"Born in a Britain burdened with over one trillion pounds of national debt, a country where university fees are soaring. So do health care costs - the pension pots are running dry. On the streets - violence from people who feel cheated. But what about those too young to protest? How will they respond when the time comes for them to pay our bills? Is it destined to end in tears?"
When the streets fall apart and the money dries up,
When society falls apart doors and windows boarded up,
Graffiti on the walls, kids playing is empty houses,
set fire to the floors kids playing in burning houses.
Governments failed us.
Council spending's cut.
Benefits changed us, the councils spending what?
Kids walk the street because there's no one at home.
Kids fall asleep piss stained mattress all alone.
Dad's in the pub, he cant get a job.
Dad's on drugs he just can't get off.
Moms aint at home, she's out with her friends.
Moms aint alone i said she's out with her friends.
Pregnant at sixteen a benefit cheats dream.
Pregnant not pristine, a kid's kid gone missing,
and the government aint listening.
It's like they've got their ears covered, spend the whole time bitching.
They are liars.
Try to use expenses to cover the cost of suppliers.
Buckle under pressure and struggle when there's a crisis.
They couldn't handle London when London was having riots.
They should get fired.
Labour gave too much, conservatives take it away,
so families have to get used to living on ten pounds a day.
Child care is cut so the parents can't get to work
so the dole queue gets longer. It's the kids that get hurt.
Gangs on street corners, kids in adults clothes.
Postcode gang warfare, we cant walk down our own roads.
The youth feels let down.
They don't have a voice,
So when the looting starts they join together and rejoice.
Government cut youth funding so they turn a blind eye
and wait for this generation of young people to die.
But with our backs against the wall we do all we can to survive,
and in spite of being set back keep or hopes and dreams alive!
