New Orleans Is A Dying Whore

This song is by Down and appears on the album Down II (2002).

The eighteen hundreds, before the inception
Of modern day ideals, fake grip of appeals,
Straight to the street run, no bar room virgin,
Double vision cocaine, to a whore house of pain
(Think deep within ourselves, things haven't changed so much)

New Orleans is a dying whore
Naked she sleeps on my floor
New Orleans is a dying whore

The spreading highway, the underwater staircase
Leading up to a black room, to leave there you're a fool
Mob world politics, so broke it can't fix,
Trapped in a time zone, there's no place like home
(If it ain't broke don't try and fix it, oh but there can be an exception)

New Orleans is a dying whore
With your love she breaks down my door
New Orleans is a dying whore

(Relax)

New Orleans is a dying whore
Stripped down and beat to the floor

New Orleans is a dying whore
Blood covered, stuck to my floor
