"(Detroit) falls"
It’s a disaster here in Detroit, and I’ve been scutched from the streets,
The tenants she’s wrought
Watch her slip into the night, she plays her trick on me
With ignorant pride, now I can say I love it here
In a selfish way, I love it here.
Our own heart attacks us now as we
Get stressed out defending Detroit from God know’s who,
Saying she’s dumb, or stupid, or really low key
We all know she’s not a sophisticate,
But we love her, except for the murders and scandals.
Detroit in the summer is like us in the fall,
Gun shy and clamoring down the street,
We arrange ourselves so she cannot get through
She falls down, now Detroit has to stay with me,
Who am I kidding I don’t love it here,
Here’s murderous rampage, It’s a dichotomy of cultures,
Detroit’s no good for us we should all leave,
“Who needs these drugs Man?”, “Who needs these gangs”
Continue to waste your measely wages, but you’re
wasting your time with these things.

gimme a real voice
Nice piano playing. I want to hear flesh and blood reciting
your grievous soliloquy. Good words.

i love the juxtaposition of the digitized Bruce voice over the acoustic piano and strings. sort of highlites the blue colar industrial nature of Detroit. nice piece.

I know what you mean. I grew up in Detroit many many years ago. Can't believe what it's become.
