You've got your roots in the streets - stretch almost four weeks deep. Straight out of Mayberry to claim these city streets. You've got your Nike's, your new-found families. Do what the fuck you please. Rock the spot with your G's with moneys from mommy's and daddy's. You're blowing up the spot, and you've shot up my heart. You make alleys pop. You make bodies drop. Please stop. I've been got. Emergency.

    General Commentthis song reminds me of what happens today.
    some guy likes girl, girl goes out with anyone for the sake of it (which i see alot) girl just leaves him, doing the same thing, and they all been broken like him.

    General CommentI Hate Myself were really into Ol' Dirty Bastard, this might have took its toll in this song :P

    It also used the same chords from the breakdown in "Destroy All Monsters"

    General CommentLosing the one close friend (or more+than+friend) that identified with that narrow set of things that made you who you were. They moved on, and you wouldn't see them again like that.
