  • I wanna turn those blue lights into strobe lights
    Not blue flashing lights, maybe fairy lights
    Those blue lights into strobe lights
    Maybe even fairy lights, not blue flashing lights

    Don't you run when you hear the sirens coming
    When you hear the sirens coming you'd better not run
    'Cause the sirens not coming for you
    What have you done? You went to school that day
    Was a bit late, but it wasn't Monday
    Kept after class for answering back
    You apologized, ain't no harm in that

    (I wanna turn those blue lights) What have you done?
    (Into strobe lights) There's no need to run
    (Not blue flashing lights) If you've done nothing wrong
    Blue lights should just pass you by (maybe even fairy lights)

    Gun crime into your right ear
    Drugs and violence into your left
    Before white headphones flooding
    The auditory subconscious waves you accept
    You're sitting on the 4 back home
    (Where you're at G answer your phone?)
    Pause the poison to answer his message
    Your boy sounds rush, fears for his adolescent

    (I wanna turn those blue lights) What have you done?
    (Into strobe lights) There's no need to run
    (Not blue flashing lights) If you've done nothing wrong
    Blue lights should just pass you by (maybe even fairy lights)

    Tall black shadow as you're getting off the bush
    Shadow shows no emotion, so what's even the fuss?
    But the face of your boy casts a darker picture
    Of the red handed act he's gonna whisper

    Look blood, I'm sorry 'cause I know you got my back
    He was running, I couldn't think I had to get out of that
    Not long ago, you were miming to the "Shook Ones"
    Now this really is part two, 'cause you're the shook one
    Hands you the tool as you question your friendship
    How's man like you gonna make me a convict?
    Level of a felon when I've done nothing wrong
    Blood on my hands, but I don't know where it's from, oh
    You got blood on your hands, but you don't know where it's from

    You'd better run when you hear the sirens coming
    When you hear the sirens coming
    Better run when you hear the sirens coming
    'Cause they will be coming for you
    Run when you hear the sirens coming
    Better run when you hear the sirens coming
    When you hear the sirens coming
    The blue lights are coming for you

    (I wanna turn those blue lights) What have you done?
    (Into strobe lights) There's no need to run
    (Not blue flashing lights) If you done nothing wrong
    Blue lights should just pass you by hmm (maybe even fairy lights)

    Run when you hear the sirens coming
    Don't you run when you hear the sirens coming
    Run when you hear the sirens coming
    Don't you run when you hear the sirens coming
    What have you done
    Don't you run
    Don't you run
    Don't you run when you hear the sirens coming Writer/s: Ben Joyce, Dylan Kwabena Mills, Guy Bonnet, Jorja Alice Smith, Nicholas Andrew Detnon, Roland Romanelli
