"The Rat Traps" as written by Jorge Arturo Casillas, Jerry William O'neill, Edgardo G Casillas and Francisco Casillas....
Welcome to the rat traps,
And to my neighbourhood.
Everybody's struggling
And misunderstood.

The dope man and the hookers
And the poor Hispanic family
Have all been praying
Dying in this reality.

This is how we live! (We live!)
This is where we live!
This is how I live! (I live!)
This is where I live!

My friend he used to live there
Until the age of seventeen,
Raised with love and honour
Single parent family.

Painting a pretty picture
Of the neighbourhood,
Broken kids existence
Is what I understood.

This is how we live! (We live!)
This is where we live!
This is how I live! (I live!)
This is where I live!

Rat traps, rat traps!!
Rat traps, rat traps!!

Some people are forgotten
Others might get found,
Caught up in the nothing
Of life and tragedy.
Blue collar acceptance
With religious tradition,
Making a better life
Don't feel bad for me.

For some that's all they got
I think it'll always be here,
Happiness without ambition
What's in store for me?
What happened to hope?
All I know is desperation,
This place, it bleeds frustration
The rat traps take from me.

This is how we live! (We live!)
This is where we live!
This is how I live! (I live!)
This is where I live!

Rat traps, rat traps!!
Rat traps, rat traps!!
