CHORUS Hate and war
The only thing we got today

An' if I close my eyes
It will not got away
You have to deal with it
It is the currency

Hate, hate, hate

The hate of a nation
A million miles from home
I got war from the junkies
Who don't like my form

I`m gonna stay in the city
Even when the house fall down
I don't dream of a holiday
When hate an' war come around

I have the will to survive
I cheat if I can't win
If someone locks me out
I kick my way back in

An` if I get aggression
I give it two time back
Every day it's just the same
Hate an' war on my back

Hate and War
I hate Englishmen
Hate and War
They're just as bad as wops
Hate and War
I hate all the politeness
Hate and War
I hate all the cops

I wanna walk down any street
Hate and War
All dressed like a creep
Hate and War
I don't care if I get beaten up
Hate and War
By any kebab greek
