"Fear City" as written by and Steven P. Smith....
Dragged down into lowercase
Trying to get your cops to talk right
But they can't put the paper in your face
You're just trying to walk by

So now I got a new game baby
No one's gonna recognize it
Your broken English over their flat, tired remarks
Still trying to bring some dead beauty back to life

Isn't it pretty? yeah
I'm gonna see my city dead
I can do everything that your man does except for better
Got no interest now in undressing your kids with cheap angst love

Letters
You write your name in all of the places no one goes
Some can't be satisfied until everybody knows
Isn't it pretty? yeah

I'm gonna see my city dead
Isn't it pretty? yeah
I'm gonna see my city dead (come on)
Isn't it pretty? yeah

I'm gonna see my city dead

    General Commentthis song is really underated only 2 comments!

    I think its about the fear and paranoia and isolation that comes with living in the city nowadays and how everyones really on their own when they are confonting the city hence -"But they can't put the paper in your face, You're just trying to walk by, So now I got a new game, baby, No one's going to recognize it". Also this line - "I can do everything that your man does except for better" shows how everyone is competing against each other in the city to keep their head above the surface.
