"Crystal Night" as written by and Peter Shelley....
I read the news, you saw the headlines
I know your secret, do you know mine?
Somebody said they're getting closer
I guess we don't have all that much time

They're lighting bonfires in the distance
You know something's in life will never change
So please don't say there was no warning
Just hold on tight, it's crystal night again, it's crystal night again

This lot won't stop with just your records
This lot won't stop with all your dirty books
This lot won't stop, don't need excuses
Don't like your lifestyle, don't like your looks

They're lighting bonfires in the distance
You know something's in life will never change
But, please don't say there was no warning
Just hold on tight, it's crystal night again, it's crystal night again

I read the news, you're in the headlines
You've sold your secret, will you tell mine?
I hear a shout, they're getting closer
I guess we don't have all that much time

This lot won't stop with just your records
This lot won't stop with all your dirty books
This lot won't stop, don't need excuses
Don't like your lifestyle, don't like your looks

So please don't say there was no warning
Just hold on tight, it's crystal night again, it's crystal night again

    General Comment*shudders* They're comparing book burning, censorship, banning, etc. to Kristalnacht, which was during the Holocaust, where Jewish people's shops were looted, burned and they were beaten up at best, at worst, sent to the concentration camps. The Buzzcocks are saying to smell the way the wind is blowing before it's too late.
