"State of Emergency" as written by and David Robert Hinds....
State of emergency
State of emergency
State of emergency
State of emergency
Emergency

Ready, aim, fire
From Brixton to cape town
Unrest all around
From Handsworth to Uitenhage
Lawlessness on the rampage
Sticks and stones they're throwing
Set ablaze the buildings
Youthful minds are stirring
Time to make a change
Who they think they're fooling
No want no diverse doctrine
Forever we will strive
Fighting against apartheid

State of emergency
Never seen such urgency
State of emergency
Never seen such urgency

Forever we will strive
I never seen a thing like this before

How long can this go on
A riding riding ride the storm
Me tired me tired
Of being a stepping stone
To hell with words
And give me action
Sticks and stones they're throwing
Set ablaze the buildings
Youthful minds are stirring
Time to make a change
Who they think they're fooling
No want no diverse doctrine
Forever we will strive
Fighting against apartheid

State of emergency
Never seen such urgency
State of emergency
Never seen such urgency

Forever we will strive
The whole wide world is burning
Forever we will strive
Pring pring gun shot ring
From Brixton to cape town
Unrest all around
From Handsworth to Durban
No satisfaction

We will strive for freedom now
We will strive for freedom now
We will strive for freedom now
We will strive for freedom now
