Iggy Pop – Mr. Dynamite lyrics

They call me Mr. Dynamite
I blow things up in black and white
An end to your charade
A button I have made must be pushed

There is no reason for the sky
When I'm on fire with your lies
So if I can win this fight
Then call me Mr. Dynamite

So here we stand
Both you and I
We're face to face
But eye to eye?
Tomorrow you may change
And I would be betrayed, my friend...

Oh mommy mommy mommy
Do you remember Mr. Dynamite?
You know that guy from down the block
He blew things up in black and white

Yesterday he changed
Today he is betrayed
In the street
On the ground
The neighbors gather 'round

Poor Mr. Dynamite

    This is what I think it's about. Approximately a year before this record was released; there was a show on "60 Minutes" about two men who worked for the military. They were assigned to launch nuclear missiles if asked (God Forbid). If one man was acting crazy, his partner was required to kill him. I always liked this song, but never was able to find information about its meaning; it could be just nonsense.
