The city is at a war
A place among the young and rich
Ignore me if you see me 'cause I just don't give a s**t
The city is at war
Bless the young and rich
With designer drugs and designer friends

The city is at a war
A place among the young and rich
Ignore me if you see me 'cause I just don't give a s**t
The city is at war
Bless the young and rich
With designer drugs and designer friends

Here's how it goes
It's about who you know
If you
Got money you get in for free
Get on your knees if you wanna reach the top
The party never stops (never stops)
Don't stop now (don't stop now)

Come on!
Stick around and see how it ends
Get the money and run
And meet me at the parking lot
Bang bang! Shoot 'em up yeah

The city is at a war
A place among the young and rich
Ignore me if you see me 'cause I just don't give a s**t
The city is at war
Bless the young and rich
With designer drugs and designer friends

Oh oh oh oh oh

This little girl was alone in the world
Until she
Found a way to get a fix for free
Oh pretty please
It breaks my heart to see
Another tragedy she finally got her picture on tv

Come on!
Live it up while you can
We all lose in the end
No you don't get another shot
Bang bang! Shoot 'em up, yeah

The city is at a war
A place among the young and rich
Ignore me if you see me 'cause I just don't give a s**t
The city is at war
Bless the young and rich
With designer drugs and designer friends

The city is at war
The city is at war
The city is at war
War oh oh

Bang bang! Shoot 'em up,
Shoot 'em up, yeah
Bang bang! Shoot 'em up,
Shoot 'em up, yeah (the city is at war)
Bang bang! Shoot 'em up,
Shoot 'em up, yeah
Bang bang! Shoot 'em up,
Shoot 'em up, yeah.

    Love the song. And the lyrics. Tis about Hollywood and how it's so. For lack of better words, bad! Like, "This little girl was alone in the world.Until she Found a way to get a fix for free Oh pretty please. It breaks my heart to see .Another tragedy she finally got her picture on TV" I think that means like their trying to say that she'll get into bad things and it's a tragedy because of what will happen.((I've head our record label practically owns our ass))
