All Around the Town - Lyrics

Oh we all know someone
Who's infected by the pain
Guns, drugs and violence
They all do much the same
????
????
????
????
I find it hard to read the paper
Nightmares becoming real
Young people are dying their parents are crying
Some parents don't understand

Oh all around the town
And the shots get fired and another man's down
All around the town
And a knife gets pulled and another child's down
All around the town
And the parents weep and their tears stay drowned
All around the town
A young paddy's lowered in to the ground

????

We have armed police standing on our streets
Our people can't comprehend
It's a reassurance a self assurance
What choices do we have today
And the people in power are up on the rise
To see what they have done
With the marginalisation cultural deprivation
Prevention is better than cure
Building concrete cascades of urban jungles
You get no one away

Oh all around the town
And the shots get fired and another man's down
All around the town
And a knife gets pulled and another child's down
All around the town
And the parents weep and their tears stay drowned
All around the town
A young paddy's lowered in to the ground

The devil makes work for idle hands
People still wonder why so many fans
Are banning generations destroying the nation
I can barely watch cause it hurts
And as the virus gets closer to your door
You prevent your neighbour your son no more
And you feel it like a mist as it greets the streets
Sirens there in your heart it meets
Bullets wiz through the night
And all my childhood home 'till night

Oh all around the town
And the shots get fired and another man's down
All around the town
And a knife gets pulled and another child's down
All around the town
And the parents weep and their tears stay drowned
All around the town
A young paddy's lowered in to the ground

Oh all around the town
And the shots get fired and another man's down
All around the town
And a knife gets pulled and another child's down
All around the town
And the parents weep and their tears stay drowned
All around the town
A young paddy's lowered in to the ground
