"Fingers In The Factories" as written by Thomas Michael Smith, Christopher Dominic Urbanowicz, Russell Leetch and Edward Owen Lay....
Easy said and easy done
Is how we like this
Keep us in our place
You're the night, the dirty night, that keeps us going
Nothing left to waste
Pull a sentence from your lips to keep them quiet
What they want to hear
Ah you're the night, the dirty night that keeps us going
No-one left to fear

As the sun goes down on a broken town
And the fingers bleed in the factories
Come on out tonight, come and see the side
Of the ones you love and the ones in love
And you

Keep with me, keep with me, keep with me, keep with me

Smile for once, for a moment it makes us happy
What we need is here
You're the night, the dirty night, you make us angry
There's everything to fear

As the sun goes down on a broken town
And the fingers bleed in the factories
Come on out tonight, come and see the side
Of the ones you love and the ones in love
And you

Keep with me, keep with me, keep with me, keep with me

As the sun goes down on a broken town
And the fingers bleed in the factories
Come on out tonight, come and see the side
Of the ones you love and the ones in love
And you

Keep with me, keep with me, keep with me, keep with me
Keep with me, keep with me, keep with me, keep with me

    General CommentThe voice of this song is interesting. . . it seems that the singer is speaking for the 'proletariat', and the listener is "the dirty night. . .". Perhaps the song intends to make the audience think about their role in the tragedy of so many lives, and "keep with me" essentially means, "Don't turn away, look at the blood and the pain and the fear and the hate that really make your life possible".

    General CommentAnyone else get a Gang of Four vibe from this song?
    Also, I'm pretty sure it's "Come on out tonight, come and see the SIGHT" not SIDE.

    General CommentGreat song, it has a industrial revolution feel to its lyrics, or maybe like Bloody Sunday(not the U2 song)

    General CommentTo me this song is referring to supressed working class people working hard for rich factory owners.
