Inspired by the street art of the same name, and by a conversation with an old fellow who seemed nice until he started saying some of the most racist shit I have ever heard.


Well we'll never need robots 'cause people are cheaper
Supply and demand and the surplus gets deeper
The people on this highway are all slowly dying
There's no way to stop it but they're always trying

I watch them move in here and drink this valley dry
Burn up their broken dreams 'til they choke the sky

Nobody dares to do what's right
Smog City be my home tonight
Won't you be my home tonight

Uninvited guests make the world feel thicker
Breathing my air and drinking my liquor
I don't own my car or the room that I sleep in
And the clogged arteries of the world keep creeping

I keep it loaded just 'cause we're gonna go one day
Sometimes I think I might thin a couple out along the way

Someday there's gonna be a fight
Smog City be my home tonight
Won't you be my home tonight

When the final showdown hits and death is in the air
You best be ready 'cause no one's gonna care

Don't you know the earth might shake tonight
Cities burning in the firelight
Grab your weapon and hold on tight
Smog City won't you be my home tonight
Won't you be my home tonight
