Artist/Band: Indigo Girls
Lyrics for Song: Clampdown
Lyrics for Album: Rarities [2005]

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
