Another new construction site · Another brigthly polished building
Another affordable housing space made way for higher profits

Displacement and evictions it’s past all recognition
This once lovely neighbourhood seems like riddled with cancer

Do you really want to live in a city like this?
Me, for my part, it makes me sick
If this whole city will be in flames someday
I sit back and laugh but I won‘t shed a tear

Another exclusive shop opening · Another trendy chain store arises
Another closed down corner shop which is no longer competitive

Public space gets cut back, disturbing elements get banned
Where once the culture was blooming there’s only sterility left
