No Shelter


“No Shelter” is a single by Rage Against the Machine that appeared in the soundtrack to the 1998 Godzilla movie, and was the bonus track of the Australian release of their album The Battle of Los Angeles.

It is about how the mass media distracts the public from more important issues in the world and manipulates people’s minds. The placement of this song in the soundtrack is especially ironic, considering how it attacks movies like Godzilla, calling it “pure motherfucking filler” and part of the overall problem the song points out.

Godzilla


"No Shelter" è un singolo dei Rage Against the Machine che compariva nella colonna sonora del film Godzilla, ed è stato inserito come bonus track nell'edizione australiana dell'album The Battle of Los Angeles.

Il tema è della canzone sono i media che distraggono il pubblico da questioni più importanti, manipolando l'opinione pubblica. La guerra, il punto di vista americano, vengono venduti come prodotti e fanno parte dell'industria dello spettacolo. Il fatto che la canzone faccia parte della colonna sonora di un blockbuster è particolarmente ironico dato che lo stesso Godzilla viene attaccato nella canzone dove viene chiamato "un puro tappabuchi del cazzo" e parte del problema a cui la canzone si riferisce.
The main attraction, distraction
Got ya number than number than numb
Empty ya pockets son, they got you thinkin' that
What ya need is what they selling
Make you think that buying is rebelling
From the theaters to malls on every shore
Tha thin line between entertainment and war
The frontline is everywhere, there be No Shelter here!
Spielberg, the nightmare works so push it far
Amistad was a whip, the truth was feathered and tarred
Memory erased, burned and scarred...
Trade in ya history for a VCR
Cinema, simulated life, ill drama
Fourth Reich culture, Americana
Chained to the dream they got ya searchin' for
Tha thin line between entertainment and war

There be No Shelter here!! (Tha frontline is everywhere...)
There be No Shelter here!! (Tha frontline is everywhere...)
There be No Shelter here!! (Tha frontline is everywhere...)
There be No Shelter here!! (Tha frontline is everywhere...)

Hospitals not profit full
The market bulls got pockets full
To advertise some hip disguise
View tha world from American eyes
Tha poor adore keep fiendin' for more
Tha thin line between entertainment and war
They fix the need, develop the taste
Buy their products or get laid to waste
Coca-Cola is back in the veins of Saigon
And Rambo too, he's got a dope pair of Nikes on
And Godzilla, pure muthafuckin FILLER
To keep ya eyes off the real killer...
Cinema, simulated life, ill drama
Fourth Reich culture, Americana
Chained to the dream they got ya searchin' for
Tha thin line between entertainment and war

There be No Shelter here!! (Tha frontline is everywhere...)
There be No Shelter here!! (Tha frontline is everywhere...)
There be No Shelter here!! (Tha frontline is everywhere...)
There be No Shelter here!! (Tha frontline is everywhere...)

American eyes, American eyes....
View the world from American eyes...
Bury the past, rob us blind...
And leave nothing behind...

American eyes, American eyes....
View the world from American eyes...
Bury the past, rob us blind...
And leave nothing behind...

Just stare!
Just stare!
Just stare!
Just stare!
Relive the nightmare!
