lyrics

Some can't escape, some never should
Some would burn this city down, if they only could
Other people say that they're misunderstood
But these are just the people of my neighborhood

Unattended children living on my block
Kickin' bullet casings in the parking lot
Been a few days since the last gunshot
Here people act like dogs when the weather's hot
See the cop cars on the way downtown
Listen to the rhythm of the wailing sound
Slippin' down the alley like a wounded hound
And seeping to the sewers of the underground.

You should think twice 'fore you come around
At night this city turns into a battleground
People get lost and are never found
along these boulevards when the sun goes down
Take a look around and tell me what you see
A sea of never-ending opportunity
For hookers on the corner slinging STDs
To folks who can't afford to buy the remedies

These dead-end streets are not the only life I know
I lived different life so many years ago
But so much time has passed that now I call them home
Look out now cuz' here we go!


Some can't escape, some never should
Some would burn this city down, if they only could
Other people say that they're misunderstood
But these are just the people of my neighborhood

Been a long time, but I ain't forgot
Coming back home to a busted lock
Had to think twice 'fore I called the cops
I learned that lesson once from the school of hard knocks
Take a look around, tell me what you see
Sea of never-ending opportunity
For pushers on the corner slingin' PCP
To folks who hit the streets to buy their remedies


These dead-end streets are not the only life I know
I lived different life so many years ago
But so much time has passed that now I call them home
Look out now cuz' here we go!


Some can't escape, some never should
Some would burn this city down, if they only could
Other people say that they're misunderstood
But these are just the people of my neighborhood


(Lyrics by Wes Tanenbaum)
