I watch the skyline change over seamless days
From a topdeck view from the barricades
Where all the rudeboys and crooks wear all wear their meanest looks
Keeping the money making strictly off the books

I watch the kids move in on the underground
With a taste of danger and the realest sound
I watch the yuppies buy in and try to capitalize
On the pain and joy of a furtive mind

Tell me what to do today
Working nine to five, I cannot live like that
Because it seems like this city's geared to breed
Workers just to keep it alive
We get high, we get low
We confess what we know
After all it won't be long till we forget about it all

Amongst this urban debris
We learn to live like kings

And what else can we do
You're lucky if you got someone that cares for you
And don't try to fit in, just assume that you do
Let's get the full picture yeah your point of view

I watch the kids move in on the underground
With a taste of danger and the realest sound
I watch the yuppies buy in and try to capitalize
On the pain and joy of a furtive mind

Tell me what to do today
Working nine to five, I cannot live like that
Because it seems like this city's geared to breed
Workers just to keep it alive
We get high, we get low
We confess what we know
After all it won't be long till we forget about it all

Amongst this urban debris
We learn to live like kings

This is the sound of a thousand dreams
Impossible to overreach
Not because we don't try, but because
we aren't seen
And we don't know the meaning of prosperity

I watch the kids move in on the underground
With a taste of danger and the realest sound
I watch the yuppies buy in and try to capitalize
On the pain and joy of a furtive mind

Tell me what to do today
Working nine to five, I cannot live like that
Because it seems like this city's geared to breed
Workers just to keep it alive
We get high, we get low
We confess what we know
After all it won't be long till we forget about it all

Amongst this urban debris
We learn to live like kings
