Lyrics

The sirens and subwoofers pounding city beats fade further down the strip
I slide one shell in the chamber and nine more up into the clip
I know by now the stars are out but they’re not above these streets
And I hope in turn the city lights keep heaven’s eyes from looking down on me

The edge of the city, is like the edge of the world
making soldiers of boys and sentinels out of the girls
I’m just here for one thing and I’m not gonna stay
So I’ll take what I want when I want and the bangers bang away

Three days long and my brother’s gone and he’s left me here alone with his son
I premeditate his killer’s fate as I rest my itchy fingers on the gun.
Streetlights hopping to it one-two-three but nothing steals my gaze
And that asshole in the house across the street still don’t know he’s seen better days

The edge of the city is like the edge of the world
making devils of boys and dark angels out of the girls
I’m just here for one thing and I’m not gonna stay
So I’ll take what I want when I want and the bangers bang away

Knock, knock, knock upon the door, inside a dead man waits
The smell of gin and chronic as I cross his castle gate
A torn and tattered lazy boy makes a king out of a man
The look in his eyes is his surprise as death sits in my hand….and I go…
Pop, pop, pop, pop, one-two-three-four drop that man onto the floor
Red blood crawls across white skin now you can’t you let the sinner sin no more.

At the edge of the city, at the edge of the world
They’re taking the hearts out of the boys and the innocence out of the girls
I’m just here for one thing and I’m not gonna stay
So I’ll take what I want when I want and the bangers bang away
The edge of the city… is not your concern
They’re throwing gas on the fire, and they’re sitting back and watching it burn
I’m just here for one thing, and at the end of the day
I’m gonna take what I want and let the bangers bang away
I’m gonna take what I want and let the bangers bang away
I’m gonna take what I want and let the bangers bang away
