"Radio Clash" as written by Joe Strummer, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon....
This is Radio Clash
Stealing all transmissions
Beaming from the mountaintop
Using aural ammunition

With extreme prejudice
On a terminator mission
This is Radio Clash
Consider your position

Step it up, get down low
Breaking news flash
Assassination
The whole country has been shot

Evil will abate
In Revelation
In the Ministry of Whitewash

Wait, wait
Don't switch off the death
Yes, we have the latest score
? Islanders, 101 and Home Yard, 44

This is Radio Clash
And we count your thoughts
When lightning splits the sky in half
Sharper than a sword

And in the thundercloud
You see another cloud
Bones as big as sticks
Even angels were in hell on the morning of the sixth

Like buckets of venom in ?
They've got a master plan
Human wars over there
And we'll come and knock 'em down

And he reaches the other side first
Gets a job in the dirty old town
And he reaches the other side first
Gets a job in the dirty old town

This is not free
This is not free Europe
No, no, no, no, no
Nor an armed force network

This is Radio Clash
Stealing all transmission
Beaming from the mountaintop
Aural ammunition

A riggy diggy dig dang dang
This is Radio Clash
Stealing information
By his will as a ?
Use careful confirmation

Bribery, extortion
Legal legislation
Security is life indeed
Accept no other explanation

This is Radio Clash
On pirate satellite
Orbiting your living room
Everybody hold on tight

    General CommentUmm, redeyed, I'm afraid Bunny may be right, I'm listening to it right now. They mention Vietnam in the one I'm listening too, and to back it up they mention napalm, so yeah...
    Maybe there's different versions of this song, I don't know. You're both right.

    And we count your thoughts ==> should be anger turns to thoughts
    When lightning splits the sky in half
    Sharper than a sword
