there's a city i moved to in south northwest
it rains a bit much but this place is the best
there's artisan everything, boutique stores
food carts, amusements and smorgasbords

and everyone's mellow and everyone's chill
like aliester crowley they do what they wilt,
tipping is big there so don't be a jerk,
if you stay for a while you might find work

in portland
somebody's porch light is always on
in portland
you better get there soon
before it becomes uncool

there's all different genders and all different creeds
crystals and herbs and astrology
critical theory and radical zines
protestors gleefully beat by police

there's mountains and rivers and endless parks
reefer is legal and everyone sparks
you can surf on the couches for ten years or more
and everyone's friendly until they ignore you

in portland--

and everyone's artists
and putting on shows
elaborate beards
and eccen-teric clothes
30's are 20's
and 20's are teens
with shit-eating smiles
and shiny white teeth

in portland!!!! (ahhhh ahhhh)
in portland!!!!! (ahhhh ahhh)
portland!!!!! (woah woah)
portland!!! (it's no joke!!!)

there's a place that i've heard of where death is unknown
creative existence the only goal
and no one has money but nobody minds
they'll pay the rent in their own good time

in portland---
