Cops and Whores and Junkies, I Don't Care.

While this song isn't specifically political, it's largely political in accurately describing the kind of social, cultural and economic malaise that has fallen over America's de-industrialized zones.




East Dayton Saturday Night
by drexel

I walk down on East Third, Oh the stares
Cops and whores and junkies
I don't care
I'm looking' for liquor
my brain is on fire
I've got everything that goes along with my hedonistic desires

As I walk down this crazy avenue
Freakiest people on earth oh my god what a motley crew
All the girls are pregnant, just around age 13
There's a guy next to me snorting' crystal
Man these streets is mean

Lord can't you hear me
We're join' insane
A place lost and leary
It sticks to the brain
Oh mama I'm weary
Gonna take the south train
Just another East Dayton Saturday night

I walk down on East Third, oh my mind is bare
Sidewalk punks and junk cars, I do declare
I'm searching for answers, but none are coming through
The old man at the corner market ain't got none, he says he's through

Lord can't you hear me
We're join' insane
A place lost and leary
It sticks to the brain
Oh mama I'm weary
Gonna take the south train
Just another East Dayton Saturday night

As I stroll down this demented avenue
I wonder how I got here, what I'm gonna do,
All the fellas are locked up, over on the west side
Babies in diapers on the sidewalk
Man this place is a dive

Lord can't you hear me
We're join' insane
A place lost and leary
It sticks to the brain
Oh mama I'm weary
Gonna take the south train
Just another East Dayton Saturday night……alright
