Now watch as the ball revolves and the nighttime calls And again the hunt begins and again the bloodwind calls By and by again, the morning sun will rise But the darkness never goes from some mens eyes.
It strolls the sidewalks and it rolls the streets Stalking turf, dividing up meat. Nightmare spook, piece of heat, you and me, you and me.
Click, flashblade in ghetto night. Rudies looking for a fight. Rat cat alley roll them bones. There was an error. General Comment This is my favorite song, in a lyrical sense. It makes me think how much trouble we are in when a band wrote this in the late 70's early 80's, and it still applies today. Pretty sweet. Song Meaning!!!
Much of this song is clearly about nuclear warfare; it was released during the Cold War, at a time when the existence of nuclear weapons was being protested tremendously. The "politicians throwing stones Singing ashes to ashes all fall down"? Clearly symbolizing nuclear warfare! It was the 80s, you see. It was time to get hi-tech.
Strategically placed stickers on the lurid cover suggested the latter, but when they were peeled off the vinyl version they just revealed more shapes beneath. Youths convicted of "vandalism and battery" for throwing stones at vehicles have been imprisoned. Rock throwing may occur in a variety of contexts, but often occurs in association with assaultive offenses, demonstrations and riots, and international conflicts.
Rock-throwing can be used by thieves, as demonstrated by a case in India in which Ratan Marwadi 45 was charged with throwing rocks at a random passer-by, Darshana Pawar, for the purpose of disabling and robbing her. Pawar was killed. Her murderer, Ratan Marwadi, had previously served time in jail for pelting rail commuters with stones with the intent of robbing them. Rocks thrown at cars moving along highways at high speeds have been a problem in a number of countries.
If it's coming through your windshield, it can cause serious damage to the body, vehicle or even death. Notable instances of death and injury caused by rocks thrown at cars include the death of Julie Catherine Laible , a professor at the University of Alabama ,  the Darmstadt American rock-throwing incident in which American teenagers killed a year-old woman and critically injured her grandmother, then hit another car, killing the year-old mother of 2 small children,  the Death of Chris Currie , 20 years old, on a road in New Zealand,  the Killing of David Wilkie by striking miners throwing rocks at cars in the United Kingdom , and the I rock throwing in which youths hurled rocks from an overpass on Interstate 80 in Pennsylvania, critically injuring and permanently disfiguring a passenger.
Throwing rocks at trains is a long-standing problem in countries including the United States and New Zealand, where passengers and train crews have been injured by large rocks thrown through windows. Rock throwing has been in the past often adopted as a method by an unarmed population to protest a governing power's authority. Under English common law , soldiers were not permitted to shoot at civilians engaged in this kind of protest, unless their lives were in danger or they obtained beforehand an express order from a civil magistrate.
At one point, when town officials tried to arrest a British officer who was commanding the guard at Boston Neck, Captain Ponsonby Molesworth intervened to confront a stone-throwing crowd. Molesworth ordered the soldiers to bayonet anyone throwing stones who got too close. A Boston justice told him that, under common law, a bayonet thrust was not an act of self-defense against a stone, which was not a lethal weapon.
Had a soldier killed anyone, Molesworth could have been tried for his life. Political demonstrations in many countries have resulted with the arrest of violent protestors for throwing rocks and other objects at police.
Many notorious and deadly riots have begun with rock throwing, or included rock throwing as violence escalated, including the Toronto Jubilee riots , the Boston Massacre , and the Hrushevskoho Street riots in the Ukraine.
Rock-throwers on the Mexican side of the border between the United States and Mexico frequently target United States Border Patrol agents with barrages of rocks to prevent them from apprehending individuals illegally crossing the border, particularly smugglers moving illegal drugs or illegal migrants across the border.
In recent years, increasing numbers of undocumented sub-Saharan Africans have passed through Morocco attempting to reach European Union countries, many attempt to enter Spanish soil at two Spanish enclaves, Melilla and Ceuta , located on the African side of the Mediterranean Sea.
