​Toxic In The City

This song is by Hello Beautiful and appears on the album Soundtrack For Scenario (2008).

The lights go down we try to hide
Those pill that eat you up in side
Ink runs right through my veins
It's toxic in the city

Another day goes lookin' for victims
I think I'm leavin'
I'm takin' my ego man I'm driftin
Believe me
I've had my share of downs
Ups seem to take a detour around
Opportunity makes no sound
Last week I had two dimes rubbin together
This week one needs a sweater
And the other took a step up
Ain't no let up
See ain't no time like now to feel change
That's why

Ink runs right through my veins

I'm the same dude you caught mid-thought sheildin the flame
From a simple society that sees you between the seams
I miss Dean and Jerome 'cause they'd know what I mean
I miss Dean and Jerome 'cause they'd know

The lights go down we try to hide
Those pills that eat you up inside
Ink runs right through my veins
It's toxic in the city
I'd live a photo if I could
Run down abandon neighborhood
Crossed out its where they all belong
It's toxic in the city

I walk into the street like I'm steppin out a plane
I see the bigger picture
Lookin' at the detail in the frame
I'm from a place you'd call

A broke down neighborhood

But still I wouldn't

Change it if I could

Young minds like mine they know it good
But we never ever seem to let the folk know who should
This look
It give a whole new meanin' to cook
And left on the hook to purge
Reportin from the valley on the verge of a riot
Settin the back row on fire
So quiet
Tryin' to make that ol' man into a liar
The lights get brighter as the stash gets higher
But the creep from the bottom's like the tip-toe of a lion, feel me

The lights go down we try to hide
Those pills that eat you up inside
Ink runs right through my veins
It's toxic in the city
I'd live a photo if I could
Run down abandon neighborhood
Crossed out its where they all belong
It's toxic in the city

If you don't see it different then agree to disagree
Find a core set it free
Leave that law letter be
Lose the grip of a tease
Feel the breeze blow chill
When you're gone are your folk gonna drink 'bout him?
Or does talk get overshadowed by the walkin'
Son don't bluff go all in
If you're stuck on up and shallow that's your callin baby
And ain't no time like the lost to find a gain
Yeah, your voice is the loudest
But how many folk know your name, really

The lights go down we try to hide
Those pills that eat you up inside
Ink runs right through my veins
It's toxic in the city
I'd live a photo if I could
Run down abandon neighborhood
Crossed out its where they all belong
It's toxic in the city (ch.x2)
