banana republic lyrics – boomtown rats

chorus:
banana republic
septic isle
screaming in the suffering sea
it sounds like crying (crying, crying)
everywhere i go, oh yeah
everywhere i see
the black and blue uniforms
police and priests

and i wonder do you wonder
while you’re sleeping with your wh*r*
that sharing beds with history
is like a-licking running sores
forty shades of green yeah
sixty shades of red
heroes going cheap these days
price; a bullet in the head

banana republic
septic isle
suffer in the screaming sea
it sounds like dying (dying, dying)
everywhere i go, oh yeah
everywhere i see
the black and blue uniforms
police and priests

take your hand and lead you
up a garden path
let me stand aside here
and watch you p*ss
striking up a soldier’s song
i know that tune
it begs too many questions
and answers too

banana republic
septic isle
suffer in the screaming sea
it sounds like dying (dying, dying)
everywhere i go, oh yeah
everywhere i see
the black and blue uniforms
police and priests

the purple and the pinstripe
mutely shake their heads
a silense shrieking volumes
a violence worse than they condemn
stab you in the back yeah
laughing in your face
glad to see the place again
it’s a pity nothing’s changed

banana republic
septic isle
suffer in the screaming sea
it sounds like dying
everywhere i go
everywhere i see
the black and blue uniforms
police and priests
