Deep dark and the street's hot, Basehead giving you a glare
Makes a move towards your direction but you show that you're not scared
Seems like things ready to pop but you don't know how it's gonna go
Now he reaches for his waistband and time is moving slow

Your heart is beating faster
You wonder is he getting ready to blast ya
As he moves closer and closer
He pulls his hand out and he shows ya

A packet? Of cigarettes?
Marlboros to be completely correct
His hands were dark and cold
His face was sharp and old
Probably due to those Marlboros
And now that you got a better look
The fear is leaving
Cause it was seeming
Earlier he was a Demon
But looks can be deceiving
You still keep your guard up
Opening his mouth, now he starting to barter
You decline his offer
You ain't a fan of cancer
Seems like he did not like that answer
He opens his mouth and in laughter
Sings a song of candor

This ain't no poison
This is your panacea
