Less Than Jake — Does The Lion City Still Roar? lyrics

I'll keep my faith alive
Cause this is paradise for parasites
I can't believe my eyes
Streets full of blank faces and junkie eyes
The streets won't sleep tonight
A lullaby for the half alive
The city swings and whines
To the double crime of drugs and hard times

Lion city's sirens sing the night away, night away
Lion city's sirens sing the night away
The city feels like a cage
Feels like a powder keg
That's almost set to explode

Lion city's begun to rot
It's a matter of time until the roaring stops
The scene from the ground up
From the painted walls to the rooftops
Lion city's closed and locked
While the pop of feet crack on sidewalks
The haves and the have-nots
Fade to backdrops of drums and gunshots

Lion city's sirens sing the night away, night away
Lion city's sirens sing the night away
There's an overdose on 8th
And he does the cocaine shake
Cause the lion city's sirens sing the night away

The city seems like it's trapped
Between it's future and it's past
Life or death of a city not coming back
The city feels like a cage
Feels like a powder keg
And now it's gonna explode

Lion city's sirens sing the night away, night away
Lion city's sirens sing the night away
There's an overdose on 8th
And he's wearing a blue face
Cause lion city's sirens sing the night away
Sing the night away
Sing the night away
And I won't be long
