What’s “semtex”? It’s here in a song by Roger Waters.

it's an explosive which has no odour and hence is very difficult to detect by them sniffing dogs and is not principally made in the czech village where it derives it's name but solely made there and no where else. it seemingly the main emploier of the village. I've heard talk that a smell is being added due to the terror able climate we live in at the moment

according to bartleby the name comes from Semt (the czech village in which it is principally manufactured) and EXplosive. <scratches chin>

Plastic explosive. I'm 99.9% certain this is what's meant in the song.
