I am the city
I am the park
I am glow in the motherfucking dark
I am shocked and I seethe
I don't want to believe
No more
Golgotha tenement
City of sores
Give me your tired and your wicked
Give me your dollar whores
Down on the boulevard children are sold to pave the way For your streets of gold
Streets of gold
["I am the chosen one"]

    General CommentMOLG went on record saying they wrote the song specifically for the movie. So it's their interpretation of a 'theme to the Crow.' Golgotha was the place where Jesus was crucified. The song itself is about a second coming, coming from the ghetto's.

    General CommentWow, I'm surprised nobody's commented on this song. Friggin' amazing song. There's just so many "christian" metaphors in this song. One of the dominant songs that have honestly sparked my imagination in creative writing. The meaning? Let your imagination run with it.
