  • Time bomb where did it go wrong
    Street fights in the city lights for you, who are you?
    The uppercut from the upper class
    I spilled my drink and I broke my glass for you, who are you?

    You look fit but you ain't got it
    Think you're a dog well you're just a bitch
    I bet you'd like to take me for a ride

    Sing loud all you people
    We're fighting in the streets
    Sing loud all you people
    This city's killing me

    With no money and the cupboards bare
    Knew who I was and I didn't care for you, who are you?
    The undercurrent of the underdog
    Will wipe the floor with your suit and job you do, who are you?

    You box clever like to box you hard
    So what do you got without your credit card
    Not a lot 'cause what you think you've got's not real

    Sing loud all you people
    We're fighting in the streets
    Sing loud all you people
    This city's killing me

    Time bomb where did it go wrong
    Street fights and the city lights
    For you, who are you?
    The uppercut from the upper class
    I spilled my drink and I broke my glass for you, who are you?

    Sing loud all you people
    We're fighting in the streets
    Sing loud all you people
    This city's killing me

    Sing loud all you people
    We're fighting in the streets
    Sing loud all you people
    This city's killing me Writer/s: KELLY JONES
