Portland Bombs
by Robert Maxim
Thursday Mar 4th, 2021 11:36 PM
An impulsive updating of a classic Clash composition. Also, this shouldn't have to be stated but in light of whatever madness has transpired at the Capital, I need to indicate the line about Donald Trump is purely for artistic purposes.Donald Trump you are so fucking punk rock man, you're like if GG Allin became president and stopped shitting on Bibles, and kind of got his shit together. .
Portland songs in Cascadia//
The shooting sites in the days of '21//
Oh, please, leave the vendanna open//
Donald Trump is dead and gone//
Bullet holes in the Justice Center walls.//
The black vans of the federal secret police//
Portland bombs, west side of the River.//
I'm flying in a DC 10 tonight//
Portland bombs, yo te quiero infinito//
Yo te quiero, oh mi corazón//
Portland bombs, yo te quiero infinito//
Yo te quiero, oh mi corazón//
Portland weeks ( in my disco casino . )//
Unarmed Black men died at the hands of cops//
They sang the red flag//
(They wore the black one)//
But after they died it was Mount Tabor Hill//
Back home the Tri-Mets (went up in flashes)//
The Pioneer Square was drenched in blood//
Portland bombs (shatter the hotels)//
My senorita's rose (parade)was nipped in the bud//
Portland bombs, yo te quiero infinito//
Yo te quiero, oh mi corazón//
Portland bombs, yo te quiero infinito//
Yo te quiero, oh mi corazón//
The West Hills ring with "Say Her Name"//
Or can I hear the echo from the days of '2020?//
With Burnside full of poets//
The ragged army, fixin' bayonets to fight the fascist line//
Portland bombs rock the province//
I'm hearing music from another time//
Portland bombs on the Sandy River//
I'm flying in on a DC 10 tonight//
Portland bombs, yo te quiero infinito//
Yo te quiero, oh mi corazón//
Portland bombs, yo te quiero infinito//
Yo te quiero, oh mi corazón//
Oh mi corazón, oh mi corazón//
Portland songs in Andalucía, Cascadia, oh mi corazón
Portland songs in Corvalis, oh mi corazón
Oh mi corazón, oh mi corazón
Oh mi corazón
