"Clampdown" by The Clash Sung by Indigo Girls from Burning London tribute album
Taking off his turban, they said, is this man a Jew? 'Cause they're working for the clampdown They put up a poster saying we earn more than you! When we're working for the clampdown We will teach our twisted speech To the young believers Train our blue-eyed men To be unbelievers
The judge said five to ten, and I say double that again I'm not working for the clampdown No one born with a living soul Could be working for the clampdown Kick over the wall 'cause government's to fall How can you refuse it? Let fury have the hour, anger can be power Don't you know that you can use it?
Voices in your head are calling Stop wasting your time, there's nothing coming Only a fool would think someone could save you The men at the factory are old and cunning You don't owe nothing, so boy get running It's the best years of your life they want to steal
You grow up and you calm down 'Cause you're working for the clampdown And you start wearing the blue and brown 'Cause you're working for the clampdown So you got someone to boss around Does it make you feel big now And you drift until you brutalize You made your first kill now
I say, in these days of evil presidentes Working for the clampdown But maybe one or two have fully paid their dues Working for the clampdown Working for the clampdown Here you are now Working for the clampdown Here you are now Working for the clampdown Knock over the wall Working for the clampdown 'Cause government's to fall Working for the clampdown How can you refuse it? Working for the clampdown Hey! Get along now Working for the clampdown And I've given away no secrets
