Song: Ghetto Defendant

Lyrics:
(Allen Ginsberg lyrics)

"(Starved in metropolis)
(Hooked on nicrapolis)
(Addict of metropolis)
(Do the worm on the acropolis)
(Slam dance the cosmopolis)
(Enlighten the populace)

Hungry darkness of living
Who will thirst in the pit?
(Hooked in metropolis)
She spent a lifetime deciding
How to run from it
(Addicts of metropolis)

Once fate had a witness
And the years seemed like friends
(Girlfriends)
Now her child has a dream,
But it begins like the end
(Shot into eternity)
(Methadone kitty)
(Iron serenity)

Ghetto defendant
It is heroin pity
Not tear gas nor baton charge
That stops you taking the city
(Strung out committee)

Walled out of the city
Clubbed down from uptown
Sprayed pest from the nest
Run out to barrio town
(The guards are itchy)

Forced to watch at the feast
Then sweep up the night
Flipped pieces of coin
(Broken bottles)
Exchanged for birthright
(Grafted in a jiffy)

Ghetto defendant
It is heroin pity
(Strung out committee)
Not tear gas nor baton charge
That stops you taking the city
(Not sitting pretty)
(Grafetd ina jiffy)
Heroin pity
Not tear gas nor baton charge
That stops you taking the city

The ghetto prince of gutter poets
Was bounced out of the room
(Jean arthur rimbaud)
By the bodyguards of greed
For disturbing the tomb
(1873)

His words like flamethrowers
(Paris commune)
Burnt the ghettos in their chests
His face was painted whiter
And he was laid to rest
(Died in Marseille)

Ghetto defendant
(Buried in charleville)
It is heroin pity
Not tear gas nor baton charge
Stops you taking the city
(Shut up in eternity)
It is heroin pity
Not tear gas nor baton charge
That stops you taking the city

(Guatemala, Honduras, Poland)
(A hundred years war)
(T.V. rerun invasion)
(Death squad, Salvador)
(Afghanistan, Meditation)
(Old Chinese flu)
(Kick junk, what else can a poor worker do?)

Ghetto defendant
It is heroin pity
Not tear gas nor baton charge
Will stops you taking the city

Ghetto defendant
It is heroin pity
Not tear gas nor baton charge
That stops you taking the city"
