"Downtown"

Ominous alleys with garbage strewn
Cigarette butts and paper cups in the gutter
Condom wrappers and dirty socks snickering
Candy wrappers littering the sidewalks
Rusty hypodermics laying in doorways
Boarded up and broken windows
Architecture adorned with graffiti
What pigs created this mess of downtown?
And when did they do this?

Let's walk with dignity in our designer shoes
Let's pretend we don't see anything
Let's shop at those fine specialty shops
Let's dine at that expensive restaurant
And then let's grab a exquisite cappuccino
Let's pretend we're not afraid
None of this can affect us
All of this has nothing to do with us
This is not our fault - We are innocent
