Asian Dub Foundation - The Round-Up lyrics

When you hear the march of the drum
You know they're gonna blot out the sun
When you hear the marching drum
You know your time soon come
Hammer coming down fast
Flag is flying full mast
shield your eyes from the blast
You know it won't be the last
it's a round-up It's a round up
Rifle butts through the door
Then you're kicked to the floor
Headlines screaming for more
Now You're a prisoner of war In the round-up It's a round-up
This is a countdown To the crackdown
Time to take a little trip downtown (It's a Round up)
get in the lineup there ain't no let-up
This is a bona fide government stick up (It's a round-up)
From the fit up Straight to the lock-up
Through the touchup and the drug up to the rough up It's just a start up
So watch it speed up It ain't enough to just put-up and shut-up DIS IS A ROUND-UP
Shining boots of leather
mind at the end of the tether charges cobbled together
The sentence is forever It's a round-up It's a round up
stone floor for a bed with a hood on the head helicopters overhead maybe I'm already dead
It's a round up This is a round up
when you hear dem march of the drum You know they're gonna blot out the sun
When you hear the marching drum You know your time soon come
Your time soon come
Dem come for de rasta and you say nothing
dem come for the muslims you say nothing
Dem come for the anti-globalists you say nothing
Dem even come for the liberals and you say nothing
dem com for you And who will speak for you ? Who will speak for you
This is a countdown To the crackdown Time to take a little trip downtown (It's a Round up)
get in the lineup there ain't no let-up This is a bona fide government stick up (It's a round-up) From the fit up Straight to the lock-up Through the touchup and the drug up to the rough up
It's just a start up So watch it speed up It ain't enough to just put-up and shut-up
DIS IS A ROUND-UP
