down in the city lyrics – generators

it roars like a lion
the sound of the streets
rats in the alleyway,
lapd on the beat
life in the sewers
living h*ll
go ask the junkie
going blue
at the alexandria hotel
down down down
in the city!
down down down
in the city!
the prost*tute she strolls
on broadway
in the eyes of the killer
she the oncoming prey
knock on her door,
welcome the virus
its hiv, herpes
and hepat*tis
forgotten faces
and forgotten names
another poor b*st*rd
pleading for change
the crack pipes light up
like a candle vigilance
the angels cry
down on the streets
of los angeles
