Song Meaning
Verse 1
And the first commandment reads
That human flesh and blood
Is sacred
Until there is no more food
Verse 2
The break of day has come
I see the cracks have just begun
To line the walls
Line the walls
I want to see the little girls and boys
Destroy their toys
And line the walls
Line the walls
Verse 3
What a fate for little girls
British boys' minds in a whirl
Tell you things that'll make your curls
Straighten out
Straighten out
Straighten out
Straighten out
Verse 4
For twenty years or more
Just tell me what you're living for
So tell me now
Tell me now
Frustrated intellect
That government capitulation
Follows now
Follows now
Verse 5
What a fate for little girls
British boys' minds in a whirl
Tell you things that'll make your curls
Straighten out
Straighten out
Straighten out
Straighten out
Verse 6
The break of day has come
I see the cracks have just begun
To line the walls
Line the walls
I want to see the little girls and boys
Destroy their toys
And line the walls
Line the walls
Verse 7
What a fate for little girls
British boys' minds in a whirl
Tell you things that'll make your curls
Straighten out
Straighten out
Straighten out
Straighten out
Verse 8
Straighten out
