Lyrics

knock knock
come in
you wanna fight
i'm gonna win
i'll take you out
in a minute
step in my flat
see what's in it

i live in the land of wellfare state
my flat used to be section 8
now it's a rat infested cocaine run
my whole world plays like a broken drum

junkie drunken bum
yeah yeah yeah
rats in the hallway again

get up get out go ahead and ride away
sit up our bed up your bed to lay
kick up our rip up this place apart
even when i'm finished i'm back at the start
i'm out of line at adeline street
heat don't keep the crooked beat
4am no waves breaking what's left of the pm the am has taken

junkie drunken bum
yeah yeah yeah
rats in the hallway again

outside my gate my crew is drinking a 40oz
asked me if there's still rats in the hallway
i said somethings ain't like the weather
they never seem to change for the better
this girl came up to me she said she would do me no harm
rolled up her sleeve and showed me tracks on her arm
i said what's your name she said Mya
she said Tim, i wanna take you higher

junkie drunken bum
yeah yeah yeah
rats in the hallway again

zombie walking kid out on his own with no morale
mr. high leaves the body in comes mr. withdrawal
pain is the only thing the body will allow
the kid wants to dance the gangsters knows how

johnny bought some dope down on civic and market
shoot up boot up the human target
he hit the dirty spike when he hit the scene
it's easy to stay dirty when nothing is clean
he's a writer, who tags up jackal
jackal just clamped on unclampable shackels
boot up shoot up some dope to go
like legal currency it's money it's like that
rat tat tat kid got shot point blank in the back my land lord said
not to be bumming he was on cocaine stoop and he had it coming he had it coming?
he was only 12 years old he was in the blizzard he got shot for being cold
it don't seem right tonight hit the lights alright
watch the roaches run into the darkest room

junkie drunken bum
yeah yeah yeah
rats in the hallway again
