Track Name: The Unforgiving Streets
The cold is bad
And winter kills
And the constant damp
The bones chills
No clean clothes
Or water hot
Dirty feet
Holed socks
And it seems a danger is always near
It's second nature to live in fear
On the unforgiving streets

Degradation
On display
Hung up
In this gallery
Move along
Get out of here
Policeman barks
Who sheds a tear
And it seems a danger is always near
It's second nature to live in fear
On the unforgiving streets

On the unforgiving streets all day
The unforgiving streets all night
We all know it is not right
We need to address people's plight
On the unforgiving streets
People live and sleep
On the unforgiving streets

Possessions lost
Just objects
But they were all
That was left
Of the ties
To family
Last vestige
Of normality
And it seems a danger is always near
It's second nature to live in fear
On the unforgiving streets

This is barbaric
What kind of civilisation
Puts up with this degradation
Criminalises instead of helping
With huge swathes of housing stock empty
This is a land of plenty
The most vulnerable
The ones experiencing real hardship
Need help ,real constructive help
This issue should be made to go away by housing people
By offering shelter and protection
These are real people with real lives
Not rubbish to be swept out of sight
