about

Originally called Static for obvious reasons and because of the last line in Get Up and Go. A friend of mine started referring to it as Machine Gun Rodeo, clearly a much more evocative and unusual title. The irony is that of all the lines in the song, this was the one I wasn't entirely happy with and spent some time trying to replace it until finally coming to terms with it.

Clearly some sort of deterioration in world affairs in happening.

lyrics

Wikiloops Jam 6909

The trash can's stuffed with all of your dough
The trash can's stuffed with all of your dough
The emperor is naked
And the queen can only fake it
It's a well kept secret
But everybody knows
The trash can's stuffed with all of your dough

From the North Atlantic
The calls are growing frantic
From the North Altantic
The calls are growing frantic

From the North Altantic
The calls are growing frantic
From the North North North

The postcard's of a machine gun rodeo
The postcard's of a machine gun rodeo
The blueprint's in the attic
Favoured by fanatics
You try and keep it secret
But everybody knows
The postcard's of a machine gun rodeo``

You hide it well but still it's gonna show
You hide it well but still it's gonna show
The powder's in the packet
Of the tyrant's smoking jacket
It's a tight lipped secret
But everybody knows
You hide it well but still it shows

The pressure is volcanic
All you get is static
