How hard my people will blow and blow?
This temple wall come tumbling down!
How far my people will grow and grow?
This city come tumbling down!

We hammered on a rock
When Jericho was stone
Make them take care of the rocks
You don't know what I know
Gotta defend that city
With ammunition, live ammunition

How hard my people will blow and blow?
The wall come tumbling down!
How far my people will grow and grow?
This city, falling down!

[...]
Nobody notices us
Dying!
Nobody notices children crying
Ain't no grave to
Lie in!

We hammered on a rock
When Jericho was stone
Make them take care of the rocks
You don't know what I know
Gotta defend that city
With ammunition, live ammunition

How hard my people will blow and blow?
City wall, come tumbling down!
How far my people will grow and grow?
City wall, come falling down!

[...]
Ain't no grave to
Lie in!
Nobody noticed as I was dying
Ain't no space to
Lie in!

I hope and I know
People gonna defend that city
With ammunition, live ammunition

How far my people will blow and blow?
The city wall, come tumbling down!
How far my people will grow and grow?
To make this world [...]

(lyrics of November 1983 rehearsal version)
(n.b.: Joe sings totally different lyrics to the above two verses on the Glasgow 'Patriots of the Wasteland' boot (which seem to be about "fighting Thatcher"!)
