All the sidewalks in the city Al the pavement cracked and old And the construction Oh, what a pity Never gets done in the cold Street lights blinking Pot holes sinking Needles lay on the ground And all the politicians Making promises but They don’t come around The Broadway Lights Are dim tonight The Broadway lights are dim… Tonight, fueled by moonlight To stay alive You must survive The night Fueled by gunfight The city’s scared, we’re not prepared, Tonight All the homeless, all the hopeless All the litter lines the road All the jobless It’s fericoius Shelters on overload Business closes Overdoses See the cops and scatter Crowds of people, march together In the streets screaming “black lives matter" The Broadway Lights Are dim tonight The Broadway lights are dim… Tonight, fueled by moonlight To stay alive You must survive The night Fueled by gunfight The city’s scared, we’re not prepared, Tonight

about

Lara Hope & The Ark-Tones kick off 2023 with a new single and music video for "The City's Scared". A bit of a departure from their signature sound, "The City's Scared" blends elements of garage, surf and post-punk with with bold torchy vocals, to tell the tale of what many cities and small towns across America (and throughout the world) are currently experiencing as a result of the pandemic, social injustice, and economic uncertainty.
