  • I heard the Cityscape Skins are kinda kicking it again
    Heard they finally got some discipline
    Running up the score and stocking up like it's World War IV
    I heard that some are getting sprung and some are back in
    You know it's always back and forth
    And most of them are dead
    And some don't even live here anymore

    So when I brought you back here for Christmas
    I didn't think we would see them
    I guess I should've explained

    There was a side of this city I didn't want you to see
    There's just these guys that I know, we go back pretty deep
    And I hope this whole thing didn't frighten you
    There were times that it terrified me
    I know what they said, I don't know if it's true
    I hope this whole thing didn't frighten you

    They're building a bunker down by the river
    And someone said that that's where they've been getting together
    They got masks for the gas, they're sleeping in their bulletproof vests
    I guess Shepard came out of St. Cloud with a little ideology
    Some new way of thinking, man
    A view to the future
    Jesus, this might be a mess

    For me, it was mostly the music
    I couldn't go to the shows with
    I guess I should've explained

    There was a side of this city I didn't want you to see
    There's just these guys that I know, we go back pretty deep
    I saw you look at his shoes, I saw you look at their teeth
    I could tell this whole thing kind of frightened you
    So you tapped me on the arm like you wanted to cruise
    I could tell this whole thing kind of frightened you

    They never care if it's true
    As long as they got something to prove
    And they always got something to prove

    And the room full of dudes
    And they cranked up the tunes
    And I could tell this whole thing kind of frightened you

    There was a side of this city I didn't want you to see
    There's just these guys that I know, we go back pretty deep
    I saw you look at his shoes, I saw you look at their teeth
    I could tell this whole thing kind of frightened you
    So you tapped me on the arm like you wanted to cruise
    I could tell this whole thing kind of frightened you Publisher: RESERVOIR MEDIA MANAGEMENT INC
