Needle in my hand
Got a forearm rubber band
Got a golden liquid in a tube
I'm gonna do a vessel jam
Got lots of money
Got lots and lots and lots of time

A brass chord necklace and a smoke-stack too he's got

There's a black wind spinning the cities 
Weather vanes and the eye of the storm is a crystal of cocaine
Can't you hear the wind?
Can't you see the driving rain
Take a break from the storm in the eye of the hurricane

Black-white eyes, riddles and lies
They tell me, tell me, tell me you've got nothing to hide but
