Johny's in the basement
Mixing up the medicine
I'm on the pavement
Thinking about the government
The man in the trench coat
Badge out, laid off
Says he's got a bad cough
Wants to get it paid off
Look out kid
It's somethin' you did
God...

    It seems apparent that this song is a recipe for who to live underground without getting caught. I think of this song as being proto-rap.
