my lyricsbox
It's summertime and the country's on the line
The lads are on the streets and the riots doing fine
Picking up the pieces after the night
Picking up the pieces for another fight

The bricks beat down in the boys in blue
There's no escape, they're coming for you
The clubs come down 'round your head
It's war on the streets and they're running red!

Police are running facing defeat
Cities burning in the summer heat
Police are running facing defeat
Cities burning in the summer heat

The law can't stop the anger of the crowds
They're still coming through tear-gas clouds
Police are running, facing defeat
Tears are falling in the summer heat

The bricks beat down in the boys in blue
There's no escape, they're coming for you
The clubs come down 'round your head
It's war on the streets and they're running red!
This song is from the album "Best Of Blitz" and "Punk Singles & Rarities 1980-1983".
