Lonely and Lost
Wannabes, Dreamers
 
Rappers and Singers

Whimsical Medicine provided

Rainbow walker and Mate
Mischief where the kids skate
Ask me how I know
Almost like the Grapevine
 
Things get around
To every town
My city is corrupt
Yes
My city is lost
Yes
My city is a damsel in distress
Yes
 
Things I asked
Things you said
Neither true
Alas, it's the people
The people who live
Living in this humble abode
 
Am I proud
Proud of my city
Yes, For standing out
And not breaking all together
Am I proud
Proud of my people
No answer is clear
Everyone is not at fault
Some aren't even here
 
Painted ladies of lust
Men leaders of power
The Devil plans to take over
My City of Detroit
Will Not Bow!
