Granny Steps (Living With Lions)

On the side walk I walk home tonight On the side walk I walk every day. I see faces scarred with a crooked bite Forty dollars will get you fucked all night. So close to home I could take my pick Friends on every corner. Silhouettes in the doorways Sold to this city. Down, down, downtown is barely breathing. Down, down, downtown is alive and barely holding on Is a lie, alone crawling up my front steps to my front door. Beaten down, written off, case closed, Turn around and get your dick sucked. You say take out the garbage, I say who's more fucked. Who sees what I see. Who's listening. Down, down, downtown is alive and barely holding on Is a lie, alone crawling up my front steps to my front door. Forced out, to sodomize a quiet night They all, they all go out without a fight. Will we, will we ever make this right.
