L.A. Riots Lyrics by Narcoleptic Youth
L.A. Riots by Narcoleptic Youth
From the burned down city that they call "L.A."
See the vigilante hero, peace sign on his back.
Watch him set fire to an old guard shack.
And then I CAN understand.
No money for food, so I stole a T.V.
It's a "blow out sale" in the riot city.
Just how bad off can they be?
As I'm sitting home safe in front of my big screen.
The racist po-lice I heard them say
Is what made them react this way.
Torch a building like it's a game as you make
The news amongst the flames, but...
I CAN'T understand.
What's going through your mind?
Happens every time...
And then it's lights out!
