Neighbourhood watch, forever on the look
Neighbourhood watch, yet it’s never understood
What exactly is meant by this crazy idea?
When all to see around us is people living in fear
False concepts of a world in harmony
Is never echoed by what goes on down on our streets

Neighbourhood Watch
Always a lie
Neighbourhood Watch
Brings a tear to my eye
In a world of suffering and pain
Neighbourhood Watch
Can’t stop the bombs on the train

You feel secure, but it won’t last for long
‘cos neighbourhood watch falls through in this song
If you think the madmen, that destroy our humanity
Are gonna listen, to a few signs on the street
We got the right idea, but it just won’t succeed
Since peace and unity succumb to evil mentality


I’d really love to say, that the situation will change
But I just can’t see it happening with our freedom so estranged
We’re crying over circumstances to do with evil and hate
Drowning in all our sorrows, leaving misery as our fate
Lets all hold together, and prove it can be done
Get up and move your feet, and we’ll catch them on the run…

    General CommentThis song is about the ridiculousness of the term "neighbourhood watch". Walking around the town and seeing the familiar sign of a policeman and some citizens in the little yellow box, I stopped and thought to myself "what does this actually mean?" The answer is NOTHING. If some crazy person decides to burgal someone, they're gonna do it. On a wider scale, if a nation is going to go and bomb another nation, they're gonna get on with it. It doesn't matter how much we all look out for each other - even tho' it's a nice thought, and it's what we SHOULD be doing - unfortunately, you can't stop the evil that posseses some people's minds. We all stick together, but those individuals that spoil it for everyone else, and refuse to stick to societys rules, will have a lasting effect because they're the ones that have the most profound effect.
