On These Streets

lyrics

As I walk these streets
I feel my past come back
Project onto my eyes
Colour black and white
Time gone by, time lost
Those who paid the cost
Reflected in the sky
I stop, I close my eyes

Take back, what you took from me
Pay back, you think that it was free?
Stolen, in a time of weakness
And now, it’s time for redress
Take down, you can’t run and hide from this
Break down, I won’t be denied
Taken, in a storm for fury
Executioner, judge and jury

Born weak, but grew up strong
I knew my time would come along
Learned life’s game the hard way
No I’ll never give, I’m here to stay

Fighting to survive, try to stay alive, this is my life
This is not a game, going down in flames, feel no shame
Violence, booze and drugs, acting like a thug, only strength survives
It’s either death or jail, If you die you fail, life is fear

On these streets [x3]
Life is real

As I walk I feel my brothers close
Those that fell are always by my side
I live my life for them each day and night
For the dead I’ll make them most of my life

Fighting to survive, try to stay alive, this is my life
This is not a game, going down in flames, feel no shame
Violence, booze and drugs, acting like a thug, only strength survives
It’s either death or jail, If you die you fail, life is fear

As I walk these streets
I feel my past come back
Project onto my eyes
Colour black and white
Time gone by, time lost
Those who paid the cost
Reflected in the sky
I stop, I close my eyes

This goes out to all the fake bitches out there hiding behind mum, dad and computer screens. You wanna step up? Come and prove yourself Let’s fucking go!

Wanna fight with me? I’ll take your life
With my hands, my feet or with a knife
I own these streets and I will make you see this
When your face is broken into pieces
I’ll smash your teeth, I’ll break your hands and face
Make sure I put you in your proper place
These streets are my place, my place of rest
So step up son, put me to the test
These streets [x3]
Out on these streets

Take back, what you took from me
Pay back, you think that it was free?
Stolen, in a time of weakness
And now, it’s time for redress
Take down, you can’t run and hide from this
Break down, I won’t be denied
Taken, in a storm for fury
Executioner, judge and jury
On these streets [x3]
Life is real
