalising marketeers

Don't need no country
Don't fly no flag
Cut no slack for the union jack
Stars and stripes have got me jetlagged
