Conflict - The Right To Reply Lyrics

  • The house,
  • Looks for an answer to end all the violence.
  • The ungovernable finally break silence,
  • There's endless white papers, and new institutions.
  • That still won't stop us, it's no solution
  • The right and the left wing continue to bore,
  • With pre-dated policies all heard before.
  • This is mankind now see how mankind kills,
  • We're hitting back hard now you see how it feels.
  • They teach and preach examination tests,
  • So the political privelaged can order the rest,
  • Of the young parasites,
  • Who live in a world without hope,
  • To get back in line, and stay there,
  • Then assure us they'll cope.
  • In the new violent Brirtain they pledge to invest,
  • In skills and communities with renewed interest.
  • To build schools of education,
  • Not colleges of crime
  • A manifesto so perfcetly timed,
  • Providing help for the helpless,
  • Their new commissions strive,
  • For a stable re-educated society by 1995.
  • Meanwhile, we fight on in desparation
  • Still trying to break through.
  • Their barriers of insanity and even now they know it's true,
  • That to irradicate violence effectively,
  • Injustice has to unfold.
  • But, instead they choose to compensate, to lie and
  • Then collaborate, no interest in any true debate,
  • Their courts set up the offenders fate, the new
  • Secure units for the old custodial sentence.
  • Well we have listened to you for long enough,
  • Taken all your threats, and you ain't so tough.
  • You intimidate, then punish the persistent hard-core offender.
  • You condemn more and understand less,
  • You'll get no apologies ever.
  • In an atmosphere of moral panic,
  • You blame us for fighting back.
  • But it's us that's been dragged through your streets backwards,
  • Battered shell-shocked and attacked.
  • The pressure's building on law and order,
  • But we ain't even started.
  • They may think they have been tested,
  • But no way for we still stand divided.
  • More and more we're turning against our own,
  • How come? How have we forgot?
  • That this is the one thing they want us to do,
  • To compensate
  • For the freedom that we ain't got.
  • Some mug old folks and these are SCUM
  • It's the one main thing that just ain't done.
  • We can deal perfectly with our own problems,
  • By taking the law in to our own hands.
  • We can protect our own, young, the weak, and
  • Elderly, and therefore smash their callous plans.
  • I shall not work to build my death
  • Nor have decisions madeby fools,
  • For my or your behalf.
  • As though I can't see or hear
  • Of that which surrounds me,
  • As though I'm quite content
  • With all that, that disgusts me.
  • I will not build for another's gain,
  • Although it always ends up the same,
  • It's as though I can't see or hear,
  • As though I'm content,
  • With everything that disgusts me.
  • How can they talk about low life?
  • Whilst they're destroying the earth?
  • How can they take away someone's freedom?
  • When they don't know what it's worth.
  • To the people with feelings,
  • To those not totally succeeding,
  • Those, shattered, torn, ripped right in half,
  • And whose broken hearts are bleeding.
  • Yet still they bash and batter,
  • To them, man onslaught, does not matter.
  • They create society's whitewashed picture,
  • That everything is alright.
  • Then when people voice opinion, and object,
  • They show disgust, confusion and then demonstrate
  • Their might.
  • Don't you dare think for a moment, that it's only in a
  • Riot that we show we're discontent.
  • It's in every so called criminal act,
  • That we demonstrate our contempt.
  • You shove your outstanding promises, your respect
  • I only have respect for the life.
  • That you destroy time and time and time again,
  • I'm still hoping for the hopeless,
  • And making excuses for the lawless
