lyrics

ny's hotter and harder hardly any grass to spare
but the controllers don't even go outside
they don't even fucking care
my friends 'scaping to montana
find family there
but i'm stuck here for too long
choking on (enter teddy bears name here) poisoned subway air

trash and vaudeville stud collar it's two bros one dollar you shit talk my crew and I'll steal your fifty dollars cuz I'm robin hood on easter sixth and seconds where I'll spend it have a little feaster head to tompkins where I blend in and we're 20 deep we're jumping singing show tunes on the train, pissing between cars peach four loco is to blame and freedom equals sunshine that's all chris was trying to say and now I'm blacking out in bushwick cause my favorite squat is gay.

Ray kelly that scumbag he ruined favorite slab at eight am his piggies came and tried to arrest you and raz but we drank a 40 by the churchyard we needed more we went to saint marks so if your rolling a spliff then pass it to the left and if you talk to the pigs then you don't got my respect and if your rolling a spliff pass it to the left and if you talk to the pigs then you don't have my respect.

I can see cigarettes from space and we're doing so much more than living in this space so film this write that maybe it won't be lost to time immemorial my mark is made of teeth and blood dried in your hair as we pulled away I came back and kissed your rage slammed my face against a stoop to all nighters lead to random strangers are kinder but it's so much more personal when your mean.
