House of Pain remix feat. the Hub City

For reference:

Pack it up, pack it in
Let us begin
The city’s cavin’ in
Our future’s lookin’ grim

Tear the cul-de-sac up,
City trucks you’d better back up
Try and fill the hole and the whole street’ll act up

Get up, stand up, come on throw your hands up
If you feel like screamin’ come to the city meetin’
Council’s a funk fest, they’re always talkin’ junk
Yo we’ll bust them in the eye and then we’ll vote the punks out

1-800-junking, avenues all sunken
And we’ve got more crimes than there’s cops at a drunken
Top of the Hops, yeah we got props
From Caswell kids on the Hill
And their mom and their pops

Riverbank’s going down, riverbank’s going down
Pull down some trees and slump around
Slump around, slump up and slide down
Slump around, slump around
Slump up and slide down
Slump up, slump up and slide down
Slump, slump, slump
Slump, slump, slump
Slump, slump, slump
Slump, slump, slump
Slump, slump, slump
Slump, slump

City says it’s not them, it’s glacial till and backflow
If your shit starts to slip, hire a tractor backhoe
Word from your moms, don’t trust city comms
We’ve got more fault lines than the city’s got qualms

And just like old man Dayday, it’s returned
Water down below but up top we get burned
Baking like a flake on your fake grass in the hot sun
Finish up your mansion cause we want one

We’re all fools cause they’ll duel till they’re half deaf
While the inner city don’t care, all we have’s debt
They’ve got to chill, can’t just drill
Into the side of a shifting river bank hill

Riverbank’s going down, riverbank’s going down
Uproot some trees and slump around
Slump around, slump up and slide down
Slump around, slump around
Slump up and slide down
Slump up, slump up and slide down
Slump, slump

It’s the talk of the shop when the slope flops
Who’s left holding the bill when the bank drops
Don’t know who’s a prevaricator, like conspiracy city haters
Tryna block us all out like we’re downtown skater mayors

But we’re not going out like no drunk bridge
4 spans gone but we’ve still got one which
Reminds you of what’s gone and what’s yet to come
Put it out of your head the city downtown plan is dead

We’re coming to get ya, coming to get ya
Fill your prescription and city cops will arrest, yeah
Riverbank’s coming down, it’s all coming down
So light up some trees and slump around

Slump around, slump up and slide down
Slump around, slump around
Slump up and slide down
Slump up, slump up and slide down
Slump, slump, slump
Slump, slump, slump
Slump, slump, slump
