Lyrics

All over the country, there's a growing fear
A nation growing up takes a lot of years
Something new is happening
There's a team in every town
The generation slide gets the old folks down

Even the police are breaching the peace
Even the schools teach the wrong rules

I stumbled into Glasgow
I was beaten, I was saved
I was rid of all the shite that they took from me
I did what I could, but I was bleeding hard
I never believed that I would need a sword

Even the police are breaching the peace
Even the schools teach the wrong rules

Across the forth in Fife
There's a battle every week
In Dunfermline or Kirkcaldy
Or in any housing scheme
In Ayrshire and the Borders, the outpatients queues increase
Scotland's sick to a new disease

Even the police are breaching the peace
Even the schools teach the wrong rules
