【前奏】
Across the lines
Who would dare to go
Under the bridge
Over the tracks That separates whites from blacks

Choose sides
Run for your lifes
Tonight the riots begin

On the back streets of America
They kill the dream of America

〔间奏〕
Little black girl gets assaulted
Ain't no reason why
Newspaper prints the story
And racist tempers fly
Next day it starts a riot
Knives and guns are drawn
Two black boys get killed
One white boy goes blind

Across the lines
Who would dare to go
Under the bridge
Over the tracks That separates whites from blacks

Choose sides
Run for your lifes
Tonight the riots begin

On the back streets of america
They kill the dream of america

〔间奏〕
Little black girl gets assaulted
Don't no one know her name
Lots of people hurt and angry
She's the one to blame

Across the lines
Who would dare to go
Under the bridge
Over the tracks That separates whites from blacks

Choose sides
Run for your lifes
Tonight the riots begin

On the back streets of america
They kill the dream of america

〔尾奏〕
