Smoke a cigarette on my porch And watch the world go by Realize that this is no place to live But really a place to die Our souls cannot be saved Because this is definitely hell Once you're here there's no escape You're under a demonic spell This community is condemned From the core to the sky Rapists and worse run free And no one bats an eye Everyone is so full of hate Yet sickeningly polite to your face There's no sincerity or honesty In this miserable place But if you have money or drugs Everyone's your best friend And once they've sucked you dry That's where the friendships end I'll keep smoking my cigarette Watching the world go by The depravity of this place will haunt me Until the day I die
