They're coming with their guns
And they're coming with their bombs
Coming with their knives, coming for our lives
Coming with a war, who knows what they're fighting for
We demonise the youth instead of telling them the truth

...And the truth is
We don't want to share it
And the problem with the youth is
We don't teach them to share it

They see us penalise people for moving on
Building up borders where there ought to be none
We took all the money and all the power
So the problem's not them, it's probably ours

Twenty houses on my street
Four floors high and empty
Where is it that they don't fit?
The truth is they don't want to share it

...And that's what the truth is
We don't want to share it
And the problem with the youth is
We don't teach them to share it
When the only solution is
Learning to share it
But it seems the truth is
We don't want to share it

We demonise the youth
Instead of telling them the truth
Now they're coming with a war
Who knows what they're fighting for?
They're coming for the money
And they're coming for the money
And they're coming for the power
Now the problem's not them
The problem is ours...

And the truth is
We don't want to share it
And the only solution is
Learning to share it

They're coming for the money
Coming for the power
Coming for the money and the power
