TO THE CITY

I believe in nothing more than those who got and those who ain’t
Your house to the poor house the line you cross if you can’t pay
You know if you been there how you gonna tow the line  
I’m alright Jack till you feel the cracks until then you’re just treading time

Oh till you’ve been there, how you gonna see for us we’re just doing time
Oh till you’ve seen here, nothing gonna change their minds we’re just simply fine

Skin cracks from the whip on your backs you don’t scream you don’t make a sound
Tread heavy, tread light it’s the sound of a fight say nothing just let your feet pound
Ain’t nothing but a fear a whisper in your ear we don’t let it all cry out
If the silence prevails putting legs through their tails we keep running till we all run out

Give up to the city, a city makes a grown man cry
Give up to the city, to the streets where we live and die
Give up to the city, the place that gave you your name
Give up to the city, make a cool man go insane
And I said
Oh till you’ve been there, how you gonna see for us we’re just doing time
Oh till you’ve seen here, nothing gonna change their minds we’re just simply fine

Give up to the city, a city makes a grown man cry
Give up to the city, to the streets where we live and die
Give up to the city, the place that gave you your name
Give up to the city, make a cool man go insane
Oh till you’ve been there, how they gonna pay for us we’re just killing time
Oh till you’ve seen here, nothing gonna change their minds we’re just simply fine
And I said
Oh till you’ve been there, how they gonna pay for us we’re just killing time
Oh till you’ve seen here, nothing gonna change their minds we’re just simply fine
