This City...

Here is the city I was born in,
Where the opium moon shines.
Night lets down its dark, narcotic
Hair and a nothing-wind blows.

Black waters lap steel shores,
And I ask: "is this life, is it, is it?"
But no one answers me today,
I may call again tomorrow, maybe.

I think God is on vacation again,
And I think it's gonna rain today.
This city smells of  rot and disease,
It smells of cheap and perfumed dreams.

And I realize that I hate myself,
And I realize that I always will.
This is the city I will die in,
And the sun will never rise.
