Ice On The Sheets
Ice on the Streets - Sharpen Your Teeth
Lyrics:

Committing crimes and we're running down the alley,
I am the captain, you're in the galley
I'm with this girl, she said that she was hungry,
We just got done swapping our IDs

Ice on the sheets, look at the floor
Soon as I can walk, I walk out the door and never stop
Ice on the sheets, look at the floor
As soon as I can walk, I walk out the door and never stop

I'm lookin' at an old photograph,
It looked like we took it at gunpoint so I had to laugh
Look at the ice, look at the door
Ice on the sheets and I'm on the floor,
I never stop

A wholeness comes and you feelin' a phenomenon,
I can't die, I just keep going on
Got there and a brand new ?
Don't want nothing but a band now, bad karma beside me

Ice on the sheets, a week's worth of pay,
And all the mundane, you got to where you look at your shoes
And you say, hey hey
I'm out of breath, I'm out of wits,
I'm out of these every day of the week, oh yeah

Committing crimes and we're running down the alley,
I am the captain, you're in the galley
I'm with this girl, she said that she was hungry,
We just got done swapping our IDs

Committing crimes and we're running down the alley,
I am the captain, you're in the galley
I'm with this girl, she said that she was hungry,
We just got done swapping our IDs

Like back in the day where everywhere was in sticks
They used to go to bars and they'd dance in lines and get sick
You dance, you dance and then you'd dance some more
You put on your disco shoes and dance 'til there's holes in the floor

Back in the days when they died their hair,
They still wouldn't dance in the lack of kids that cared
Back in the days when they danced to death
Back in the days when they banged their head
There was dance and dance and being under ?
? for drunk and we laughed

The disco came and they did some coke
They didn't have codeine and the biggest joke
Was they're deaf, they're fucked, they're fucked, they fought, they fucking fought
And now ? a little red lipstick, a red bra, and a cheap cheap trick,
And that's me

I brung your kids to the house, to the home to, the schools,
In the bad place
Yeah how long? You don't care they aren't yours
They aren't staying, didn't know nothin', but time is cheap
I got nothin', I got a kid now, I got friends now
How have you been?
Uh huh.

Committing crimes and we're running down the alley,
I am the captain, you're in the galley
I'm with this girl, she said that she was hungry,
We just got done swapping our IDs

Committing crimes and we're running down the alley,
I am the captain, you're in the galley
I'm with this girl, she said that she was hungry,
We just got done swapping our IDs

Committing crimes and we're running down the alley,
I am the captain, you're in the galley
I'm with this girl, she said that she was hungry,
We just got done swapping our IDs

Committing crimes and we're running down the alley,
I am the captain, you're in the galley
I'm with this girl, she said that she was hungry,
We just got done swapping our IDs
