"Modern Mafia" as written by and Timothy John Wanstall Carey Suthon Willetts....
Tell me something I don't know
'cause we've been there ten times before
Make it up as we go along
In so deep it can't be wrong
It's obvious that

This is modern mafia
They're scared of us; they're scared of us
It's time for us to redefine
So fix your eyes, fix your eyes
This is modern mafia
They're scared of us; they're scared of us
I don't want to be on my own
I need a home, I need a home

There's a look in your eye
Dancing like a samurai
In silence you're still listening
'cause somewhere something's happening
It's obvious that

This is modern mafia
They're scared of us; they're scared of us
It's time for us to redefine
So fix your eyes, fix your eyes
This is modern mafia
They're scared of us; they're scared of us
I don't want to be on my own
I need a home, I need a home

This is modern mafia
They're scared of us; they're scared of us
It's time for us to redefine
So fix your eyes, fix your eyes
This is modern mafia
They're scared of us; they're scared of us
I don't want to be on my own
I need a home, I need a home

This is modern mafia
They're scared of us; they're scared of us
It's time for us to redefine
So fix your eyes, fix your eyes

    General CommentPossibly this is about some sort of relationship that the writer is in - and although he wants to settle down ("I need a home, I need a home, I don't want to be on my own"), the relationship is dangerous in some sense. Eg emotionally damaging; even the "mafia" are "scared of us" - and we know how emotionally/physically damaging the mafia can be.

    He compares his lover to a "samurai"; again, very attractive, but potentially damaging, ruthless and dangerous. It's like he can't get out of the relationship, he's addicted to it, but he knows nothing good will come out of it. That's why he suggests "it's time for us to redefine"; change the relationship so it's beneficial for both of them instead of damaging (Fix your eyes probably refers to the look in her eyes like a samurai) - maybe be beautiful, but don't be so ruthless?

    Any other opinions?
