Blackout Problems – The City Won’t Sleep Tonight Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Step outside where
Dull scissors could cut the air
Something’s wrong here
The people’s voice is in despair
The papers write about us
TV talk about us
But the fact is:
They never listen to us
On his golden chair
The king is scared
The empire falls we’ve been savely prepared

[Pre-Chorus]
You’ve build it brick by brick
You’ll see me spit on it
You should hope to get out
Hope to get out alive

[Chorus]
The city won’t sleep tonight (not tonight, not tonight)
We riot all over town
All over town tonight
The city won’t sleep tonight (not tonight, not tonight)
We riot all over town
All over town tonight
The city won’t sleep tonight

[Verse 2]
Brother take care
The biggest cross is the hardest to bear
I have been there
I know this fight is far from fair
I’ve seen the envy, the greed
Seen the blood on the street
Seen the madness
Of the kings and the queens
The chair was spotted
At lost and found
We shook the earth
And we stood our ground

[Pre-Chorus]
You’ve build it brick by brick
You’ll see me spit on it
You should hope to get out
Hope to get out alive

[Chorus]
The city won’t sleep tonight (not tonight, not tonight)
We riot all over town
All over town tonight
The city won’t sleep tonight (not tonight, not tonight)
We riot all over town
All over town tonight
The city won’t sleep tonight

[Bridge]
We paint the sky blue
We paint the streets red
We paint the sky blue
Fight us, we fight back
We paint the sky blue
We paint the streets red
We paint the sky blue
Fight us, we fight back

[Pre-Chorus]
You’ve build it brick by brick
You’ll see me spit on it
You should hope to get out
Hope to get out alive

[Chorus]
The city won’t sleep tonight (not tonight, not tonight)
We riot all over town
All over town tonight
The city won’t sleep tonight (not tonight, not tonight)
We riot all over town
All over town tonight
The city won’t sleep tonight

[Outro]
Fight us, we fight back
Fight us, we fight back
Fight us, we fight back
