Neighbourhood

Did you get that on camera?
Did you get the money shot?
Don’t you feel safe now?
Watch and be watched.

The neighbourhood watches, it doesn’t trust its own
The neighbourhood watches, it doesn’t trust itself

What are the doing next door?
What are they building in there?
The scarf obscures her black eyes
The colour of bombs.

He’s hanging round the playground
I take good care of my kids
Why has he got a camera
When none of them are his?

The neighbourhood watches, it doesn’t trust itself
The neighbourhood watches, it doesn’t trust its own
It doesn’t trust itself, it doesn’t trust its own
It eats itself, it eats its own
It eats its own, it eats its young.
