Neighborhoods once low in value
Restructured for returns in profit
Cute new vintage businesses
In an effort to increase tax bases
Cost of renting maximizes
Due to the decline in crime
Garbage magically disposed of
Police patrolling all the time

Highland Park, Boyle Heights, and Echo Park

Native residents now displaced
Unjustly profiled by their race
Gentrifiers hate our culture
File another noise complaint
Pushing out the working class
While complaining about the homelessness
Neveau Riche? We were here first
Scared to be placed in a hearse

Mad dogged, you're unwelcome guests
Are you feeling the discomfort? Guess who feels worse
If I smashed your beloved personal property
Your new Bohemian lifestyle still has viler effects on me

Long live the memory of Alejandro Nieto, executed by the S.F.P.D.
For wearing his on-duty taser in a gentrified neighborhood
