Protest day: Right from the start

Right from the start
It was there
The flick knife
The teddy boys leer
Who were they working for
Had the gears in their head
Gone outlaw
Right from the beginning
Of the dream
The violence slowly crept in
Dance fights on Saturday nights
Let the law in
The law began to cut and control
To investigate and to parole
Only it was not only the flick knife few
Only it was a whole generation
With the blues
And the stabbing carried on
With Manson
And everyone
And it let the law back in
To legalise and to grin
At the music lovers
They took
Under lock and key
So goodbye to the music we knew
As the institutions grew
With their blankets
Over your sleeping head
And their warm milk
To put you to bed
And it was slowly pushed back
In its hole
And capped and machined
And industrialised
And now it squeaks out through a tap
Into a music warehouse
Where a hat
Sits drinking a cup of tea
And talking madly
To a rabbit
