"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
