Track 2 from Some Velvet Morning's debut long player from 2007, nominated for XFM's album of the year.


I know this ground beneath me
Is slipping away
I hear the message you're preaching
I try to escape

Oh forgive me, if I'm not myself
Oh forgive me, if I don't want your help

From experts and preachers,
From textbooks and teachers.
It's all propaganda
From tabloids and talkshows,
From billboards to god knows
It's just propaganda.

There's no time to count the civilian
There's work to be done.
For until these billions are trillions
Then war will go on.

Oh forgive me, if I deviate.
Oh forgive me, if I try to escape

The close up, the soundbite
The replay, the gunfight
It's all propaganda.
The tax cuts and think tanks,
The loopholes, the world bank..
Oh take a look around ya
It's all propaganda

Oh forgive me if I deviate
Oh forgive me if I try to escape

Away from this propaganda of
Illusion, confusion, delusion, intrusion
It's all propaganda.
From New York to Beijing
If we lose then they win.
From Big Macs to weight loss
From junkies to Kate Moss
From catwalks to blue jeans
From sweatshops to Gucci.
Oh take a look around ya It's all Propaganda.
