Fortress Europe (2003)

While reading more details about the French désastre, I suddenly remembered this song by the Asian Dub Foundation.

A fragment of the lyrics:
2022 -A new European order
Robot guards patrolling the border
Cybernetic dogs are getting closer and closer
Armoured cars and immigration officers
A burning village in Kosovo
You bombed it out now you're telling us go home
Machine guns strut on the cliffs of Dover
Heads down people look out! we're going over
Burnin up! can we survive re-entry
Past the mines and the cybernetic sentries
Safe european homes built on wars

You don't like the effect don't produce the cause
The chip is in your head not on my shoulder
Total control just around the corner
