lyrics

It’s on the TV and in the papers
So stay inside cos there’s nowhere safer

We can see, we can see army on the streets
Panic it’s a state of emergency
We can see, we can see Blues on the beat
Panic it’s a state of emergency
We can see, we can see bloodshed on the streets
Panic it’s a state of emergency
No sleep, no sleep on a drip of caffeine
Panic it’s a state of emergency

This propaganda breeds paranoia
If you believe it - it will destroy ya

We can see, we can see kids on the streets
Panic it’s a state of emergency
We can see, we can see rows of police
Panic it’s a state of emergency
We can see, we can see petrol bombs light the streets
Panic it’s a state of emergency
Don’t sleep, don’t sleep ‘til your dead on your feet
Panic it’s a state of emergency

We can see, we can see army on the streets
Panic it’s a state of emergency
We can see, we can see rows of police
Panic it’s a state of emergency
We can see, we can see bloodshed on the streets
Panic it’s a state of emergency
Is this a riot or a cry out for peace?
Panic it’s a state of emergency.
