Crank City Lyrics – The City it Lives

Fresh sharpened nails scratch the pattern of a brain down the back of a sweaty old man

A gun goes hail hail Mary in the alley outside where a good deal that has gone bad

 

THE CITY IT LIVES, JUST FOR IT. x4

 

Cold-cocked kid with a gold tooth lookin up wit eyes that burn through

Kill kill kill him if ya wanna cause killins not the worst that you can do…

 

THE CITY LIVES, JUST FOR IT. X4

 

Downtown gone by the wayside, good girls get taken back by night…

I know. you know. we know. you know better than to come here after dark.

Too late. Too late. To turn around, now. Staunchin blood in front of a shark.

Let’s go. Let’s go. Let’s go. ‘fore there’s nothing left to find.

I know. you know. we know. you know. that it’s safer on our side.

Downtown gone by the wayside. Good girls get taken back by the night…

Bridge:

 

Just to drown your voice in a holy chorus x8

 

THE CITY IT LIVES JUST FOR IT,

JUST TO DROWN YOUR VOICE IN A HOLY CHORUS x2

THE CITY IT LIVES JUST FOR IT.x8.
