Jerusalem Slim – Lethal Underground lyrics

It's panic time
In the tale of two cities
Such a crime
The needy and the greedy
Downtown is deadly
The nerve of the killer elite
Home street home, a place of no retreat
Life on antisocial insecurity
A great performance in the most extreme cruelty
On the mean streets the heart is stainless
The mainline is fixin' fine
On the mean streets the wire is painless
Gonna turn your world around
They're shutting done
The lethal underground
Kiss and sell
The passion of treason
The candy's bad
And plenty every season
Hate it or leave it
You gotta see it to believe it
The only high is going down the drain
Ain't no ordinary angel falling from disgrace
It's just the darkness
Always leaving tracks across the face
On the mean streets the heart is stainless
The mainline is fixin' fine
On the mean streets the wire is painless
Gonna turn your world around
They're shutting done
The lethal underground
On the mean streets the heart is stainless
The mainline is fixin' fine
On the mean streets the wire is painless
Gonna turn your world around
On the mean streets you gotta be crazy
To maintain your sanity
On the mean streets the boundary is hazy
Gonna turn your world around
They're shutting down
The lethal underground
Yeah the torture garden
Is growing upside down
Murder and mayhem
The fury without a sound
They don't care
They're shutting down
The lethal underground
