Take Back The Streets

We took to the streets in our thousands
Waving our placards and signs
But ever since the days of September 11
Every cunt’s too scared to go outside

Cause it’s easier to hit ‘Like’ on a Facebook page
Than it is to get kicked in the face
I miss the sounds of the police sirens
The smell of Molotovs mixed with mace

The coppers on horses and riot squad forces
Came in to take us away
So the bastards in power
In glass and steel towers
Could finally start to feel safe

Never, not once would they cast us a gaze
Down to the rebellious parade
Made up of those sick
of the cracking of whips
And those breaking their backs everyday

Let’s take back the streets my friends,
We’ll show them our power again
Lets take back the streets my friends,
We’ll show them our power again

Dragged from the womb
Into suburban tombs
Set down in a middle class hell
Spending your days, sipping on Chardonnays
And cursing slow ADSL

Utopian dreams
Viewed on LCD screens
Shield you from the harsh world outside
But you’ll never be free
Watched on CCTV
by Big Brother’s all-seeing eye

It’s time to start getting angry again,
It’s time to open your eyes
Think for yourself
Question those with the wealth
And cast off the media lies

We need a new revolution
To take back our world from the rich
Rise up and make sure that your voices are heard
Break their windows
And start throwing bricks

Let’s take back the streets my friends,
We’ll show them our power again
Lets take back the streets my friends,
We’ll show them our power again

We’ll take back the streets my friends,
We’ll show them our power again
We’ll take back the streets my friends,
We’ll show them our power again
