Trophy Scars – Nola (New Orleans, LA)

PART 3 of 3.
I fly back down to Michigan
Bring the picture of the key
I show the locksmith Nigel
And then he laughs at me

The key is something digital
He can’t recreate
So I track her down to New Orleans
To ask her on a date

Man I should’ve done this
A way long time ago
I pretend it was an accident
When I’m at the same hotel

“Hey there, miss, remember me?”
“We used to have a ball.”
She tells me she’s excited
And agrees that we should talk

Yes
Let’s have a drink
Let’s have a talk
Let’s meet at your room at nine
So we do
We drink some wine
We talk about old times
Then she cries
Says her sorry
I tell her that it’s fine
I move in close
I hold her tight
I tell her to relax or

If
she
moves
I’ll
break
her
neck

This is for
Everything
Anytime
Anything
Breaking me
Leaving me
Stealing keys
Comes to an end

She
Cries
Stop
But
I don’t see
Why I should
When she
Didn’t for me

I
Say
Fine
But
It’s
Too late

I didn’t mean to kill her
But I gone done did it
I wish I could’ve told her
It was all over
Love, love, love
And money

So I grab her bottom lip
I pull her mouth wide open
Then I pull out my key
It was covered in
Stom – ach
Ac – Id

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Then I book my flight
I head back to Geneva
I don’t believe in God
But I do believe I’m evil

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
I think about my life
I ponder my decisions
I walk into the bank
With 20/20 vision

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
I open up my lock box
I only found a note
It reads “I’m sorry that I left you”
“But you have been set up, love..”

Rub my eyes and turn around
Sure enough I had been found
two guys approached me
Put a gun to my head
They told me how lucky
I am to be dead
I kneel down and feel a pinch
All I taste is smoke and soot

Don’t trust
Your luck

Played my cards and now I see
This whole time she was playing me
The only people you can trust
Are in control of your blood’s luck

I want to buy a place in the French Quarter and transfer my job to New Orleans…Bad idea?

My mom is trying to talk me out of it saying that the crime is so bad. I so desire to live someplace where you can walk to get from place to place as opposed to tedious driving. I live in Baton Rouge now and the traffic here is awful. I would really love to experience the French Quarter life.

Can anyone suggest realtors or condominums?

Is the crime that bad?

Does anyone current live in the French Quarter or even nearby neighborhoods (Garden District, etc)? How is it?
I’ve gone to French Quarter and New Orleans a lot since my family shops there a lot. I’m familiar with the area however I’ve never gone alone.

The French Quarter is a safe place to live and one of the most charming sections of any city in America. It has definitely gone up scale and is no longer anything like the French Quarter seen in old movies like A Streetcar named Desire. Real Estate prices are very high. Many famous people live there from Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to Delta Burke and until recently Ann Rice. Buying property in the Quarter may be more difficult but not impossible. The warehouse district adjacent to that section has a lot of upscale condos. I used to live in a condo/apt complex there called The Cotton Mill. (see the link below) It was great. Hope you decide to make the move. You will love New Orleans.

Does anyone know how to make a Jester drink from Bourbon Street?

The last time we were in New Orleans, a bunch of us got Jesters (the world strongest drink) made with 190 proof grain alcohol (everclear I assume). We loved it! we all had one and had the best time! Love to make them at home, but don’t have a clue of how. Can somebody help!

That sounds like a Hand Grenade, but sold by a bar that doesn’t have permission to use the trademarked name:
