INDIGO GIRLS


Clampdown Lyrics

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 young believers

Judge said "Five to ten", I said "Double that again
I'm not working for the clampdown"
Well, 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

The voices in your head are calling
Stop wasting your time, there's nothing coming
Only a fool would think someone could save you

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 the 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've made your first kill now

I say in these days of evil presidents
Working for the clampdown
I said lately one or two have fully paid their dues
Working for the clampdown

Working for the clampdown
Hey, you are now
Working for the clampdown
Hey, you are now

(Working for the clampdown)
Kick 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)
Giving away no secrets
