The Prince and The Playground

from by The Disappointment



from the forthcoming debut EP, Damn Righteous. enjoy responsibly.


somewhere in brooklyn's an awareness indeed
the scene is making sure you'll always be seen
somewhere in brooklyn's an invisible line
that slowly pushes out the poor over time

somewhere in brooklyn there's a new couple still
engaged in fantasies of square feet in cobble hill
somewhere there's got to be relief we can find
the kind that notices the need to not be so witty all the time

who am i kidding with my
reasons for living here
who am i fooling with my
excuse for moving here
you ain't no prince, no this aint your playground

somewhere, its there
just look at all the glass luxury condos everywhere
somewhere in brooklyn
we started looking
and i see you

somewhere in brooklyn there are princesses in white dresses
one thousand weddings set on court steps with new age blessings
we act so broke but its the blind eye we hide behind
and carefully refine the best life that money can buy

this ain't your false and phony
rich daddy sponsored fucking playground


from Damn Righteous, track released June 12, 2012
