"Sweet Spots" as written by and Matthew Friedberger....
Well I stuffed my stuff into a sport sac and I took the Lake St. El.
Well I got off Cicero and I snuck in through one of the loading docks.
And I smiled as I sucked my gem I mean to take a room at the Brack's.
Well I put things into the pockets of my parachute pants and I walked on up the street.
Now Galewood makes me nervous but the corn syrup cloud's such a lure.
So I'm staying off to the side at this end of the M&M Mars tour.
Well I bought a bike but the chair broke right outside of Parky's
Well the wait was making my eyes wet and sticking french fries down my throat.
But I had to press on cause sweeter stuff's on the other side of the moat.
Well the cars were turning off Harlem so I had to stop and stare.
And I had to gulp for air oh my heart was racing I made my escape.
I's red hot to get lemonheaded and live with Alexander the Grape.

    General CommentReferences a lot of places on the west side of Chicago. The Lake Street El (the Green Line) heads straight west out of downtown. Cicero is a major north-south street a ways west. Harlem is another, further west still. Brach's used to have a massive candy manufacturing plant along the Green Line.

    Sounds like the protagonist sneaks into the candy plant to steal some freebies!
