Blowback

Album: Imploding The Mirage (2020)
  • She's reachin' for her backpack
    Puts out a cigarette and gets on the bus
    She's sittin' on a secret
    She didn't ask for, no girl ever did
    But there's a whisper in her heartbeat
    And she can hear it just enough to keep her alive
    When she's breathing in the blowback
    There's nothing you can offer she ain't already tried

    But she's breathing in the blowback
    Born into poor white trash and always typecast
    But she's gonna break out, boy, you better know that
    It's just a matter of time she fights back
    (Breathing in the blowback)
    Breathing in the blowback

    She's sucking on a Tic Tac
    A good man is a mystery, she's looking for clues
    Whoa, you'd better check that, buddy
    'Cause the blacktop's burning up what's left of the fuse
    And she knows where she comes from
    Doesn't need you draggin' her all through it again
    It's like breathing in the blowback
    It's a hijack, now how much are you willing to spend?

    But she's breathing in the blowback
    Born into poor white trash and always typecast
    But she's gonna break out, boy, you better know that
    It's just a matter of time she fights back
    (Breathing in the blowback)
    Breathing in the blowback

    (Breathing in the blowback)
    Pinwheels spinning, roller skates, and red flags
    (Breathing in the blowback)
    But she's gonna breakout, boy, you better know that

    Can you cast out a demon?
    Can you wrangle the wind?
    Will you stay when she's breathing the blowback again? Writer/s: Brandon Flowers, Jonathan Rado, Ronald Dante Jr. Vannucci, Shawn Everett
