Talking Too Loud

by Young Things



the lower east side used to be very different but how would you ever remember that?


Go back one score ten in time
When alphabet spelled violent crimesnd New Yoricans wrote their rhymes
And all the while inspired macks
Would isolate percussion tracks
They moved their lips and birthed the rap

Everybody’s talking too loud
Everybody’s working for someone
I don’t know why

Crime would sink but the rents would rise
ABC’s were gentrified
Destination riverside

Coffee house became coffee houses
Poverty became property
A culture clash reduced to ash and packaged as


You can dress me up
But you cannot take me out


released June 3, 2013
produced by Mike Comparetto. mixed by Vance Powell. from the album 'Hello Love // Goodbye Sexual'.
