Crime affects me and crime affects you

It’s us versus them, this much is true

So what are we going to do?

Stay home and hide

While the criminals walk around with pride

While families hold their heads and cry

Asking God why, oh why, did he have to die?


We can’t sit around anymore feeling blue

There is only so much one person can do,

But if we unite we could win this fight

No more fear and no more fright

Wondering if you’ll survive the night


We must band together and protect each other

This crime thing is no laughing matter

Talking done,

The criminals have had their fun

Time for them to put down the guns

We need peace

So let’s clean up the streets
