The contagion spread to West Virginia Tin Soldiers war on Red Dragons
Some say India others say China Some say Morocco or Afgan never mind ya’ Some say it’s best in South America never mind, its now in placentas What it is will just end ya’ What’s the difference anyway Some say it is the end of days
Tin soldiers warring on Red Dragons All members were invited to come Each unit with usual orders fight until all is done Aerosol smoke in the alleys downtown moltov cocktails sniffing hounds made their bombs with great aplomb Who won Who won When fire was over ashes surround All stores locked grates were down what were the results ? Some soldiers falling off the wagon, some wives did run Of Dragons some took another warm gun spend their time staring at the sun Dragon Wives had choices pulling Hollywood trains for gum most said they could Who who Who won
Blues found bandanas in a kitchen nothing there for finger lickin. Bandanas scored a large green batch suddenly then at the door a crash. In the madness and confusion Explosions knocked out eyes of some others caught fire when the ride didn’t come. Green confetti blowing down the street Whose money, whose gun , where’s gum? Who Won Who Won
She was sitting on the sidewalk meeting up for Firday night street talk when along came a Lincoln M16 taking lives for cash by the ton She lies in a puddle blood running to the gutter, just an evening on her stoop, when blue lights blazed in, turns out she Mara’s bait Their intention to reel in blues, So the battles went on raging Asians, Afros, Browns and Blues You need to about raging it’s contagious Seems to be all around disadvantagious Keeps on growing and spreading South of the border more beheading Who won Who won
Blue graduated on a warm April night an academy where they taught him to fight hadn’t studied just for fun now they call him Atilla the Hun, Went to the docks with stars in his eyes Make people safe from crimes Stopped for donuts and coffee one night Never had time to grab his life real tight Once had a few stars and a new house Nobody saw it not even a mouse Bride was saving some cash Now a widow cuz her life crashed Seems all the people outside Suddenly went deaf dumb and blind All humanity is asundered Who won who won
Infection is growing worse than cancer the death bells tolling Now in Kansas, now in the park Always in the city no longer in the dark Under bridges and crystal chandeliers Business growing in better atmospheres Recruiters bolder than usual punks Got have a little respect Don likes jumpin All the girls who refused his flirting Grabs his boys sends them out in pain Find a woman and run his train Not the usual boss, takes his doses Leads them to remote locations Til his slaves pay for offending him Little Italy jumps back in, spreading more Infection, just be sure trap daddy’s accent Is the same as The Society of Friends.
Kati went out one night for a soda Man at the stations her for blow job Which one which one Back home she was cleaning her garage He came to take her boxes now she’s Living inside and hides Which one which one
When are people going to learn Yellow Black Brown or Sun-Burnt The wars going on and on you either ride or run, the road is long every Battle takes hard turns Who won who won
Just keep hanging on Maybe justice comes somehow Can’t find it now can’t find it now Can’t find it now , Will a Messiah tell us how
