Great Junkie Street, aye,

cross from Smack Generator.
The old cowboy’s lost his horse,
sure they pawned it, sure they’d pawn anything.

Used to be whores and sailors,
now it’s just junkies
and the old folks smokin out the Tam.

Looks like a castle from ma window,
this white bird sits on the chimney, opens
its wings and balances isself in the wind.
