a sense of enterprise is here the attitudes that conquer fear stability togetherness the feeling cannot be suppressed hand in hand we had our say united we stand but so did they hands in handcuffs dragged away to cheers of hate and victory! chorus: we fought the city but no-one cared they passed it off as just a game the city won't stop till attitudes change rats in the cellars of the stock exchange co-ordination was not so good but everyone did just what they could unarmed with inexperience we had to use our common sense "if you act like rats you get treated like this" said a policeman like we didn't exist when the force of law has lost it's head the law of force is what you get (chorus) we fought their calculations money gained from third world nations all that money spent on war could be used to feed their poor the papers played the whole thing down said there was nothing to worry about the rats have all gone underground but we'll be back again next time round

    General Commentwow, i cant believe no one has commented yet, ok i believe this song is about punks, and how society rejects them and thinks they are paranoid (Fought the city but no one cared)and police are always harassing them "if you act like rats you get treated like this" said a policeman like we didn't exist.
