  • It's a very small world in the middle of a crowd
    The room gets dark when the music gets loud
    Treble cuts through' when the rhythm takes the bite
    But there's no room to move 'cause the floor is packed tight

    A voice shouts loud
    "We'll never surrender"
    A voice in the crowd
    "Never surrender"

    A hand in the crowds flying propaganda,
    "Never surrender, we'll never surrender"

    The skins in the corner are staring at the bar
    The rude boys are dancing to some heavy heavy ska
    It's getting so hot people are dripping with sweat
    The punks in the corner are speeding like a jet

    Staring at the rude boys
    Staring at the rude boys
    Dancing with the rude boys
    Dancing with the rude boys
    Staring at the rude boys
    Staring at the rude boys

    A bunch of peers march in on the DM's
    With some standing there saluting the air
    They want to be pirates but the sea is not calm
    Tattooed crossbows on their arm

    A voice shouts loud
    "We'll never surrender"
    A voice in the crowd
    "Never surrender"

    Another hand fly, fly propaganda,
    Propaganda, propaganda

    The lights come alive in a blinding flash
    Dance floor clears as the mutants clash
    Everyone leaves when the heavy's arrive
    Someone hits the floor, someone takes a dive

    Staring at the rude boys
    Staring at the rude boys
    Dancing with the rude boys
    Dancing with the rude boys
    Staring at the rude boys
    Staring at the rude boys

    Staring at the rude boys
    Staring at the rude boys
    Dancing with the rude boys
    Dancing with the rude boys
    Staring at the rude boys
    Staring at the rude boys
