You are now entering a free zone
August 69, the gauntlet has been thrown
The young fleet shall never be at peace
They're marching in the towns
There's riots in the street

You are now entering a free zone
August 69, the gauntlet has been thrown
The young free shall never be at peace
They're marching in the towns
There's riots in the street

Rain, rain, rocks and bombs
The (odyssey?), the gas and guns
The voices that are fighting to be heard
In defense of their lives and homes
Barricades, the bombs explode
Hurling stones as the fires burn

And in the bogside, fire fills the sky
Protect your way of life, the time is now

Women and children scream,
Witness to atrocities
Hope and Tears fill the air
Molotov cocktails fly,
The city is occupied
Unrest arises everywhere

And in the bogside, fire fills the sky
Protect your way of life, the time is now
The time is now

Now as I walk the streets
The bugles called out to me
The tragedies, the victories, the pain

In the end the truth was heard
Life lived on their own terms
Singin now never again

And in the bogside, voices filled the sky
As the people cried,
Never again
Never again
Never again
Never again

You are now entering a free zone
