Default One of the many times I nearly met my grisly demise

This lyric is a pretty much exact rendering of one particular hour in my life...

If anybody complains about the repetition I'm going to get frantic on yo'.

Post Nightclub Nightmare

Somebody is calling your name
x 2

Free tequila sounded good at first
The final one of thirty was the worst
Quito, 3 am, downtown city grime
Soaked in low-rate liquor, not the best of times

Roads all looks the same
Gray and darkest blue
Muggers hide in corners
Hidden from my view

Middle of the city
Every house a trap
Deadly drunk and dizzy
Stepping on the cracks

This concrete kingdom amplifies
The scuffing of my feet
These streets are after me
This concrete kingdom amplifies
The scuffing of my feet
These streets are after me

Somebody is calling your name (x4)

Fall out of the taxi, stumble on a curb
Focus and defocus, lost with every turn
Now beyond redemption, now beyond retrieve
I’ll be gone forever, if no-one comes for me

Do not know my way home
Do not know where I am
Jump onto the main road
Pull up a police van

Officer, please help me
Buzz the radio
Call my name a hundred times
Til they guide me home

This concrete kingdom amplifies
The scuffing of my feet
These streets are after me

This concrete kingdom amplifies
The scuffing of my feet
These streets are after me

Somebody is calling your name (x4)

Now I'm gonna have a hangover in the morning after reading that.
Nice job DRMO.
I think most of us have been there and you've put over the experience nicely.
Like to see an unhappy ending though.

What! You'd rather I'd died?!

Well, I could change it to an unhappy ending. Its a lot easier for me to write it like that because it describes what really happened. And when honesty is easier it takes a lot of willpower for me to lie!

Yep!
As for lying...isn't that called artistic licence nowadays?
I get the vibe this all happened in a town your unfamiliar with.
Usually happened to me when holidaying abroad with me mates...many years ago.

Best I've seen yet.
