Blowback

Another song that started out being about something completely different—in this case, office politics—and became warped and mutated into another angry screed by the heavy gravity of the mighty gas giant that was the Drogues. Blowback is obviously (maybe too obviously) a reference to the book by Chalmers Johnson.

Stretched to the breaking point—and let go
Redefining what it means—to not know
Your closed-door policies—will not show
Stretched to the breaking point—and let go

Stretched to the breaking point
We’re suffering the blowback

The price of empire—we can’t know
From the frying pan to the fire—and let go
Side effect of our desire—it can’t show
The price of empire—we don’t know

Stretched to the breaking point
We’re suffering the blowback

The world turns—the worm turns
You had your turn—it’s not your turn
The world turns—the worm turns
It’s not your turn—it’s not your turn

We’re suffering the blowback
We’re suffering the blowback
