L.A.P.D.

  • Watch where you're going
    If you don't want to fall
    Seeds you've been sowing
    Bearing fruit, growing tall
    Like the bright scarlet blossom that erupts from the face of your enemy.

    Clubs rise and fall
    To the pulse of the hot surging blood in your heart.
    Eyes that stare
    As your brain splits apart
    Like the egg of a cock that has lain in the sun for too long.

    The air is heavy with the smell of fear
    By your faces I can tell where you are
    A thousand shining eyes will never shed a tear
    And the man inside his fortress doesn't hear a sound.

    Shadows are born,
    And they crawl like the serpent that lives in your breast
    Broken bodies
    That lie on the ground
    Like the discarded toys of an idiot child.

    The air is heavy with the smell of fear
    By your faces I can tell where you are
    A thousand shining eyes will never shed a tear
    And the man inside his fortress doesn't hear a sound.
