​A Burning Cocktail in a Murdering Ghetto

This song is by Beng Beng Cocktail, features Ghetto Blaster and appears on the album From The Swallow To The Bottle (2009).

Sirens ring out on this late night scene
The strong are left fighting while the wounded scream
No I don't have American dreams
'Cause I'm awake and my eyes they see
Light a match and start the flame
Concentrated anger has now been aimed
At those who spread the pain
We all know who's to blame

My eyes see what you've tried to hide
All the things that you've denied
Now you watch as the flames glow
A burning cocktail in a murdering ghetto
You leave us here to off our own
You've watched our power and numbers grow
As you sit there on your thrown
As the fire engulfs and the city glows

Antagonist, hit and miss, end up with a broken fist
Passivised, broken chin, cause you don't know how to fight and win
Stupid shit forced to live with on a daily basis
We're all alive, but we're all deprived
Of a life that we're all entitled to
They only care about themselves they don't care about you
So you may be safe while the lights are around
But you better hope to god they don't go down

Have you forgotten your guts in my town?
What else you have lost man before you have turned around?
Your cowardice have plagued my entire ground
Ghetto is a mad kingdom raped by the fantasy you have settled down
Have you fucking intended to get me from behind?
Since I have swallowed things out coming from your lies
Creeping in my breathing space and making me feel paralysed
Would you once be my guest and see truth from inside?

My eyes see what you've tried to hide
All the things that you've denied
Now you watch as the flames glow
A burning cocktail in a murdering ghetto
You leave us here to off our own
You've watched our power and numbers grow
As you sit there on your thrown
As the fire engulfs and the city glows

We've got our weapon and we're ready to throw
A burning cocktail in a murdering ghetto
