Kings Cross

By Constantine

The homeless that you sheltered are long gone.
The trains bring their herds of human cattle.
Now Snow White is pimped out from the Disney store.

The midland grand hotel has been reborn,
A Victorian dream that few now can afford.
The homeless that you sheltered are long gone.

And burger bars there used to be no lack,
Selling rancid meat, chips, cocaine and crack.
Now Snow White is pimped out from the Disney store.

Armed police march around here every day,
For some reason. it makes me feel less safe.
The homeless that you sheltered are long gone.

The prostitutes would offer a good time,
with sleight of hand would rob their punter blind.
Now Snow white is pimped out from the Disney store.

I know things seem better than yesterday,
But nothing solved; it’s just been moved away.
The homeless that you sheltered are long gone.
Snow white is pimped out from the Disney store.
