"Coppers" as written by and Lars Frederiksen Douglas C. Bennett....
Yeah we're on/rhymes ??? imagine that
All punk rock must move inside, all ??? must move inside.
Come out to Brooklyn Town and Coyote Studios ???

[Repeat x2]
London you're gonna find them
New York, L.A., back to Kingston
All I see is youth fighting
All I see is youth fighting

Well, in sympathy, there's some
Integrity, but in
Humility I've come to find a whole lot more

I'm not one to judge, nor I
Carry a grudge, but I
Refuse to budge my determinating vow

London you're gonna find them (London town)
New York, L.A., back to Kingston (waterhouse)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)

London you're gonna find them (Brixton)
New York, L.A., back to Kingston (Kingston, JA)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)

Come I said put down your ratchet now
Rudeboy set down your gun
L.A., Kingston, New York and London
Move, nobody fight, form together as one
This gun pressure soon be over and done

??? the road controlled by Satan
Fight back from that with love vibration
Pull out, division, racism, and schism
We gonna make 'em flee, run

Easy, you know it ain't easy
Got to make a decision
Got to learn to say no, no, no...

I burn from inside all the walls
A dead man can't hear all the calls
Who lives like a sheep in the city concrete
Never runs deep and dies from the heat

Coppers and hoods, dead man's stood
It ain't no good when you're misunderstood
When you're rotting in jail, wish you would be
Out on the street like Robin Hood

All those who fall, those who try
Let them go, oh victimize
You see you ain't gonna take their power, demise
Not in your lifetime see more hypnotized, come again

London you're gonna find them (London town)
New York, L.A., back to Kingston (Waterhouse)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)


London you're gonna find them (Brixton)
New York, L.A., back to Kingston (Kingston, JA)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)

Come I said put down your ratchet now
Rude boy set down your gun
L.A., Kingston, New York and London
Move, nobody fight, form together as one
This gun pressure soon be over and done

??? the road controlled by Satan
Fight back from that with love vibration
Pull out, division, racism, and schism
We gonna make 'em flee, run

Easy, you know it ain't easy
Got to make a decision
Got to learn to say no, no, no

I burn from inside all the walls
A dead man can't hear all the calls
Who lives like a sheep in the city concrete
Never runs deep and dies from the heat

Heat...heat...heat...heat...

[Repeat x4]
London you're gonna find them (London Town)
New York, L.A., back to Kingston (Kingston, JA)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)

All I see is you/youth fighting
All I see is you/youth fighting
All I see is you/youth fighting...

    General Commentlyrics are all wrong! I think this is more correct:
    Yeah Rancid and Buju drop, imagine that
    All punk rock masters move inside, all trick masters move inside.
    Come out to Brooklyn Town in Coyote Studios..

    [repeat 2x]

    New York, L.A., back to Kingston (Waterhouse)
    All I see is youth fighting (youth them all are fightin)

    London you're gonna find them (Brixton)
    New York, L.A., back to Kingston (Kingston, JA)

    General CommentThese lyrics are all wrong. You can also hear "nuke the motherfuckers" in the chorus.

    General Commentactually it's "All I see is youth fighting". This is such a kickass song, it has a kind of tropical reggae feel with teh steel drums it sounds so good. possibly my favorite song on Life Won't Wait.

    General Commentthis is real pretty. people shouldnt fight cause it doesnt solve anything. that sounds like the most trite and obvious thing anyone could say, but a lot of people dont seem to realize it.

    General CommentIt aint "Nuke the motherfuckers", it cant be. Try "Youth dem are da fightas." (As in: "Youth, them are the fighters.")

    General CommentYeah I can't work that bit out either. It really does sound like "who de motherfucks" but that wouldn't really make sense in the context of the song, plus 'motherfucks' isn't a word. I'm not sure about the other suggestions...it's a bit hard to hear being a backing vocal line...maybe if I separate the tracks...
