about

When I wrote this during the Brixton Riots, I hoped it would soon be quaint and out-of-date, and all this time later, it is more relevant than ever.

lyrics

There's gonna be
Blood in the street,
There's gonna be
Fire in the city.
There'll be
Lives on the line
When your sins come back on you.

The game is up,
I think I hear them calling
The game is up,
I think they're coming after you.
The game is up,
I think your secret'sa been uncovered,
They've found you out,
Now they're gonna make you pay.

With the
Blood in the street,
There's gonna be
Fire in the city.
There'll be
Lives on the line
When your sins come back on you.

The game is up,
The dispossessed and starving.
The game is up,
In their chains of poverty.
The game is up,
All the peasants that you spat on,
The victims of your luxury and waste.

There's gonna be
Blood in the street,
There's gonna be
Fire in the city.
There'll be
Lives on the line
When your sins come back on you.

The game is up,
You almost made it.
The game is up,
You almost got away.
The game is up,
But you got too greedy,
You went too far
And you threw the game away.

There's gonna be
Blood in the street,
There's gonna be
Fire in the city.
There'll be
Lives on the line
When your sins come back on you.

The game is up,
They've got your number
The game is up,
They know where you live
The game is up
There's no use hiding
There's no defence
And there's nowhere to run

From the
Blood in the street,
There's gonna be
Fire in the city.
There'll be
Lives on the line
When your sins come back on you.
