A clockwork orange comes from an old London saying "queer as a clockwork orange". A clockwork orange is actually a wind up doll that is controlled by both god and the devil. Anthony Burgess uses this for his book to symbolize the government almost brainwashing Alex in order to control his bad behavior.
