lyrics

Oakland on ice
cool down
the rich guys
market's too hot
someone blew up our spot
I was down at the bottom
lower bottom
among the flotsam
jetsetters upset
the good things we had got
don't forgot
the ship is ghosting likes most of 'em
purple headdresses all messed up with ashes
fat assets
bouncing asses at a warehouse party
that's we
we are in cars loaned to us by grandmas
what gives
forgive the city
she knows nothing
thoroughly lost in it
pretending still has its perks
don't be a jerk
this chicken is picking up too many adjectives on its way to work
I remember Fort
not the best but it was it
before the split
privileged peach pits
cess pool of drunk drool
don't see it with lights down
kids drown happy ecstatically
yesterly in the west
