The Clash – Straight to Hell
The hidden subtext?
So, I got an idea. It’s pretty simple really, but that makes it no less effective. Everybody, just blame everybody. Make people unavailable for hearings. If you can’t clean the beaches, buy the beaches. We’ll all trade off, sometimes it’ll be BP’s fault, sometimes Halliburton or Transocean and just for kicks, every once in awhile we’ll let Feinberg give an interview so he can take the heat off all of us, you know, to recharge. Blowout preventers, who could’ve stopped what and when…really, just make it as complicated as possible and don’t forget Nalco, sometimes it’ll be Nalco’s turn…but just keep it all going. Accept no blame clearly for anything, ever. Right, complicated, ya know? Once the people stop paying attention, then -in reality- it ceases to exist and we got an anniversary coming, so okay, so who’s gonna take the brunt on the anniversary?
Great idea…on April 20th, we’ll give Feinberg another raise. Double it, why not? Oh c’mon, we don’t need to ask, we don’t ask Feinberg anything, we tell him. Hell, we drag this out long enough boys, and climate change’ll render the whole thing a moot point, anyway.
Okay…good then, cheers!
Have a nice day.
