  • Police and thieves in the street
    Fightin the nation with their
    Guns and ammunition

    Police and thieves in the street
    Fightin the nation with their
    Guns and ammunition
    Guns and ammunition
    Guns and ammunition

    Late night roam the street like a fox on the road
    16, experiment a little heroin and coke
    Room full of coke cans syringes
    Poster over the hole where po-po kicked the door off the hinges
    6 kids all living in a flat no jobs no dough every dealer on his back
    Mums on her own drunk when she comes home
    Days on end sleeps out and don't phone
    Daddy don't exist such a cliche these days
    So he looks up to the G's, theives
    Whatever he makes G's take and call it a clean slate
    Until one day he said he had a job for him, paid
    And said "all you have to do is wait
    Outside 1 crib and tell me when the breader comes in
    And who the breaders with and if the shit goes to plan you can earn a gib
    That's what I call quick dough but what he didn't know that the G was a snitch
    And the breaders in the crib were selling guns and cutting bricks
    And he just phoned the G when the breader rolled in and told him
    He with about 5 man and 1 chick and next thing you know there's armed police at the crib
    Sirens so loud he's tryna read the fed's lips
    And what sounds like "put your hands behind your head"
    Was actually "don't fucking move and we won't have to shoot"

    Police and thieves in the street
    Fightin the nation with their
    Guns and ammunition

    Police and thieves in the street
    Fightin the nation with their
    Guns and ammunition
    Guns and ammunition
    Guns and ammunition

    Look how many youths have got guns on 'em, bustin' 'em
    Eyes on the back of their heads, can't see infront of them.
    Enough of 'em, it's time to fuck with 'em
    Yeah I got 99 problems and London's one of 'em
    Youths have lost lives from Stratford to Moss Side
    And all they care about is if they lost stripes
    I ain't no preacher MC, I'm feeling MC's,
    But dig a little a deeper like dynamite
    And I know I say some bullshit in moments of anger,
    And it's not cool for the fan club
    Just the other day we we're up late discussing Iraq,
    Over a glass of champagne, how fucked is that?
    I ain't celebrating shit - If I ain't using my status to make a change, I ain't ever making hits
    A wise man told me Kane listen,
    If you want to fly like an eagle you can't fly with pigeons,
    An eagle I am for a reason I am, where I m but how you supposed to make it out of Eastham when there's...

    Police and thieves in the street (and it's easy to end up in a police van when they're...)
    Fightin the nation with their
    Guns and ammunition

    Police and thieves in the street
    Fightin the nation with their
    Guns and ammunition
    Guns and ammunition
    Guns and ammunition

    Guns and ammunition
    Guns and ammunition
    Fighting the nation with their
    Guns and ammunition
    Police and theives in the street
    Bang bang and it ain't nothin sweet
    Believe, peace
