There’s a raid going on in the East side of the city
There’s a raid going on, the boys ain’t showing no pity
Down on the waterfront there’s shooting and there’s killing
Down on the city streets the blood it is spilling

The boys, they’re running, stealing and burning
The innocent are lying, screaming and dying
There’s nowhere to run, you can’t get away
Another street fight happens every day

There’s a raid going on down in the city
There’s a raid going on

Darkness all around me, blinding my view
I don’t know where I’m going, I’m dazed and confused
I’ve struggled for a long time to get back on my feet
Every single effort ending in defeat

It’s hard but I’m trying, there ain’t no way out of here
I’m in a maze full of door ways, only one will take me clear
Which one is the right one, they all seem the same
Which one is the right one to get me out of here

There’s a raid going on down in the city
There’s a raid going on, the boys ain’t showing no pity
There’s a raid going on, we’re coming on through
There’s a raid going on, we got a raid on you

There’s a raid going on down in the city
There’s a raid going on

Fighting on forever, I guess that’s what I choose
Someday I’m gonna make it, I’ll never think I’ll lose
Don’t know me down for trying, I guess that’s all I got
There ain’t no denying I’m never gonna stop

There’s a raid going on down in the cuty
A raid going on, the boys ain’t showing no pity
Darkness all around me, blinding my view
I don’t know where I’m going, I’m dazed and confused
I’ve struggled for a long time to get back on my feet
Every single effort ending in defeat

There’s a raid going on down in the city
There’s a raid going on, the boys ain’t showing no pity
There’s a raid going on, we’re coming on through
There’s a raid going on, we got a raid on you, and you, and you, and you
