On city streets you need to
Be careful who you speak to
Or look at or touch
As that's enough to get you in too deep

Oh, what a laugh to hurt one
Humiliate and murk one
A country in need where bloods don't bleed
What are you going to do?

Victorian, Georgian, Roman or Norman
Before the Gregorian, violence breeds
Don't matter what era, there's always a fear there
Hope?s to make beer, that's all you need

It?s bait to be fateful but nasty and hateful
People aren't grateful, they sow the seed
Into their offspring, most likely costing
Kids to be fostering idea?s that lead to

Fighting, biting, run for your lives
Shanking and spanking, run for your lives
Hitting and spitting, run for your lives

it'll never change, it'll never change
It'll never change, it'll never change
It'll never change

Run for your lives
Run for your lives

Get your head down when hood's up
Don't you look sharp or fix up
If weapons are words then don't be heard
Silence equals peace

Victorian, Georgian, Roman or Norman
Before the Gregorian, violence breeds
Don't matter what era, there's always a fear there
Hope?s to make beer, that's all you need

It?s bait to be fateful but nasty and hateful
People aren't grateful, they sow the seed
Into their offspring, most likely costing
Kids to be fostering idea?s that lead to

Fighting, biting, run for your lives
Shanking and spanking, run for your lives
Hitting and spitting, run for your lives

it'll never change, it'll never change
We will never change, we will never change
It'll never change

Run for your lives
Run for your lives
Run for your lives
Run for your lives
