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 (repeat) 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 (repeat)
