Warzone

Warzone

Damp pavements, street lights. She was born to stand and fight. No favours nor charity. She was never part of a minority. Inner city baby, brought up tough. Look around here now, it looks rough. Nerves of steel get her through her day. She must survive in this concrete maze.

She’s a warzone baby, brought up in a war. She’s a warzone baby, she’s got to know the score.

It’s night and on the corner the dealer stands. One more disease in a once. great land. She ignores him and passes by. Her ambition is not to die. Turns a corner and she’s in gangland. It’s all eyes, teeth, and white headbands. She keeps her distance ‘cos she knows their game. Rapes their hobby but she ain’t playing.

She’s a warzone baby, brought up in a war. She’s a warzone baby, she’s got to know the score.

Living in a warzone, living in a hell. I don’t recall the exact day that our country’s morals fell. Living in a warzone, where death stands by our beds. Did we ever vote for this? They seem to want our nation dead dead dead.

She’s a warzone baby, brought up in a war. She’s a warzone baby, she’s got to know the score. She’s a warzone baby, brought up in a war. She’s a warzone baby, she’s got to know the score.
