"Curfew" as written by Hugh Alan Cornwell, David Greenfield, Brian John Duffy and Jean Jacques Burnel....
The enemy has cut down all the power
London south of the Thames is invaded
Westminster is razed down to the ground

The government has fled
The government has fled
The government has fled to Scotland today

Gray becomes black and white
Is it true what they say?
They turn the day into night
Black and white becomes

The government has fled into thin air
What's left of our troops has joined with the Scots
To form in defense across of the north

Stay in your homes
Stay in your homes
Be off the streets by nightfall

Gray becomes black and white
Is it true what they say?
They turn the day into night
Black and white becomes

Germany failed to protect her borders
She had grown soft with the American dream
The men from the Steppes delivered their vacuum

A new kind of freedom
Freedom's a chain
Maybe I'll find love when there's nothing to do

Grey becomes black and white
Is it true what they say?
They turn the day into night
Black and white becomes

    Lyric CorrectionThe line is actually, "to form in defence across the Cairngorms"

    This song was so scary for me when I first heard it as a twelve year old living in London in 1984. I was fully expecting to die in a nuclear war, and failing that, this songs scenario seemed the most likely.
