  • Driving down blistered severe
    The rapacious maw of our despair
    Black dog follows, strip club echoes
    The raven's shadow across the ghetto

    Up the hill in an unmarked grave
    The mother of American darkness lays
    Liberty or death to start the battle
    There's nonesuch place for human chattel

    Hanging by a threat
    Now you can choke on it
    Hanging by a threat
    So go and choke on it
    This is a reckoning
    You hear the ravens scream
    Hanging by a threat
    So go and choke on it

    Across the devil's own half acre
    There's rusted gallows for an angel
    The ghosts that built this city scream
    Of commerce and inhumanity

    Cancer rides the freeway's edge
    Falling statues and cigarettes
    Bullets whip the screaming kettle
    As teargas cloaks the monumental

    Hanging by a threat
    Now you can choke on it
    Hanging by a threat
    So go and choke on it
    This is a reckoning
    You hear the ravens scream
    Hanging by a threat
    So go and choke on it

    Chained beneath a parking lot
    Savaged on the auction block
    In antebellum geography
    Rage, horror, history

    Hanging by a threat
    Now you can choke on it
    Hanging by a threat
    So go and choke on it
    This is a reckoning
    You hear the ravens scream
    Hanging by a threat
    So go and choke on it
