"War On Culture" as written by Tony James and Mick Jones....
I say, I say, I say

There's a conspiracy and tryin' for a coup
I think we should be free to do what we want to do
You may well roll over but don't expect me to go along
Hold it, wait a minute, I ain't done nothing wrong

Where will they welcome us with open arms when we are on the run
To some remote island where we can have some fun
What they're trying to sell us is really just a con
Hasn't anybody noticed what's been going on?

They shouldn't get away with it and somebody should say
I shouldn't have to pack up all my bags and move away
The global war on culture started with a song
Hold on, wait a minute I ain't done nothing wrong

Drew a line into the sand which can decide upon
When you wake up in the morning what side are you on?
With some surprise and deep regret I have to say so long
Hold on, wait a minute, I ain't done nothing wrong

Where will they welcome us with open arms when we are on the run
To some remote island where we can have some fun
What they're trying to sell us is really just a con
Hasn't anybody noticed what's been going on?

Don't feel apppreciated in a place without a heart
Where there's no appreciation of the finer points of modern art
But I'm not going anywhere, so if you want to start
There's plenty people just like me who're glad to take my part

It all began with a line in the glassy sand
And the assasination of Franz Ferdinand
Now I'm digging tunnels like the Vietcong
Hold on, wait a minute, I ain't done nothing wrong

Where will they welcome us with open arms when we are on the run
To some remote island where we can have some fun
And what they're trying to tell us is really just a con
Hasn't anybody noticed what's been going on?

So it's red-tops versus cokeheads in a cultural civil war
At least I know what I'm fighting for
What I'm fighting for

As hypocrites and liars adopt a moral tone
He who is without sin may as well go home
May as well as go home

It's a shame I know, but yours is the disgrace
I reserve the right to get off my face
To get off my face

Get it
