"Allow Them" as written by and Dicky/gittleman Barrett....
here little skunky huuh.
Allow them They just crawled out of the woodwork Allow them like The roach in the expensive suit and tie Allow them Failure has far too many fathers Allow them Succeed and you're an orphan 'til you die Now then no one is saying they deserve it Noone is saying so it What's more they've gotten more than they deserve Thats why its gotta go.
Allow them They've got a pitch and a proposal Allow them The runaround might be a better term for it Allow them They think that they've got us at their disposal Allow them Sit still this won't hurt a bit Now then no one is saying they deserve it Noone is saying so it What's more they've gotten more than they deserve Thats why its gotta go The day will come when there is nothing left to be afraid of Allow them They will destroy themselves if we allow them to.
It's such a cold,
cold whorey place There's more than rats running in the race And more than weasels calling in the plays These are cold,
cold whorey days Deception is an ax they wield There's wands to wave with every call they field This just is not us at all And if it is,
we've dropped the ball And we know who's not a carrier They hide behind a barrier That they'll destroy themselves somehow It's up to us if we allow They will destroy themselves if we allow them to.
Allow them Well now They're setting it in motion Unaware,
unaware where they are heading to right now Allow them We'll wait for the commotion That's bound to come it's Bound to come Bound to come if we allow Now then no one is saying they deserve it Noone is saying so it What's more they've gotten more than they deserve Thats why its gotta go The day will come when there is nothing left to be afraid of Allow them They will destroy themselves if we allow them to Yeah They will destroy themselves if we allow them to They gotta destroy themselves if we allow them to.
alright.

    General CommentI kinda see this song as as a satire about military interventention and nations (like Iraq, even though this song was written before then).

    Basically, if we (the West) allow them (the 3rd world), they'll destroy themselves. Overall though, it's not a noble task but rather a scheme to get money and we don't actually care of the plight of such peoples.

    I'm probably wrong though.

    General CommentI think it's just about politicians, media moguls, and businessmen... they way they deceive and cling to power, but in the end all the work they do will just end up destroying them all... that we should just let them do their thing and pick up the pieces afterwards...


    Either that or it's talking about the music industry and the jet-setters in it, how they're trying to "pitch" things to the kids, market and package bands... draw up these deals and eat off the backs of the musicians... and if you just let them do their thing they're just end up destroying each other anyways.
