"Swastika Eyes" as written by Andrew Colin Innes, Robert Clearie Young, Martin Duffy and Bobby Gillespie....
Your soul don't burn
You dark the sun you
Rain down fire on everyone
Scabs, police, government thieves
Venal psychic amputees
Parasitic you're syphilitic
Parasitic you're syphilitic

Swastika eyes
You got
Swastika eyes
You got
Swastika eyes, swastika eyes, swastika eyes

I'll vent my spleen I'll keep my dreams
My flesh, my bones, my soul, I own
My mind's a weapon immune from infection
Blood in my eyes, my vision is clear
Parasitic you're syphilitic
Parasitic you're syphilitic

Swastika eyes
You got
Swastika eyes
You got
Swastika eyes, swastika eyes, swastika eyes

I see your autosuggestion psychology
Elimination policy
A military industrial
Illusion of democracy

Swastika eyes
You got
Swastika eyes
You got
Swastika eyes, swastika eyes, swastika eyes

    General Commentit could be any scrupulous government construct, it's very ambiguous. i prefer it that way, otherwise it'd become way too dated.

    btw the live in japan version owns

    General Commenti read somewhere that this song was partially directed at then-us secretary of state madeline albright, and partially deriven from a hallucenation experience in which brian was screaming into a mirror.

    General CommentYep. It has political content, Bobby is saying democracy doesn't have to be democratic at all If your country is lead by assholes.

    General CommentActually boys and girls.
    the song is a rant against Isreal's government and their current policies. The title claims that the country has lost it's way from what it was originally formed from- a refuge for those who had escaped and suffered from the regime of the Nazis. Bobby is basically comparing Israel with their greatest enemy- the third Reich.

    General CommentAn absolutely fantastic song, one i like to play on my iPod when I need pumping up before a difficult meeting.

    I thought the Isreal idea was interesting. There is potentially a strong reference to the plagues of Egypt which the Isrealites brought down upon Egypt to gain their freedom and create Isreal.

    Dark the sun was the 10th plague.
    Parasites was the 3rd plague.
    Syphillis was the 6th plague.

    All very biblical anyway. Perhaps Bobby was watching Indiana Jones and the link there to the bible, and the Nazi's having their eyes burnt out inspired the song!
