"IMEC Rock" sheds insight into
aspects of the antidemocratic processes of IMEC (the Industrial-Military-Executive
Complex) and alludes to some of the personal and collective costs.
"BADWINDS: Ballad of An American
Heresy" discusses the IMEC agenda of the so called "Neo-cons" who use the
IMEC framework to forward their view of what's right for America and the world.
A related song,"HEY, MR.
PRESIDENT," concerns recent escalations of domestic spying on U.S. citizens and
related issues. We intended this to be the next song in the CD but deferred that placement
for technical reasons at the time of recording. BuyBack will now post the lyrics on
www.buybackband.com and intends to post the MP3 version prior to July 2008.
Although thematically distinct from the other
songs, "THEN & FOREVER" came into the project when internationally
recognized vocalist Debra Marino (formerly Debbie Lewis of Jambalaya fame) graciously
appeared in studio to support BuyBack in our first project. This recording is the result
of that kindness. We are most grateful!
