Empty Houses In Detroit

lyrics

BASEBALL CAPS AND BODY BAGS
THEY FOUND THE MAJOR SMOCKING CRACK
ICE CREAM TRUCKS ARE MAKING ROUNDS
WHILE DRIVE-BY SHOOTINGS HIT THE LOST AND FOUND
DEAD BABIES THEY JUST DON’T CROWN
STILLBORN IN AN ULTRASOUND

TOLD TO SEARCH AND DESTROY
TO OBEY AND TO ENJOY
OUR OWN HANDFUL OF NOTHING
WAIT UNTIL WE’RE DEPLOYED
IN NORTHEASTERN ILLINIOS
WITH OUR HANDFUL OF NOTHING
WHERE A NEW BREED WILL RISE
AND RECLAIM THE LAND

EMPTY HOUSES IN DETROIT
PERFECT PLACE TO START AGAIN
EMPTY HOUSES IN DETROIT
PALACE FOR THE COMMON MAN
EMPTY HOUSES IN DETROIT
WELCOME TO OUR PROMISED LAND
EMPTY HOUSES IN DETROIT
PERFECT PLACE TO START AGAIN

LATE ABORTIONS ON A LOOP
THEY’RE PRAISING JESUS FOR DEAD TROOPS
A PREGNANT SLUT FUCKS TO BLACK COCKS
WHILE FIREMEN KEEP DRINKING ON THE CLOCK
AND KIDS GET BEATEN BY THE COPS
SOBRIETY IS FED TO DOGS

TOLD TO SEARCH AND DESTROY
TO OBEY AND TO ENJOY
OUR OWN HANDFUL OF NOTHING
WAIT UNTIL WE’RE DEPLOYED
IN NORTHEASTERN ILLINIOS
WITH OUR HANDFUL OF NOTHING
WHERE A NEW BREED WILL RISE
AND RECLAIM THE LAND

EMPTY HOUSES IN DETROIT
PERFECT PLACE TO START AGAIN
EMPTY HOUSES IN DETROIT
PALACE FOR THE COMMON MAN
EMPTY HOUSES IN DETROIT
WELCOME TO OUR PROMISED LAND
EMPTY HOUSES IN DETROIT
STILL STAND!

EMPTY HOUSES IN DETROIT
PERFECT PLACE TO START AGAIN
EMPTY HOUSES IN DETROIT
PALACE FOR THE COMMON MAN
EMPTY HOUSES IN DETROIT
WELCOME TO OUR PROMISED LAND
EMPTY HOUSES IN DETROIT
PERFECT PLACE TO START AGAIN
