about

Shot One is about the crime carried out by young people in today's society. It tells a story of a young teen cycling around on his BMX in possession of a Gun.
Bocs Social made a low budget video to this song, which tells a more detailed story of a kid who holds up a local shop at gun point for a small amount of cash and some sweets.
With its continuous vocal line and swingy old school ska rhythm, Shot One has been one of the favourites on the album for many people.

lyrics

Shot One another kid holdin a gun
Shot two He aint gonna worry about you
Shot three a product of this society
shot four another kid dead on the floor

think back... when you were just 15
had nothin to worry about except gettin seen....
smokin a cigarette or lighting a fuse
or finding the Sun was never bought for it's news

and Time and time and time again
Clubbin together with all of your friends
5 pounds and 6 dutch Gold well its a life of a kid with no fear of gettin old ......

Shot One another kid holdin a gun
Shot two He aint gonna worry about you
Shot three a product of this society
shot four another kid dead on the floor.

BANG BANG .... as the barrel gets hot
he once was livin but now he's not
he makes a get away on a BMX ..you watch out out for this boy he gives as good as he gets
he's only a child in our eyes
but he's seen too much and heard too many lies
so he goes out with his gun in hand , its not temporary madness cos he's got it all planned ...

Shot One another kid holdin a gun
Shot two He aint gonna worry about you
Shot three a product of this society
shot four another kid dead on the floor.

shot 4 ....... shot 4.... shot 4.... shot 4 .........

he doesnt care who gets hurt
he's pickin up the pieces he's face down in the dirt
so what happens to a boy like that
no fear of retrobution or a knife in his back
he'll do it for money , he'll do it for spite
he doesnt even wait for the cover of night
I feel sorry for a wasted life , do we look inwards
is this our fight .....

Shot One another kid holdin a gun
Shot two He aint gonna worry about you
Shot three a product of this society X 2
shot four another kid dead on the floor.
