Only the people I knew. Very Happy

And on the song itself, finally (had to go have a shite before listening so I wasn't listening and thinking 'man I need a dump') the verdict is a huge thumbs up. I'm liking it ALOT. Especially the yob style chanting. Wooft.

Hello! As far as I can make out (having listened to it about 8 times really fucking loud):

At school, the choices are made for rock 'n' roll bands, who get the good grades
But brains are wearing all black, the sum of these guys is like a red flag
The taste of somebody's fist is not a good vibe or something I've missed
(Not too sure on this one) I was too intimidated, insulting them for what they were, I hope they

Choke! Choke! Choke! Choke!

.....................................? or losing a tooth
But it's not a matter of haste 'cos everywhere, the people don't change

(When I was in New York a woman tried to start a fight with me because she thought I was Jewish. ...............? wrong to tell the truth...........?

I pray to god she chokes!

You're going home in a fucking ambulance! x 4
We're all going home in a fucking ambulance!
????

I saw a man
With blood on his face
From beating up black kids
(I think) I can hardly breathe!

Your race, your faith, just your clothes inside
They drink, they fight, it's not safe out tonight
Your race, your faith, just your clothes inside
They drink, they fight, so don't go out, tonight
Don't.

If your mum and dad
Hit you as a child
I feel sad for you
But that's no excuse for it!
Who says it's OK
To behave in this way
I can't help but feel it's us!

For the sake of our own skin,
We walk away, and it's like we are the same...
That's alright x 10

I wish I
Had the guts
To stand up for myself
?????
?????
Against these fuckers!

Shoot!

My attempt to fix the bit with lots of question marks (good job alex):

Shrugged off the shit of my youth ....... or losing a tooth
But it's not a matter of haste 'cos everywhere, the people don't change

(When I was in New York a woman tried to start a fight with me because she thought I was Jewish. And somehow it felt wrong to tell her the truth: that i wasn't, and I pray to god she CHOKES.

Building and adjusting what we have so far, I'm 100% on MOST of these... (thanks hempy - assaulted, not insulted!)

Not being picky, well I am I suppose, but shouldn't it be some not sum, unless it's a clever play on words.

That's a far more logical job than mine Aidan, putting it all in context and I think it's mostly correct. Good work!
However, there is a bit after the ambulance chanting where Jamie screams something. Any ideas what it is? Or is it just a random vitriolic scream?

In other news, I love these lyrics.

EDIT: Rocksound gave it a 9. But it's more that they say "Reuben have never been this good...in outdoing themselves they've also outdone many of their peers." So their love for it is completely genuine.
