The Death Of A Goth
Hip-hop gangsters playing on the swings
Schoolboys planning their way into the big time
Make a hit record or rob a bank
Whichever comes easier

Defend your territory at all costs
This is our playground
Outsiders are not welcome
Along comes a goth with girlfriend by his side

Dressed in black with jet black hair
Talking to each other about nothing in particular
Different cultures about to clash
The hip-hop gangsters see the couple and start shouting
"Clear off you freaks, we don't want you around here"

The young couple are taken aback
They feel a little frightened
The tension is high
"Kill the goths" they shout in unison
And the gang start to chase the goths

They catch up with the young lad and knock him to the ground
They start to kick him and beat him
His body is being broken into pieces
His girlfriend cries for help but nobody comes

She starts to try and stop the hip-hop gangsters
She tries to pull them off but they start on her instead
She falls to the ground and her head hits the concrete slabs
The gangsters kick and scream

A gangland beating marking out territory
They are laughing and joking as the girl drifts from consciousness
She is close to death
Two or more blows will finish the job

Her boyfriend is crying and screaming
There is nothing he can do
She is dead now
No way back

"You should have left me to die"
The young lad cries out in sheer desolation
So many lives destroyed by an act of violence
A dark shadow has been cast on so many lives

The gangsters will spend their days in jail
And the goth girl's friends will learn to cope with their grief
She will be remembered by those who knew her
Killed for being an outsider
Will we ever learn to live in harmony with our neighbours
And accept others for who they are?
