The Clash Explains It All

Part of a continuing series. Is not "The Call Up" a good rough translation of "al-Dawa"? I think that's right:

It's up to you not to heed the call-up
'N' you must not act the way you were brought up
Who knows the reasons why you have grown up?
Who knows the plans or why they were drawn up?

There's also an obvious pertinance to the military overstretch issue here.
