Oh, Romeo is bleeding to death..
To see a friend bleed to death
What for, some kind of metaphor
That I can't see..
So I'll drink until I see it.
This sky will make me sick,
So I'll give up on you,

If you've ever seen the music video for this you'll understand it. "That I can't see.., So I'll drink until I see it." (I think) states Thatcher (The first women Prime Minister) does not see what the people are going through. "Or the way you want me more than I want you." (I think) means Thatcher knew the people wanted her but she didn't want the working class. "Archers in your arches, Raise your fingers for one last salute." Means when the miners protessed they held up the two fingers (aka the american peace sign) which in England means they were swearing. They would hold them up at the police when thatcher got the police involed. "Dear friends of this academy, Oh, Romeo is bleeding to death. To see a friend bleed to death, What for, some kind of metaphor" (I think) means upper class people who used to be friends and family to the working miners and didn't do anything because of what Thatcher said about them.
But the line "You're history is mine!" means that what the child's parents history is also theirs. So they must learn from it.
