Little River Band

Little River Band - Every Time I Turn Around

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 ill 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 ill 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 ill wind blows

Your life's in a databank at ASIO
