The Lyrics Are Below

Ghetto Defendant

 

Starved in Magalopolis

Hooked on Megalopolis

Addict of Metropolis

Do the worm on Metropolis

Slam dance Cosmopolis

Enlighten the populace

 

Hungry darkness of living

Who will thirst in the pit?

She spent a life-time deciding

How to run from it

Once fate had a witness

And the years seemed like friends

Her babies can dream

But dreams begin like the end

 

CHORUS

 

Ghetto defendant it is heroin pity

Not tear gas nor baton charge

That stops you taking the city

 

Walled out of the city

Clubbed down from uptown

Sprayed pest fromhe nest

Run out of barrio town

Forced to watch at the feast

Then sweep up the night

Flipped pieces of coin

Exchanged for birthright

 

CHORUS

 

The ghetto prince of gutter poets

Was bounced out of the room

By the bodyguards of greed

For disturbing the tomb

His words like flamethrowers

Burnt the ghettos in their chests

His face was painted whiter

And he was laid to rest

 

CHORUS

 

Soap floods oil in water

All churnin' the wake

And on the great ship of progress

The crew can't find the break

Klaxons are blaring

The admiral snores command

Submarines boil in oceans while

The armies fight with suns

 

CHORUS

 

Iron serenity

Shot into eternity

Strung out committee

The senator is witty

The guards are itchy

Guatemala, Honduras, Poland, 100 Years War

TV re-runningvision, death squad, Salvador

Afghanistan mediation, old Chinese flu

Kick junk, what else can a poor worker do?
