This city is dangerous
It cuts like a knife
Traffic flowing down a one way street
No time to fight

Overtime not injury time
Shots ring out on Kings Road
Double blasts of shotgun
Pay back what’s been owed

The city’s pulling free
Break the shackles of greed
And dare to disagree
Mirrors life across the water
And when the story’s untold
Always follow the gold
Illegal influence
But still no consequence

Meanwhile in the suburbs
Mr and Mrs Jones
Keeping up with the neighbours
Finance it all with loans

Equity in the negative
Sell the family car
Not enough to stave off repossession
Ride the wave but not too far
