Track Name: On All Council Estates
THE WAR HAS FINISHED, IT’S GONE AT LAST,
WE NOW FIGHT ANOTHER, WITH KNIVES & BROKEN GLASS,
KIDS ON THE STREETS, SO FULL OF HATE,
NOTHING CHANGES ON ALL COUNCIL ESTATES.

KIDS HAS YOUNG AS EIGHT & NINE,
PARENTS CANT KEEP THEM IN LINE,
SWEARING, SMOKING & STEALING FROM THE SHOP,
A HATED GENERATION, WHEN WILL IT ALL STOP.

SHE’S 16 YEARS OLD & PUSHING A PRAM,
SHE WENT DOWN THE SAME ROAD AS HER MAM,
BOYFRIEND HITS HER IF SHE FLUTTERS HER EYES,
WHEN HE’S OUT WITH HIS MATES, SHE SITS & CRIES.

GANGS OF YOUTHS SIT & DRINK ON THE WALL,
GOING NOWHERE FAST, HEADING FOR A FALL,
MOVED ON BY THE POLICE, THEY MOUTH & WALK SLOW,
WHAT IS THE POINT THEY HAVE NOWHERE TO GO.

YOUNG ONES KICKING A FOOTBALL ABOUT IN THE PARK,
OLDER ONES SMASH IT UP AS SOON AS IT GETS DARK,
WHAT IS THE POINT WHEN YOU’VE GOT NOTHING LEFT,
16 YEARS OLD STEALING CARS, TURNING TO THEFT.

TROUBLED TEENAGERS & PARENTS TROUBLED TOO,
SHOULD THEY LOCK THEM INDOORS, OR FIND SOMEWHERE NEW,
IT’S A VICIOUS CIRCLE, OR IS IT NOW TOO LATE,
NOTHING CHANGES ON ALL COUNCIL ESTATES.
Track Name: Streets Of Blood
SOCIETY HAS GOT ITS HEAD UP ITS OWN ARSE,
THIS COUNTRY HAS NO BACKBONE, ITS JUST A FARCE.
MUGGINGS & RAPINGS & OAPS BEATEN FOR THEIR PENSION,
ITS TIME FOR A CHANGE, GET RID OF ALL THIS TENSION.

( CHORUS )
LETS HAVE SOME VIGILANTES ROAMING ROUND OUR STREET,
LOOKING OUT FOR SCUMBAGS, & GIVE THEM A TREAT
TAKE THEM INTO A CORNER, & SMASH THEM IN THE FACE,
HANG THEM UP BY THEIR FEET, TO SHOW THEM THEY’RE A DISGRACE.

MOST KIDS ON THE STREETS, THEY DON’T REALLY CARE,
START A FIGHT WITH YOU, IF YOU STAND & STARE.
WHAT HAS BECOME OF THIS GREEN & PLEASANT LAND,
THE ONLY THING THAT MAKES THEM TICK, IS MONEY IN THEIR HAND.

DRUGS THAT RULE A NATION, EVERYONE ON A HIGH,
THE DEALERS THAT PUSH THE SHIT, THERE TURN TO DIE.
ANOTHER DEAD TEENAGER, SO OPEN UP YOUR EYES,
THE STREETS OF BLOOD, AND ANOTHER PARENT CRIES.
Track Name: Why ?
JUST COME BACK, FROM FIGHTING A WAR,
THINK TO YOURSELF, WHAT WHERE YOU FIGHTING FOR,
WAS IT JUST FOR ANOTHER COUNTRIES POOR,
THIS IS IT, YOU’RE NOT FIGHTING ANYMORE.

WHY x 8

STAND IN THE DESERT, YOU WERE SOMEBODY,
BACK IN CIVVY STREET, YOURE NOW NOBODY,
BUT WAS IT WORTH THE TORTURE & THE PAIN,
TO WATCH PEOPLE FALL, AND DIE IN THE DRAIN.

WHY x 8

THEY DIDN’T CARE ABOUT YOU, LIVE OR DIE,
YOU WERE A SOLDIER, WHO SHOULDN’T ASK WHY,
USED FOR FIGHTING & KILLING, IT DIDN’T MAKE SENSE,
RISKING YOUR LIFE, TO KEEP UP THERE DEFENCE.

WHY x 8

SOLDIER, SOLDIER, SOLDIER BOYS,
THANK YOU FOR PLAYING WAR GAMES LIKE TOYS,
YOU HELPED US WHEN WE NEEDED YOU MOST,
NOT WANTED ANY LONGER, GO & GET LOST.

WHY x 8

WHY MUST YOU FIGHT,
WHY MUST YOU DIE.
WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY…..
Track Name: Punters & Piss-takers
YOU TAKE, TAKE, TAKE, AND GIVE NOTHING BACK,
GRAB YOUR POT OF MONEY, AND GIVE NO RESPECT.
PUT ON YOUR BANDS, AND PAY FROM YOUR TILL,
THEN CHARGE US ON THE DOOR, LIKE WERE THE FOOLS ON THE HILL.

( CHORUS )
THE PUB TRADE IS DYING ON ITS FEET,
THE PUBLIC HOUSE, WHERE WE USED TO MEET.
GIVE US BACK OUR WORKING CLASS BOOZERS,
THERES PUNTERS & THERES PISSTAKERS, AND WE ARE THE LOSERS.

ALL WE WANT IS TO DRINK IN YOUR PUB,
NOT PAY PER VIEW OR BORROW OR SUB.
THE NO SMOKING BAN & FOOD HAS CHANGED IT,
IT HAS KILLED THE ATMOSPHERE, AND MADE IT SHIT.

OVERPRICED BEERS, A PUB CLOSES EVERYDAY,
LETS CHANGE THE SITUATION, IT MAY EVENTUALLY STAY.
COLOURED ALCOPOPS REPLACING REAL ALES,
LETS GET BACK TO BASICS, BEFORE ALL ELSE FAILS.
