A.S.I.O. Lyrics by Redgum

 

A.S.I.O. by Redgum


White door, ninth floor, silent number, it's autumn on a cold avenue
Telex intercept, he sips a cigarette, warms up his V.D.U.
He gets his kicks from microchips, orders from the C.I.A.
Birobugs and lasers, casual surveillance, boardrooms and communiques
Don't use your phone and don't use mine
Don't speak treason, they're tapping the li-ine
Break-in, stake out, tell it in code
Everything is legal, anything goes
The nights gettin' darker and the I'll wind blows
Your life's in a databank at ASIO
Trained in the ghettos of the Lebanon, truncheons and an M16
Selling skag, a U.N. flag, now he's trading in securities
Darwin rendezvous, a B-52, trenchcoat slightly creased
From a coup in Asia, A U.S. Air Force major
Buying dirty laundry, swearin' it's for peace
Infiltration, we'll never know
Just like Chile but the bruises don't show-ow
Break-in, stake out, tell it in code
Everything is legal, anything goes
The nights get darker and the I'll wind blows
Your life's in a databank at ASIO
Spook behind the bar, unmarked car, rumour hangs like stale perfume
Flushing under beds, sniffin' out the Reds, nobody can feel immune
No names, no stress, no blame, no press
Clean when the dirty work's done
Allocate a budget, special branch thugs
Do it for the practice, do it for the fun
Midnight, flashlight, crash on the door
Rats on the table, blood on the floor-oor
Break-in, stake out, tell it in code
Everything is legal, anything goes
The nights get darker and the I'll wind blows
Your life's in a databank at ASIO
