Break 2:
E5

Synth Break 1 (played over verse progression)

Verse 2:
Icky thump with a lump in my throat, grab a coat and I was freakin', I was ready to go
Yes, where beside the head she had one white eye, one blank stare lookin' up, lyin' there
On the stand near her hand was a candy cane, black rum, sugar cane, dry ice, somethin' strange
La la la la la la la la la la laa laa laa

Verse 3:
White Americans, what, nothing better to do? Why don't you kick yourself out? You're an 
too
Who's usin' who? What should we do? Well, you can't be a pimp and a prostitute too

(Synth plays)

Icky thump handcuffed to a bunk, robbed blind, looked around and there was nobody else
Left alone, I hit myself with a stone, went home, and learned how to clean up after myself

Break
