LYRICS

I heard the Cityscape Skins are kind of kicking it again.
Heard they finally got some discipline.
Running up the score and stocking up like it's World War Four.
I heard that some are getting sprung
And some are back in.
You know it's always back and forth.
And most of them are dead and some don't even live here anymore.

So when I brought you back here for Christmas.
I didn't think we would see them.
I guess I should have explained.

There was a side of this city I didn't want you to see.
There's just these guys that I know and we go back pretty deep.
I hope this whole thing didn't frighten you.
There were times that it terrified me.
I know what they said. I don't know if it's true.
I hope this whole thing didn't frighten you.
They're building a bunker down by the river.
And someone said that that's where they've been getting together.
They've got masks for the gas.
They're sleeping in their bulletproof vests.
I guess Shepard came out of St. Cloud with a little ideology.
Some new way of thinking man.
A view to the future.
Jesus this might be a mess.

For me it was mostly the music.
A crew to go to the shows with.
I guess I should have explained.
There was a side of this city I didn't want you to see.
There's just these guys that I know and we go back pretty deep.
I hope this whole thing didn't frighten you.
There were times that it terrified me.
I know what they said. I don't know if it's true.
I hope this whole thing didn't frighten you.

They never care if it's true as long as they've got something to prove.
And they've always got something to prove.

And the room filled with dudes.
And they cranked up the tunes.
And I could tell this whole thing kind of frightened you.

There was a side of this city I didn't want you to see.
There's just these guys that I know and we go back pretty deep.
I saw you look at their shoes. I saw you look at their teeth.
I could tell this whole thing kind of frightened you.
I saw you tapping your arm like you wanted to cruise.
I could tell this whole thing kind of frightened you.
