Lyrics
:

You know they're trying to take my life away 
You know they're gonna make us fade
On every corner I can see them there
They know my name, I don't know them
They're after you with their promises 
Promises of love
They're after you with some forms to sign 
Sign my life away

For living in the backstreets 
That's our home from home
The painted walls are all we've  known 
�The Guns Forever' that's our battle cry
It is the flag that we fly so high 
And every day they try and drag us down
(Drag us down and down)
I cry with anger I have done no crime
(Yeah, yeaoh)

Sixty-eight Guns will never die
Sixty-eight Guns our battle cry
Sixty-eight Guns will never die
Sixty-eight Guns our battle cry
Sixty-eight Guns
Sixty-eight Guns
Oh, the Sixty-eight

They think they know about our life alone
From broken homes to broken phones
They try to harm us with their sticks and stones
They know the names
They'll break our bones
They're after you with their promises 
Promises of love
They're after you 
To sign your life away

(Yeah, yeaoh)

Sixty-eight Guns will never die
Sixty-eight Guns our battle cry
Sixty-eight Guns will never die
Sixty-eight Guns our battle cry
Sixty-eight Guns
Sixty-eight Guns
Oh, the Sixty-eight

Up on the terrace
I hear the crows roar
Sixty-eight Guns

Down in the subways
I hear them whisper
Sixty-eight Guns

Sixty-eight Guns!

Sixty-eight Guns will never die
Sixty-eight Guns our battle cry
Sixty-eight Guns will never die
Sixty-eight Guns our battle cry
Sixty-eight Guns
Sixty-eight Guns
Oh, the Sixty-eight
