This Is War

The lovers and the ne’er do wells the fakers and the wastrels
Thrown together in this filth and fighting for survival
The dancers and the chancers and the ones to be avoided
The thinkers and the drinkers and the downright disappointed

The winners and the sinners, the broken and the tragic
The losers and the bruisers and the frantically romantic
The soon to be somebodies, the fallen and the has-beens
The witty pretty city kids, the ravers of the new scene

This is life and this is war
This is us we’re fighting for
This is London, this is now
We’ve all got something that we’re fighting for
This is war

The rushing and the pushing this old town it pulls ‘em to it
The highways and the byways and the river running through it
The brick and mud is in my blood, we know each others secrets
Well never shall I be untrue and never shall I leave it

This is life, this is war
This is us we’re fighting for
This is London, this is now
We’ve all got something that we’re fighting for
This is war

Raise your cannons, raise your colours
Flash against the sky above us
Fight the fight, the fight we live with
Keep your wits about you

This is war
This is London, this is now
This is war
A siren sounds a wake up call
This is war
London bridge is falling down
This is war
