Cro-Mags – War On The Streets lyrics

Another stick up kid takes another life today
Monkey on his back crackpipe in the ashtray
Sweet little girl dumps her baby in the alley
Got knocked up by a rapist in the valley

Hooker on the corner dressed in drag got robbed out
Stabbed 40 times by a psycho that was down and out
Just when I try to relax and think it's alright
I hear a gunshot and a siren in the dead of night

War on the streets - it's crazy out there
War - and the cops dno't care
War on the streets - it ain't safe at night
War - got you runnin for your life

Imminent danger of a never ending race war
Rich bitch wanna terminate the poor
Watch us kill each other lookin down from their penthouse
Now they're running scared cause they can't escape the madhouse

No one's safe from the violence and madness
Killin each other's just never ending sadness
Crack dealer on the corner played the fool
The other day he shot a kid on his way to school
Are we at war?
