Rage Against The Machine - Hadda Be Playing On The Jukebox lyrics

> Lyricspedia > Lyrics Search > Rage Against The Machine > Hadda Be Playing On The Jukebox >

Had to be flashin´ like the daily double
Had to be playin´ on TV
Had to be loud mouthed on the comedy hour
Had to be announced over loud speakers

The CIA & Mafia are in cahoots

It had to be said in old ladies´ language
It had to be said in American headlines
Kennedy stretched & smiled & got double crossed by lowlife goons & agents
Rich bankers with criminal connections
Dope pushers in CIA working with dope pushers from Cuba working with
big time syndicate Tampa, Florida
It had to be said with a big mouth

It had to be moaned over factory foghorns
It had to be chattered on car radio news broadcasts
It had to be screamed in the kitchen
It had to be yelled in the basement where uncles were fighting

It had to be howled on the streets by newsboys to bus conductors
Had to be foghorned into New York harbor
Had to echo under hard hats
Had to turn up the volume in university ballrooms

It had to be written in library books, footnoted
It had to be in the headlines of the Times & Lamonte
It had to be barked over TV
It had to be heard in side alleys through ballroom doors

It had to be played on wire services
Had to be bells ringin´
Comedians stopped dead in the middle of a joke in Las Vegas

Had to be FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover & Frank Costello syndicate
mouthpiece meeting in Central Park, New York together weekends,
reported Time magazine

It had to be the Mafia & the CIA together starting war on Cuba,
Bay of Pigs & poison assassination headlines

Had to be dope cops in the Mafia
Who sold all their heroin in America

Had to be the FBI & organized crime working together
in cahoots "against the commies"

It had to be ringing on multinational cash registers
World-wide laundry for organized criminal money

It had to be the CIA & the Mafia & the FBI together
Bigger than Nixon
And bigger than war

Had to be a gorged throat full of murder
It had to be a mouth & ass, a solid mass of rage
Had to be a red hot head
A scream in the back of the throat

Had to be in Kissenger´s brain
Had to be in Rockefellers´ mouth
Had to be the central intelligence, the family, "our thing", the agency Mafia
One big set of gangs working together in cahoots

Hitmen
Murderers everywhere
Outraged on the make
Secret, drunk, brutal, dirty, & rich

On top of a slag heap of prisons
Industrial cancer
Plutonium smog
Garbage cities

Grandmas´ bed sores
Fathers´ resentments

Had to be the rulers
Wanted law & order
And they got rich on wanting protection for the status quo

Wanted junkies!
Wanted Attica!
Wanted Kent State!
Wanted war in Indochina!

It had to be the CIA & the Mafia & the FBI

Multinational capitalists
Strong armed squads
Private detective agencies for the "oh so very rich"
And their armies, their navies, & air force bombing planes

It had to be capitalism
The vortex of this rage
This competition
Man to man

The horses head in a capitalists´ bed
The Cubans´ turf, it is competions
Hitmen & Gang wars across oceans

Bombing Cambodia settled the score
With White House pots & pans

A warning to Mediterranean governments

The secret police have braced for decades

The NKVD & CIA keep each other´s secrets
The OGBU & DIA never hit their own
The KGB & the FBI..

One mind, Brute force, & full of money
One mind, Brute force, & full of money
One mind, Brute force, & full of money
One mind, Brute force, & full of money
One mind, Brute force, & full of money
and full of money, nd full of money..

They had to be rich, They had to be powerful
They had to murder an Indonesia 500,000!
They had to murder an Indochina 2,000,000!
Had to murder in Czechoslovakia!
Had to murder in Chile!
Had to murder in Russia!

And had to murder in America!
