UNDER ARREST IN THE NAME OF THE STATE

UNDER ARREST IN THE NAME OF THE STATE
Words By Roger Antony Carter
Music By Barry David Butler
Performed By BARRY & THE BOOMERS

Inside these four walls
Fear plays out its game
Heavy doors and bright lights
The State Is Proclaimed

They came in the night
Without any warning
Before the chill glow
Of a threatening morning

Hey…Can you hear Me
What I’m saying
Listen you may catch
The sound of me praying

How am I wrong
What was my crime
I cried for freedom
A cry for all time

Blank faced and tight lipped
They read me my rights
Then bundled me out
Way outta sight

Now they promise a cure
To clear my delusions
Just the slightest discomfort
The mildest intrusions

(Repeat Chorus)

Recant and Conform
They whisper their Mantra
Insistent…unending
They ask why can’t ya

And what have I done
Without good reason
I cannot carry on
They call it Treason

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)

They take my ID
Break me….Remake me
Remove all I am
Decide who I’ll be

They’re gonna alter my mind
In The Name Of The State
It’s good for the Nation
To destroy all my hate

(Repeat Chorus)

FADE ON Can’t You Hear Me
Can’t You Hear Me
TONIGHT
