"Run This City" as written by Vlad Luca Gheorghiu, Daniel Harris Diliberto, Mikhail A. Safonov and Matei Ioan Gheorghiu....
When I come in, you start to sin
Don't worry, don't worry
I got it.
I'm so full of me there's hardly room for you to breathe

Well I'll be there, don't doubt it
No matter where you are, that's where I'll be
Yeah I'll be there, don't doubt me

Because I run this city right and gritty.

If I hear you saying something about me
To the left I've got my friends and they're ready to swing
To the back I've got my army they're as big as the sea
And it looks like yours is just ready to leave!
The spotlights will agree I am a show you've got to see

I run this city right and gritty with a heavy hand.
I do it for me, I run this city.
I do it for me.

    General Commentit just sounds to me like it's about a guy who's pretty confident about himself and stuff. But it's the song that got me into them :)

    I agree with emchapps it sounds like he's confident about himself and it has a niice air of ...smugness that makes me love them even more

    General Commentthis song is a satire
    they are mocking someone who is full of themselves and thinks they are fantastic

    My Opinioni happen to love jet lag,
    their my favorite band.
    and im pretty much agree with all of you.
    i think he's trying to convey how well he's doing.(in life)

    "Well I'll be there, don't doubt it
    No matter where you are, that's where I'll be
    Yeah I'll be there, don't doubt me"

    and it also seems like their saying how close they all are.
    as friends
