all-encompassing dangerous living for the fatalistic
Like Living

You got me captured.
Strung up by the short hairs.
I'm not going anywhere.

Not caught up in the crosstown chatter.
What they all say, it doesn’t matter.
Clear as well as the liberty bell.
We’re all chain-strapped going to Hell.

Why act like we don’t know any better?
Contracted down to the very last letter.
Injecting blood like it’s not real.
The drugs just seal the deal.

Heaven’s in a hand-basket not meant for us.
No one down here left to trust.
Living life like living is dangerous.
The only life for us.
