Flat Black

Iíd like to have a nice truck
but it would just wind up gettingí stolen
Fresh paint in this hoodís like
flashiní cash on the street
This tiny place they call a live/work space
comes with no garage
I use urban camouflage:
I painted this beater flat black

Flat black: Honey, just get in
Flat black: Uglyís not a sin
Flat black: Letís take a ride
See this town from the other side

Iíd like to have a nice place
but nice places tend to get broke in
The trick around here is
lookiní like thereís nothiní to steal
This city of gold has a lot Iím told,
but if you get your share you better hide it
Thereís 3 deadbolt locks on my door
and a coat of flat black

Flat black: Honey, come on in
Flat black: The door is just a skin
Flat black: Itís warm and safe inside
You just have to step across the great divide
Flat black: Itís just a color of paint
Flat black: to look like somethiní it ainít
Flat black: a thin coat of ìnot thereî
Hey, I wonít bite (at least much) I swear
