"We're All Criminals Now" as written by Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe....
Videoed on the subway
Reading the news and then
Walking along the high street
Videoed once again
Waiting for a bus in Stockwell
Cameras on my back
Suddenly hearing sirens
Sounding a panic attack

Hey, hey
Don't ask me how
We've changed
We're all criminals now
Hey, hey
Don't ask me how
We're blamed
We're all criminals now

Just a routine procedure (we're watching you)
A sample of your DNA (the things you do)
Queuing to be finger-printed (you could be dangerous)
Going to the USA
Another routine procedure (we're on your case)
Driving in your car (we've seen your face)
Stopped and searched and questioned (some place before)
Can you prove who you are?

Hey, hey
Don't ask me how
We've changed
We're all criminals now
Hey, hey
Don't ask me how
We've been framed
We're all criminals now
Hey, hey, hey
We're all criminals now
Hey, hey, hey
We're all criminals now

Got the bus to the station
Music playing in my head
Ran to get on the tube train
Police shot someone dead

Don't ask me how
We're all criminals now

Hey, hey
Don't ask me how
We're blamed
We're all criminals now
Hey, hey
Don't ask me how
We've been framed
We're all criminals now

    Song MeaningThis song by the PetShop Boys, which many reviews misinterpret, is no doubt about government covert surveillance, electronic harassment and gang-stalking.

    1. "Videoed on the subway..." "Cameras on my back...."

    Gang-Stalkers, which are also known as perpetrators, stalk their victims in a number of ways using various forms of technology.

    In most cases the stalkers work together and follow the target to video, record and take pictures of the target documenting their every move and invading their privacy.

    2. "Suddenly hearing sirens sounding a panic attack." " Got to the subway, music playing in my ear."

    Targets of electronic harassment by perpetrators receive a myriad of sounds and noises by the use of silent projected sound only audiable to the victim, such as sirens or alarms which are common, where the listener typically gets frightened and inevitably induces a panic attack.

    3. "Hey, Hey. Don't ask me how - We've changed- Were all criminals now"

    When the target is gang-stalked, people are contacted such as friends, family and those who are close to the victim, coercing them ("We've changed")as criminals by terrorist threats to participate, lie, harass, commit crimes and most importantly stalk the victim.

    "We've been framed, were all criminals now."

    The method in which these individuals close to the subject are contacted, remains unknown and top-secret ("don't ask me how..." )because the target typically does not know how the "perpetrators" eventually link to one another but inevitably everyone who is contacted becomes a criminal in some aspect.

    4." Were watching you." The things you do." "You could be dangerous." "Were on your case. "We've seen your face."

    This references to the endless lies and false accusations by perpetrators, harassing the target, who is kept under surveillance by perpetrators posing or acting as figures of authority and destroying the victims credability by "character assasination" which typically leads to some form of incrimination such as being a terrorist.
