Mean Streets

Death from Above 1979

Mean streets like Robert De Niro
He's mad for a reason
His reason's unclear though
Mean streets, we're flexing machismo
It's rockers and mods
It's the fragile young ego

Mean streets

Maybe we need less style
More substance, substance
Freaks are in the mainstream, on TV
Radio, CBC
Freaks are in the courtroom testifying
Go to jail looking fly
Don't pass go, no dough fo' yo'
Ten years fo' sho, so story go
Talking past, no talk at all
Just slogans, memes and dick fuck all
