Does The Lion City Still Roar?
by Less Than Jake

I'll keep my faith alive
Cause this is paradise or parricide
I can't believe this sight
Streets full of blank faces and junky eyes

The streets won't sleep tonight
A lullaby for the half-alive
The city swings and whines
To the double crime of drugs and hard times

[Chorus]
Lion city sirens sing the night away, night away
Lion city sirens sing the night away

The city feels like a cage
Feels like a powder keg
That's almost set to explode

Lion city's begun to rot
It's a matter of time until the roaring stops
The scene from the ground up
From the painted walls to the rooftops
My city's closed and locked
While the hop of the beat crack our sidewalks
The haves and the have-nots
Paint the backdrops of drugs and gunshots

lion city sirens sing the night away, night away
Lion city sirens sing the night away
There?s an overdose on me
And he does the cocaine shake
Cause the lion city sirens sing the night away

The city seems like it's trapped
Between its future and its past
Life or death of a city not coming back
The city feels like a cage
Feels like a powder keg
And now it's gonna explode

[Chorus]

There's an overdose on me
And it's wearing out good things
Cause lion city sirens sing the night away
Sing the night away
Sing the night away
And I won't be long
