about

My most beautiful city hides some hideous problems.

lyrics

Goodbye to San Francisco
And everything that it used to mean
Where are you Ferlinghetti?
Your city lights are going dim.
Goodbye to the peace and love,
And revolution in the streets
Hello to the Google Bus
And LOL and OMG

The squatters and the nodders
The walking dead on Market Street
The Teslas and Audis
And all the inequality
What could be so bad
About artisanal coffee?
About the lines around the block
To buy a pastry at Tartine?

I can't pay my rent today. I can't come back if I move away.
I can't pay my rent today. I can't come back if I move away.
I can't pay my rent today. I can't come back if I move away.
I can't pay my rent today. I can't come back if I move away.

A bag of chips, A side o' guac
A veggie taco with sauce on top
On every corner, On every block
Another hipster coffee shop.
Send in the hookers! Gimme more crime!
And anything you can't gentrify!
I wanna move, but I can't find
A place I can afford on my dime.
