aw man you should of seen it,
they came from all over the world
all just trying to say something.
but then those clippers came
and those people drowned
and the scaffold...
it came falling down.
then the conquests came
and the noise died down
and i never heard another single thing about it.

"hey you. you got a ciggarette man?
you know i know you got one on ya.
i usually keep mine in the backseat
but its buried behind all the rubble.
you know after a few months
i figured all this shit would be easier.
no wife, no kids, nothin man
but my monkey sure is breathin."

and around the corner tonight ...
my man, he's sleepin out on the street.
"someone should go tell him its cold outside".
i don't think he's listening.

and its only just a matter of time
before we all gotta go underground.
and for whats its worth
they ain't got no drugs down there.

and don't even think for a second,
that just cause you been co-opted
you've been cancelled out.
cause for a minute there we tasted it.
and know we know what its all about.

    General CommentI think he says something right after after
    "and know we know what its all about."
    but I can barely hear what he says :/

    General Commentyeah i kinda get a post-911 vibe from this. The first verse definitely depicts some sort of tragedy turned spectacle, and I feel like the rest of the song kind of deals with the fallout (poverty, homelessness maybe?), and then goes on to talk about the future (being underground as a possible example).
