The lyrics aren’t meant literally,they are a continuation of the themes of dead end jobs and escaping oppression that run through so many of The Clash songs.
The band filmed a low budget video for the song depicting members of the band recording the song in the studio,interspersed with Clash roadies Baker and Green wearing bandanas over their faces performing a bank heist in Lewisham.During filming,Baker and Green were stopped by the police who thought they were genuine bank robbers.
