Just give it guns and drugs
And the world is yours
The food we shove right through young jaws
Saying they don't care about politics when it's
Politics that don't care about the kids
Of course they expect you to stay down
That's why they got you gagged up and bound
Why can't they afford to keep the youth clubs,
But they can afford to lock the youth up?
It's bullshit.

What did you create?
Now that we won't wait
With our noses pressed up
Against the glass.

You made clear what we need
But kept it out of reach
You reap what you sow (now we're in control)
Now we'll take what we want
And we'll tear the world apart
Cos we are what we own
Yeah, we are what we own.
We are, we are, we are, we are, we are
We are, we are, we are, we are what we own.
What we own.

They say I'm just an angry man
Yes, I am
I'm angry cos I made the connection
The children of the damned ain't the children of the man
We're born into rejection
And with every demand, we obey their command
We're apart of the disaffection
We understand we got to take it back
If you ain't angry, you ain't paying attention

Before you digress,
I think you best address,
In case, of this,
Ever happening again

You made clear what we need
Kept it out of reach
You reap what you sow (now we're in control)
Now we'll take what we want
And we'll tear the world apart
Cos we are what we own
Yeah, we are what we own.

Well poverty climbs up
And that means the crimes up
Learn from the past - we're best to combine up
Young people, wise up
Poor people, rise up
Ruling class, move over, your time's up
Yeah, could this be our calling?
Our own eyes watching empires falling?
I'd rather die on my feet than crawling
I live by the river while London is brawling.

You can't blame the youth,
When you ain't got no proof
That we didn't learn
Everything from you

You made clear what we need
Kept it out of reach
You reap what you sow (now we're in control)
Now we'll take what we want
And we'll tear the world apart
Cos we are what we own
Yeah, we are what we own.
We are, we are, we are, we are
We are, we are, we are, we are what we own.
What we own.
We are, we are, we are, we are
We are, we are, we are, we are what we own.

We are
What we own.
