Blackwater

from by Street Eaters

about

Blackwater is the second song Street Eaters recorded, named for the abusive defense contractors that have made a well-paid name for themselves by killing lots of innocent people in Iraq and Afghanistan. This song is one of several the band has written about the complex nastiness of the two wars that the United States is still fighting, while we at home try to forget by busily distracting ourselves in seas of debt and cheap consumerism. Party.

lyrics

BLACKWATER

We've seen it ten times before
and after all, people are making money from the war

We've seen it a hundred times before
and all the wrong people are making money from this war

I read the news today
in the newspaper - sections B and C

I saw it yesterday
on the TV screen - but not anymore

It's still not over
