Operation Eagle Lie / Black White – ASIAN DUB FOUNDATION

Young sisters and brothers dying from heart attacks
But how can we breathe when the beast is on our back CS gas in your lungs, eyes and your mouth
Just another police murder without without a doubt

Asian Dub Foundation 1998

Lies! Damn lies and statistics
Fitting up and stitching down at ballistics
The back of the van it ain’t used for seating
Just check through the window the youth them get a beating
Meet P.C P.R the designer policeman
Putting up a smokescreen with his multi coloured truncheon
Shake a few bad apples off the long arm of the law
But he knows and we know that it’s rotten to the core

Black man on a double yellow he’s a criminal
A racial attack, investigation minimal
You’ll always find us on the end of a baton
When the black meets the blue you know who’s getting spat on
Now I’m giving to you and I’m driving into you
The truth, no number crunching, it’s just your mind that we are mugging
ADF taking them on at I spy
Watching them watching us operation eagle lie

Unity is strength and strength is unity
IC1, IC2 and also IC3
All together we can defend the whole community
One people, all nations to reach their destiny
Before the devil man used to use the truncheon
To kill the black man is still his dream ambition
Now they have swat batons and CCTV
For unusual people just like you and me
Young sisters and brothers dying from heart attacks
But how can we breath when the beast is on our back
CS gas in your lungs, eyes and your mouth
Just another police murder without without a doubt
CPS is the piggies alibi
None of them ever prepared to be the fall guy
ADF taking them on at I spy


G and d here has united
Black and white here to show you how we’ve been delighted
The new generation since the mid nineties
Showing you how it’s done if you think you are a smartie
Telling you the truth since we spotted each other
We’d like to big up our elder sister and brother
Cos they are the legend and they are like no other
Trained by the greater legend – mother and father.

Now we think jump up lyrics are alright
But we’d like to broadcast a subject we know is not right
Look at us – but don’t look at us in disgust
You know the reality and it’s time to adjust
Think to yourself, don’t be foolish about it
Fix up your brain or you’ll be the target
A black man and a white woman living together
Face the facts all fascist perpetrators.

And as the world is getting smaller ans smaller
We can only be getting closer and closer
Building this community of sound
Celebrating the unity we’ve found
And we know this is the model to follow
For all the dub children of tomorrow
As they grow under shifting skies
We’ll see every nation in their eyes

We’ll see every nation in their eyes

Black and white here has united
We’re here to show you how we’ve been delighted
Black and white here has united
Building this community of sound.
