Yeah we're on/rhymes ??? imagine that
All punk rock must move inside, all ??? must move inside.
Come out to Brooklyn Town and Coyote Studios ???

[Repeat x2]
London you're gonna find them
New York, L.A., back to Kingston
All I see is youth fighting
All I see is youth fighting

Well, in sympathy, there's some
Integrity, but in
Humility I've come to find a whole lot more

I'm not one to judge, nor I
Carry a grudge, but I
Refuse to budge my determinating vow

London you're gonna find them (London town)
New York, L.A., back to Kingston (waterhouse)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)

London you're gonna find them (Brixton)
New York, L.A., back to Kingston (Kingston, JA)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)

Come I said put down your ratchet now
Rudeboy set down your gun
L.A., Kingston, New York and London
Move, nobody fight, form together as one
This gun pressure soon be over and done

??? the road controlled by Satan
Fight back from that with love vibration
Pull out, division, racism, and schism
We gonna make 'em flee, run

Easy, you know it ain't easy
Got to make a decision
Got to learn to say no, no, no...

I burn from inside all the walls
A dead man can't hear all the calls
Who lives like a sheep in the city concrete
Never runs deep and dies from the heat

Coppers and hoods, dead man's stood
It ain't no good when you're misunderstood
When you're rotting in jail, wish you would be
Out on the street like Robin Hood

All those who fall, those who try
Let them go, oh victimize
You see you ain't gonna take their power, demise
Not in your lifetime see more hypnotized, come again

London you're gonna find them (London town)
New York, L.A., back to Kingston (Waterhouse)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)


London you're gonna find them (Brixton)
New York, L.A., back to Kingston (Kingston, JA)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)

Come I said put down your ratchet now
Rude boy set down your gun
L.A., Kingston, New York and London
Move, nobody fight, form together as one
This gun pressure soon be over and done

??? the road controlled by Satan
Fight back from that with love vibration
Pull out, division, racism, and schism
We gonna make 'em flee, run

Easy, you know it ain't easy
Got to make a decision
Got to learn to say no, no, no

I burn from inside all the walls
A dead man can't hear all the calls
Who lives like a sheep in the city concrete
Never runs deep and dies from the heat

Heat...heat...heat...heat...

[Repeat x4]
London you're gonna find them (London Town)
New York, L.A., back to Kingston (Kingston, JA)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)
All I see is youth fighting (youth them all they fight)

All I see is you/youth fighting
All I see is you/youth fighting
All I see is you/youth fighting...

    These lyrics are all wrong. You can also hear "nuke the motherfuckers" in the chorus.

    actually it's "All I see is youth fighting". This is such a kickass song, it has a kind of tropical reggae feel with teh steel drums it sounds so good. possibly my favorite song on Life Won't Wait.

    this is real pretty. people shouldnt fight cause it doesnt solve anything. that sounds like the most trite and obvious thing anyone could say, but a lot of people dont seem to realize it.

    It aint "Nuke the motherfuckers", it cant be. Try "Youth dem are da fightas." (As in: "Youth, them are the fighters.")

    Yeah I can't work that bit out either. It really does sound like "who de motherfucks" but that wouldn't really make sense in the context of the song, plus 'motherfucks' isn't a word. I'm not sure about the other suggestions...it's a bit hard to hear being a backing vocal line...maybe if I separate the tracks...

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
“Head > Heels” is a track that aims to capture what it feels like to experience romance that exceeds expectations. Ed Sheeran dedicates his album outro to a lover who has blessed him with a unique experience that he seeks to describe through the song’s nuanced lyrics.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
