"City" as written by Perry Farrell, David Michael Navarro, Stephen Andrew Perkins and Eric Adam Avery....
In the city there is something to see
In the city there is nothing to breathe
I'm goin' 'bout my business
I'm wondering what I'm missing
And on my way home, I hid in my coat
Wrote my name on the city wall
Being famous
In the city there is a park bench you can sleep out on
The city there is a trash can you can eat out of
I'm goin' 'bout my business
Wondering what I'm missing
And on my way home a cop said
"No"I said "There is a man with a stick and a gun in his hand
"Being famous. . .Red man in the city
Poor man in the city
Black man in the city
Fat man in the city
Red man
Black man
Fat man
Blue man
I don't know the rest of the words
'Cause I made it up just for you. . .

    General CommentI think this song is about Perry looking back at his life before Jane's Addiction, and feeling like he is missing out on the life he had before, where he was knee deep in the shit and sleaze of L.A.
