Blue Light Brigade (Festival of Fights) ( W.Sony )

lyric:
Blue light Brigade
not another cavalcade
to knock you off your bike
as they jump a red light
or beat you to the ground
like a dog
to the sound
of the sirens
and the violence
unleashed
when you express your outrage
_______
Found sound:
crowd singing “dubula ibhunu” ( kill the boers / farmers )
leader ANC Youth League singing the same
TV presenter: what are you so nervous of (shoot to kill)
Youth League spokesman: fuck you man (shoot to kill)
say again (shoot to kill)
I said fuck you (shoot to kill)
what are you so nervous of (shoot to kill)
fuck off ok …what is your problem (shoot to kill)
what are you so nervous of (shoot to kill)
I've got no problem I just want to speak with…
aaah fuck you (shoot to kill)
fuck off_____
