London’s Burning

I will not stand by and watch my beloved city burn

I will stand strong with my community

And against the thugs

This is not about free speech

Not about protest

Not about being let down by the system

This is about mindless opportunism

Which has grown into a mob-mentality monster

I will not stand by and watch my beloved city burn

I will arm myself with pride, bin bags and rubber gloves

I will help in the cleanup anyway I can

And I’ll do it everyday until the thugs get the message

The city is not yours to loot and burn

It is ours to rebuild and cherish

I will not stand by and watch my beloved city burn
