1. My City

From the recordings My City and Public Display of Affliction

In cart Not available Out of stock


Benny needs his alcohol I.V. in place
Mary needs her therapy strong like a brace
Winston needs his nicotine won't read the news
Nestor needs his magazines next to his noose

The view from my city
The view from my place
No room for self pity
At the roots of disgrace

Billy favors needles now nothing else works
Francis does what's not allowed bring her your quirks
Charlie seems the normal type but who can be sure
After hours every night everything blurs


I know it won't be easy to say goodbye
I know it won't be easy but I will try

Benny's in recovery Mary's on speed
Winston keeps on smoking his corporate weed
Billy mainline's Jesus now Francis she died
Charlie still seems normal no wonder he hides
