I used to front like Angkor Wat, Mechanicsburg, Anchorage and Dar es Salaam

While home from New York was champagne and disco
Eb                 F
Tapes from l.a. slash San Francisco

But actually Oakland and not Alameda

Your girl was in Berkeley with her communist reader

I'm stronger now, I'm ready for the house
        F
Such a modest mouse

I can't do it alone, I can't do it alone

Snow falling slow to the sound of the Master
