White Riot (Encore W/ Mick Jones) (Acton Concert) Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
White riot - I want to riot
White riot - a riot of my own
White riot - I want to riot
White riot - a riot of my own
Verse 2
Black people gotta lot a problems
But they don't mind throwing a brick
White people go to school
Where they teach you how to be thick
Verse 3
An' everybody's doing
Just what they're told to
An' nobody wants
To go to jail!
Verse 4
All the power's in the hands
Of people rich enough to buy it
While we walk the street
Too chicken to even try it
Verse 5
Everybody's doing
Just what they're told to
Nobody wants
To go to jail!
Verse 6
Are you taking over
Or are you taking orders?
Are you going backwards
Or are you going forwards?
