The savage mutilation of the human race is set on course

Protest and survive, protest and survive

It's up to us to change that course
Protest and survive, protest and survive

    General CommentGiven the release date (1982) of the Discharge album this song appears on ('Hear Nothing See Nothing Say Nothing') - and the date of the writing of E. P. Thomson (early 80s), I think this song could well be about mankind's destruction by nuclear war:

    From Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…):

    "From 1980, Thompson was the most prominent intellectual of the revived movement for nuclear disarmament, revered by activists throughout the world. In Britain, his pamphlet "PROTEST AND SURVIVE", a parody on the government leaflet Protect and Survive, played a major role in the revived strength of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament."
