Spruce Street

~Spruce Street~

Loud and noisy

Neighbors talk and arguing

A playground two blocks down the street

The scorching fire of the summer heat

Dismannered teens

Runs on people property

Cursin', screamin'. hollerin'

Throughout the whole street it's botherin'

Children's laughter fills the air

But guns blows a dying blair

Street gangs

Fine blangs

Felling a need for protection

Like a bird without perfection

Vengence takes place around the corner

People want justice for law and order

Snitches get stitches

In a line of a crowd

Follows violence
