"White Center" as written by and Damien Jurado....
Heard he shot another
No one knows a reason
It didn’t make the paper
It’s just another white lie
Here in white center
Here in white center
Here in white center
Here in white center

Can I take out the flowers?
Sunday packed the churches
Morning comes too slowly
For us who feel like victims
Here in white center
Here in white center
Here in white center
Here in white center

Turn off your headlights
Here comes a cop car
Music for the bad boys
Music for the good boys
Here in white center
Here in white center
Here in white center
Here in white center

    General CommentDamien is singing about violence in the White Center community of Seattle.

    The line in the first verse is not "white lie". it's "wild night".
