The Killers - Blowback Lyrics


[Verse 1]
She’s reaching for her backpack
Puts out a cigarette and gets on the bus
She’s seating on a secret she didn’t ask for
No girl ever did

[Verse 2]
There’s a whisper in her heartbeat
She can hear it just enough to keep her alive
But she’s breathing in the blowback
There’s nothing you can offer she ain’t already tried

[Chorus]
She’s breathing in the blowback
Born into poor white trash and always type-cast
But she’s gonna break out, boy you better know that
It’s just a matter of time
She fights back
Breathing in the blowback

[Verse 3]
She is sucking on a Tic-tac
A good man is a mystery, she’s looking for clues
Whoa, you better check that buddy
‘Cause the blacktop’s burning up what’s left of the fuse

[Verse 4]
She knows where she comes from
Doesn’t need you dragging her all through it again
It’s like breathing in the blowback
It’s a highjack, now how much sure are you willing to spend?

[Chorus]
She’s breathing in the blowback
Born into poor white trash and always type-cast
But she’s gonna break out, boy you better know that
It’s just a matter of time
She fights back
Breathing in the blowback

[Verse 5]
Pinwheels spinning, roller skates and red flags
Breathing in the blowback
She’s gonna break out, boy, you better know that

Can you cast out a demon?
Can you wrangle the wind?
Will you stay when she’s breathing the blowback again?
