"Madam Medusa" as written by and Brown/campbell/campbell/falconer/hassan/travers/vi....
From the land of shadows
Comes a dreadful sight
Lady with the marble smile
Spirit of the night

See the scourge of innocence
Swinging in her hand
Hear the silent suffering
That echoes through the land

From the tombs of ignorance
Of hate and greed and lies
Through the smoke of sacrifice
Watch her figure rise
The sick the poor the old
Basking in her radiance
Men of blood and gold

In her bloody footsteps
Speculators prance
Men of dreams are praying
For that second chance

Round her vacant features
Gilded serpents dance
Her tree of evil knowledge
Sprouts a special branch

Madam Medusa
Madam Medusa
Madam Medusa

Knock her right down
And then she bounce right back
Knock her right down
And then she bounce right back

She gone off her head
We've got to shoot her dead
She gone off her head
We've got to shoot her dead

Run for your life before she eat you alive
Run for your life before she eat you alive
Move out of the way 'cause's you're blocking out the day
Move out of the way 'cause's you're blocking out the day

    General CommentI always thought it was referring to Margaret Thatcher. The UB40 album was released at the start of her reign as PM as she spread doom and despondency around the UK except in the protected London and South East - her supporters' heartland.
