Lyrics:

They're turn­ing out the lights
In good old London town
Destroying all our memories
Look hard they're still around
All grown up and gentrified
But still built up on lies
Our his­tory being kicked aside
Replaced by high­er rise

Steel and glass predominate
This urb­an gentrify
Rip the very heart out
City life about to die
Killing of our culture
This gov­ern­ment deny
Those born and bred
Priced out instead
They struggle to survive

We don't need no…
Gentrification
We all live here after all
I've seen the writ­ing on the wall
That this city's about to fall
Fall, fall, fall…

Rise!
Rise up for me tonight!
Rise!
Rise, rise up for me tonight!
Rise!
Rise, rise up for me tonight!
Rise!
Rise, rise up for me tonight!

All gentri­fied and formalised
It's heart ripped from the core
Turned out the lights, but kept the sights
The tour­ists clam­our for
They're build­ing for the sake of it
Fills bankers pock­ets more
And they're killing London's culture
Like they nev­er have before

Approved the demolition
But you'll nev­er take us down
Took a feath­er from old moth­er cap
But you will nev­er steal her crown
You lied to us so many times
But we are organised
This is our day of reckoning
Together we're unified

Steel and glass predominate
This urb­an gentrify
Rip the very heart out
City life about to die
Killing of our culture
This gov­ern­ment deny
Those born and bred
Priced out instead
They struggle to survive

We don't need no…
Gentrification
We all live here after all
I've seen the writ­ing on the wall
That this city's about to fall
Fall, fall, fall…

Rise!
Rise up for me tonight!
Rise!
Rise, rise up for me tonight!
Rise!
Rise, rise up for me tonight!
Rise!
Rise, rise up for me tonight!

All gentri­fied and formalised
It's heart ripped from the core
Turned out the lights, but kept the sights
The tour­ists clam­our for
They're build­ing for the sake of it
Fills bankers pock­ets more
And they're killing London's culture
Like they nev­er have before

We don't need no…
Gentrification
'Cause we are people…
Not experimentation

Rise!
Rise up for me tonight!
Rise!
Rise, rise up for me tonight!
Rise!
Rise, rise up for me tonight!
Rise!
Rise, rise up for me tonight!

Rise!
Watch every­body rise!
They tell us fuck­ing lies!
Watch every­body rise!
Rise!
(We don't need no)
Watch every­body rise!
(We don't need no)
They tell us fuck­ing lies!
(We don't need no)
Watch every­body rise!
(We don't need no)
We don't need no
(Rise!)
We don't need no
(Watch every­body rise!)
We don't need no
We don't need no
Gentrification…
