Track Name: Working Title: Los Angeles
I feel like I'm gonna die in Los Angeles.
I can't explain it, man. I just see it happening.
Barring some sort of immediate tragedy, I'd
expect nothing short of a masterpiece.
Nothing less than a god damned miracle,
I'd be my own little Venice Beach spiritual.
Smoke me in traffic (just like an actress),
now leave me underneath your hotel mattress.

I feel like I'm getting drunk on New Orleans,
I'm stuck in the Quarter and nothing's important.
A chicory tongue and the Wild Magnolias,
I'm asking French tourists where Kermit Ruffins is from.
They don't know nothing. I don't know anything.
I'm just a drug store: impeccable! Mystery!
And something's happening but, nothing's happening.
I'm just in love with the drunks down on Frenchmen Street.

I hate writing about New York City,
every band's got songs, man well...I've got fifty and
I'd recite em but, I'd be boring ya
(that's why my ex-lovers move to Astoria).
Transfer above ground, breathe me in day spas.
Buy my in line at your corner bodega.
I'm just a pay stub. Man, that's a wake up!
Find me in line, baby. Hasta luego!
Track Name: Eleven
Damn, the whole block smelled like electrical fire.
There were ConEd trucks and a spindle of wire.
Then the lights flickered off and the kids got excited,
They sang, "I'd rather be the pistol than the bullet you're firing."

Started to look for my smokes, saw the pack on the ground.
My last 27, she was bleeding out.
So I lifted out a Spirit, pretended to like it.
I'd rather be the pistol than the bullet you're firing.

Now now, you're stuck on the screen; stuck on the pictures,
sick of the news and the hidden agendas.
We're tired of people dying because they're Black in America,
fed up with discriminating pay cause of gender.

Don't ever show me your weapon,
I think that goes without question.
Don't ever show me your weapon,
I think that goes without question.
Don't ever show me your weapon,
I think that goes without question.
Don't ever show me your weapon,
I think that goes without question.

There was close to an eighth, a packed vaporizer,
a "c'est les bon temps" plastic novelty lighter.
She said, "I'm not armed, Officer. I can't find my license.
I'd rather be the pistol than the bullet you're firing."

She said, "I'm not armed, Officer."
"I can't find my license."
She said, "I'm not armed, Officer."
"I can't find my license."
She said, "I'm not armed."
