Lyrics
Does anyone know where the march is?
We've been searching for hours
We couldn't get the generator started
We were on the back of a lorry
But with no power we had no sound
While we were tackling the problem
The march moved off and disappeared into town

CHORUS:
Oh where did it go - god knows
It could have been worse I suppose
Just look at us
We're standing there in our rebel clothes
Singing rebel songs with a rebel pose
We were waiting for the traffic to clear
Stuck outside Tesco's

Does anyone know where the march is
we bellowed at the passers by
They thought we were a bunch of crazies - no reply
We saw a kid clutching a leaflet
Ah, this is where the march must've been
She told us we were all stupid
It was causing the traffic jam that we were in

CHORUS

A band with a message
Going nowhere
So we played to the shoppers
In the end we didn't care, we didn't care
They said, what's this, what's this, oh how subversive

LIFE IN THEIR HANDS
Hello there
It's been a long time
What's this I've heard on the grapevine?
Oh is it true?
You're not telling lies?
Let's talk some more when we get inside

The sound system
Was playing real loud
The rhythms were hard, the message was proud
Oh how we danced
Till it turned bad
Because my drink; it slipped out of my hand

But then a bouncer pulled me aside
And before I could apologise
He said something about a joke
That I'd made at the door
I hadn't wished to offend him
But that search was something more

I overhead them
One night in a pub
They talked about the fun they dad working in the clubs

Oh and the tales
Made my hair stand on end
What type of man would employ these three men?
Check it, check it

Well, out of the dark there now stared
Six unblinking eyes
Which followed me everywhere
I shan't relax tonight
But what's worrying me the most
Is how the hell I get outside without b__ping into them

They said:
You can drink if you want, pal
You can drink if you like
But don't step out of line 'cos your life is in our hands
