I let it hit me like a real bad accident My brain sloshing around inside my skull and shit. Waking up to strangers calling the cops “Pick up your phone, pick up your phone”, wait STOP. (123) GO Golden dragon, major arcana, no sense of time. I scoop the loop, way down, out across 95. Cops in the corner, cracks in my skin. “Hey where have you been kiddo?” Where have you been?. Lost in the walled city! Lost in the cage! You feeling brave fellas? You feeling brave? Lost in the walled city! Lost in the cage! You feeling brave fellas? You feeling brave? They bugged your body, they tracked all your calls. When you run from pigs, you run with the bulls. Helicopters zero in from up overhead. Try to escape but there’s no hope mother fucker you dead! Lost in the walled city! Lost in the cage! You feeling brave fellas? You feeling brave? (YEAH) Lost in the walled city! Lost in the cage! You feeling brave fellas? You feeling brave? (YEAH) I’m slowing down somewhere just east of montrose beach Where cigarettes and underpasses smell like piss and bleach Wound out somewhere just south of uptown And feel myself slowly start to pitch doooooown. Lost in the walled city! Lost in the cage! You feeling brave fellas? You feeling brave? (YEAH) Lost in the walled city! Lost in the cage! You feeling brave fellas? You feeling brave? (YEAH)

Phoned by an old date asking if you want dinner and a drink. Look in the cupboard and realize you haven’t left the house this week. He wants you back baby, He wants you back baby, He wants you back. “I’m gonna own this city, take a seat and let me make a toast.” Whips out his watch, and queries siri how to get to golden coast. I want you back I want you back I want you back. 80 bones just for the bottle, "smell crushed rocks leap out the glass." waft the wine up to your nose, but hey, y’know, it tastes like ass. I want you back I want you back I want you back. So many desperate dudes out there ready to light themselves on fire Asking all the furry mamas if they like lickin’ tires. I want you back I want you back I want you back. Girls, kick his dick if you find a kinky post-it! Girls, kick his dick if you find a kinky post-it! Girls, kick his dick if you find a kinky post-it! Girls, kick his dick if you find a kinky post-it! Girls, kick his dick if you find a kinky post-it!

Get the CHOC! electronique. electronique. electronique. electronique. Me and the big bad internet boys are breaking in your house. Me and the big bad internet boys have cracked ALL the codes.
