A video to the song: the absurdity of supposed human over human control. The song, from the Ultravox, '84, album - Lament:

When pale turns to pink
With a soft unnerving ease
And all you've built around
May just tumble to the ground

Will you stand or fall?
With your future in another's hands
Will you stand or fall?
When your life is not your own

When white turns to red
In the not too distant days
Will force and misery
Be the life you have to lead?

Will you stand or fall?
With your children in another's world
Will you stand or fall?
When your town is not your own

White China
White China

When crimson takes a hold
The lights go down on all you've ever known
And all you'll ever do is worked out for you

Will you stand or fall?
When the thoughts you have are not your own
Will you stand or fall?
Oh, when the freedom slips away

White China
White China

White China
White China
White China
White China
