Born without a clue. A lifetime later, situation largely unchanged. Nevertheless, one perseveres.....

Half my friends are hippies, living in tents and trucks
Camping in the winter, following the sun
Come down for the solstice, hang around the stones
But all they ever found, was military clones
Wiltshire police, Thames Valley too,
Ministry of Defence, bloodthirsty mob of blue
Heavy, macho, boys..... In uniform
Well I used to love 'em but it's all over now......
Got plastic on their faces, batons in their hands
Plastic shields and wire mesh, bolted on their vans
Got helicopters in the air, got road blocks on the ground
Sergeants and Inspectors, running all around
Got license to smash, got license to spill
Got license to break teeth, got license to kill
Thick, stupid, boys..... In uniform
Well I use to love 'em but it's all over now......
Come crawling through the hedges, come charging across the fields
Come brave ready for anything, hiding behind their shields
Start to hit the women, start to hit the men
Start to hit the children, then do it all again
Smashing up the buses, smashing people's homes
Smashing people's faces, breaking people's bones
Educationally sub-normal delinquents........ In uniform
Well I use to put up with 'em but it's all over now......
They're doing it all on overtime, at the taxpayer's expense
Answerable to no one, they don't have to make no sense
The Inspectors are freemasons, the sergeants kiss their bums
The goons that do the trashing are the mindless and the dumb
Over paid and over perked, overfed on rot
Over exposed to TV violence, under exposed to thought
Disturbed, alienated, psychopaths......... In uniform
Well I used to put up with 'em but it's all over now......
