The sun is a yellow moon,  across the river.

I'm in the mix on the low, my frequency is where the neon lights glow 
y'all remember the peep shows and freak hoes around 42nd, New York was hectic
I used to chill at the Broadway Arcade among the reckless
I was a loose wreck, wrecked out of sight in the upper decks at Yankee Stadium at night, Blinded by the lights like
3am no traffic, I'm wandering the streets no peace 
Take an incision into the city's soul while she sleeps
Snoring out these beats, it's pulsing in my veins
My brain waves vibe with the train's maze
And the steam smoking from the gutters got my eyes morphing, electric green iris, Thoughts exploding on papyrus  
Sometimes I wish it was back in the days 
When cats would sling oregano, calling it purple haze
And you could ride the A uptown Harlem way
No people, empty cars, bright lights, Broadway 

The sun is a yellow moon, across the river

The city's changed a lot, it's re-arranged a lot
But the same intoxicated spirit caught 
Scribbling in chalk on blocks broken,  smoking words, choking 
On gun-fire from another glock that spoke in, such a way to leave a shirt soaking
Blood red, hey I run red's risky,  I guess I'm feeling frisky
Eyes watch they miss me.  I'm gonna twist up in the mist and go and see Jah with me  
Haters can't trip me, let me tell y'all quickly 
Bout these streets, and sheets of Hudson sunsets that lift me 
With the strength to set the sword in stone, strictly, to the hilt. 
Built to last in this concrete mass of noxious gas 
Where fast lives are cast into the annals of the past like 
Street symbols, through streaked windows and blurred lights
The hieroglyphics of the night 
Like broken windows, shattered mementos of the fast life 
Ghosts of the city living past life

The sun is  a yellow moon  across the river
