The sidewalk's cracked,
The roots growing under destroying the works of man.
The city of Los Angeles proper
is canceled in event of rain.

Out in the desert hills there's a barroom,
Famous the world around.
Paid-off police issuing tickets

And it hurts so bad,
Sometimes this shit must drive you mad.

Hang a left just past Nevada.
Cut up through Idaho.
Should you see the King of Montana,
Avert your eyes and bow down low.

Don't you work no more,
Don't you scrub that floor,
Until you're quite sure
Just who it is you're working for.

There you go now
Heading out on your own again.
Everything is gonna be fine.
