"Bars in Astoria" as written by Frank Palmeri, Jesse Ketive, Mark Davis, Michael Kaabe and Mikael Mulholland....
So here it is
I'm in the Bronx
I'm on the 1
I'm on the run
I'm going back to Queens

I walk through the door, and look who it is
I didn't think I'd see you but I'm glad I did

I can't believe you didn't see this coming
You should have read my lyrics a little closer

Ask me how much I paid my lawyer
You should have read my lyrics a little closer

You've got that crazy look in? your eyes again

So here's the deal
I'm at the precint, not released yet
And they're calling you a punk
I thought you hated cops?
911 Speed Dial
Keeping the phone unlocked

Don't forget I know where you sleep at night

Somebody help me please
Somebody help me please
I swear to god I'll pull this trigger
Swear to god I'll pull this trigger

And watch your soul flow out

    General CommentHe doesn't suck at writing, he just doesn't use big words to symbolize a simple idea. Look at Whitechapel's lyrics for instance. And Emmure is more about feeling angry emotions and he sings about what he thinks and he just says it how he thinks it. In my opinion. Seems logical.

    General CommentHere's the correct lyrics from the CD booklet:

    So here it is
    I left the Bronx
    I'm on the 1
    I'm on the run
    I'm going back to Queens


    I walk through the door
    And look who it is
    I didn't think I'd see you.
    But I'm glad I did


    I can't believe you didn't see this coming
    You shoulda read my lyrics a little closer

    Ask me how much I paid my lawyer
    You shoulda read my lyrics a little closer

    You've got that crazy look in your eyes

    So here's the deal
    I'm at the precinct, not released yet
    And they're calling you a punk
    I thought you hated cops?
    911 Speed dial
    Keeping your phone unlocked


    Don't forget, I know where you sleep at night


    Somebody help me please,
    Somebody help me please
    I swear to god I'll pull this
    I swear to god I'll pull this trigger


    And watch your soul flow out

    General CommentI cannot believe that people still haven't realized yet that Emmure is not trying to be lyrical genius's. They just wanna sound hardcore and they do a pretty good job. Some of these lyrics might suck but when they play them live it's fucking awesome.
