It's way too hot today, for a human being
There's nothing worth hearing here, and nothing worth seeing
The city is dead. streets are in a coma
He'd like to steal a car. and drive it to Sonoma
And she is in a cafe drinking coffee with a clown
While he goes swimming with the sharks
In Koreatown

It's way too hot today to hear yourself thinking
They're building a subway here, and the city is sinking
Cultures clash, Radios are blaring
Old cars crash, But we are beyond caring
And she is on the freeway as the world comes crashing down
And he's sinking like a stone
In Koreatown


It's way too hot today to get arrested
His hands are both handcuffed now and the freeway's congested
On the way downtown everything gets quiet
He's been upside-down ever since the riots
And she's in Tijuana weaving feathers in a crown
And he is just a shadow now
In Koreatown

Landlords search for a new exemption
Their shelter offers no redemption
She heads south on a shooting spree
He goes down with a guilty plea
And she comes when he's dreaming, in a scarlett wedding gown
While he's sleeping in his cell
In Koreatown

It's way too hot today...
