Stiff Little Fingers - Suspect Device

Inflammable material is planted in my head
It's a suspect device that's left 2000 dead
Their solutions are our problems
They put up the wall
On each side time and prime us
And make sure we get fuck all
They play their games of power
They mark and cut the pack
They deal us to the bottom
But what do they put back?

Don't believe them
Don't believe them
Don't be bitten twice
you gotta suss, suss, suss, suss, suss out
Suss suspect device

They take away our freedom
In the name of liberty
Why don't they all just clear off

Why won't they let us be

They make us feel indebted
For saving us from hell
And then they put us through it

It's time the bastards fell

Don't believe them
Don't believe them
Question everything you're told

Just take a look around you

"Don't be bitten twice" is quite apt given the recent propaganda blaring from the hypnotists (TV) box. All this hullaballoo about the abducted soldiers, but the UK press have chosen NOT to put the whole shebang into historical context, no mention of the Shah, oil ar Britain's imperial past...

WE were encroaching on their territory, but Shrubs and Bliars SPIN the whole thing and make it look like they are the bad guys.


Our leaders are. Not that the media which they control will tell you otherwise

The TV is, I increasingly realise, at deeper and deeper levels - a tool for those at the top of the tree. Fictional news science fact(ion) reports aimed at diverting us away from crime perpetrated in our name.

On a lighter note, it looks like too much testosterone in the audience. Dude-fest indeed. Love the music though.

Dear Danny and Jim,
I agree with both of you, from the sobering to the lighter side.
Much appreciated.

This sniping with Iran has been going on since the Revolution of the late 70s, certainly, ever since the "golden boy" Shah was toppled.

I'll have to see about getting something from this band for Lana. She would love it.

Shows like this are always sausage-fests. I've been to a lot of shows where it's like 20 guys to every girl, and most of the girls are there with their boyfriends.
