"Cloak and Dagger" as written by and Nik Kershaw....
You may never get to wander
along the corridors of power
where the files tell your story
beneath the bell that keeps it's secret by the hour
we wanna know what's it's got to say.

we know what you're doing
we know what you've got
we know how you got it
but we don't talk a lot

and everything's so
cloak and dagger
our future in their hands
promises of promised lands
cloak and dagger
our world behind closed doors
and what they have is mine and yours

we give you bits and pieces
to keep you happy and fat
we know the things that matter
but we don't talk about that

mums the word

cloak and dagger
our future in their hands
promises of promised lands
cloak and dagger
our world behind closed doors
and what they have is mine and yours

when there's still conflict and confusion
after everything they've tried
why can't they just let go of their secrets
cos there's no suspicion when there's nothing left to hide
there's nothing left to hide

we know that things that matter
but we're not telling you
cos you might try to stop us
and that would never do

and everything's so
cloak and dagger
our future in their hands
promises of promised lands
cloak and dagger
our world behind closed doors

and what they have is mine and yours

    My InterpretationI believe that nik kershaw was ahead of his time predicting that us people espically Brits whould be slaves to the machine of Islam and left wing Norman fucks. The bloody government is cloak and dagger about their response to terrorism and I know that hand wringling lefties would love to see Islam take over uk and the world!
