July 5th pre-noon
Start drinking to soon
Drove down to the river
Dialed her number and shivered

And he said

Listen girl I'm short on time
I messed up big but this is mine
Pack up quick and bring the gun
They're on their way and not for fun
I'll explain when you get here
Meet me at the Broadway pier
I'm in a grey Silverado
I'll be drinking horchatas

July 5th pre fall
She heard the voices down the hall
The footsteps came closer
She aimed as she loaded

And she screamed

You motherfuckers hit the floor
I'll kill the first nigger who comes through that door
Her courage high her nerves of steel
The effect of 'good stuff' is very real
Within that pause she painted on some jeans
Threw on her sneakers and dropped to one knee
The door swung open they meet eye to eye
