Verse 1
Hold me on this night of the long knives
Hold me on this night of the long knives
It's coming (Shame about your neighborhood)
It's coming (Shame about your neighborhood)
Verse 2
There's a flood on the street, there's a tide and it's coming in now
Yet the concrete burns at the back of your skull
And they're saying it's a wave but it feels like a dribbling now
There's a light bulb flickering but it never goes on
Verse 3
Yes the bomb may be falling
In the lies where you stood
Man I know it's a real big shame about your neighborhood
I'm the wrong kind of people
Why'd you listen to me?
Just the island of breathing in and out
Verse 4
And it was a long time coming
It was a long time coming
Verse 5
It's coming (Shame about your neighborhood)
It's coming (Shame about your neighborhood)
Verse 6
There's a car overturned and it isn't stopping anytime soon
But the front seat sure beats lickin' some toads
And the sparks make the dark uncanny like a living cartoon
What the hell do you mean when you talk about roads?
Verse 7
Yes the bomb may be falling
Vaporized where you stood
Man I know it's a real big shame about your neighborhood
I'm the wrong kind of people
Why'd you listen to me?
Just the island of breathing in and out
Verse 8
And it was a long time coming
It was a long time coming
Verse 9
It's coming (shame about your neighborhood)
It's coming (shame about your neighborhood)
Verse 10
Hold me on this night of the long knives
Hold me on this night of the long knives
I've been dying all my life
I've been dying all my life
I've been dying all my life
I've been dying all my life
Verse 11
It's coming (shame about your neighborhood)
It's coming (shame about your neighborhood)
It's coming (it was a long time coming)
It's coming (it was a long time coming)
