I went into a bar one night,
And I saw this girl
And she was absolutely gorgeous

So I finished off my pint
And I tried looking cool
And then I’m whacked in the back
By a guy playing pool

The DJ's playing shit
But I know I’ve got to dance
Cos this girl I’m eyeing up
Keeps on giving me a glance

So I push through the crowd
I try and get a little closer
Try and start a conversation
I think I’ve got a mate who knows her

But halfway through the bar
It seems I’ve caught someone's attention
And it’s not the kind you crave
Not the kind you’d like to mention

It’s the kind of look
That shits you up
In so many different ways
It’s the size of his eyes
And he won’t give up
Transfixed with a piercing gaze
I can get the gist
This guy’s pissed
And if I don’t move
He’ll use his fists
See that the violence stops
See that the violence stops

But this girl keeps looking over
And I might just have a chance
So I cling to my four-leaf clover
And I carry on trying to dance

I feel a tap on my shoulder
And for some reason turn round
His head feels like a boulder
And it knocks me to the ground

The room had started spinning
And my mouth filled up with blood
I saw him stood there grinning
And did the only thing that I could

I crawled down the road for a taxi
And the taste in my mouth was rancid
And who’s in the queue before me?
Some guy with that girl I fancied

The next thing I heard was sirens
And there was nothing for me to gain
I was fed up of all this violence
And his image was trapped in my brain

It’s the kind of look
That shits you up
In so many different ways
It’s the size of his eyes
And he won’t give up
Transfixed with a piercing gaze
I can get the gist
This guy’s pissed
And if I don’t move
He’ll use his fists
See that the violence stops
See that the violence stops

So I get home and I’m cleaning my mouth
And it looks like I’m gunna need stitches
But just like a typical bloke
The first thing I do is take pictures

So it takes them all night but it’s sorted
And the next job’s to go to the cops
I’ll make sure that bastard’s reported
And see that the violence stops
And see that the violence stops
And see that the violence stops
And see that the violence stops
Stop.

It’s the kind of look
That shits you up
In so many different ways
It’s the size of his eyes
And he won’t give up
Transfixed with a piercing gaze
I can get the gist
This guy’s pissed
And if I don’t move
He’ll use his fists
See that the violence stops
See that the violence stops

It’s the kind of look
That shits you up
In so many different ways
It’s the size of his eyes
And he won’t give up
Transfixed with a piercing gaze
I can get the gist
This guy’s pissed
And if I don’t move
He’ll use his fists
See that the violence stops
See that the violence stops

And See that the violence stops
And See that the violence stops

And See that the violence stops
And See that the violence stops
