"In the City" as written by and Charles Edward Daniels....
In a back alley down at Union Place, I saw a man get killed for his fix
The little girl that lives next door, she's fucking for her family providing for her home
And when the sky starts turning black, another mother is crying because her son is dying
Here in the city you can never close your eyes, because that man next to you is the devil in disguise

Ch: Death, destruction, pollution and corruption, the city never sleeps it's a local genocide.
And there's no heaven when you're in hell, so live it and breathe it cause there's no way you can deceive it.

Look out the window and see the ghetto bird, it's looking for the criminal that's been disturbed
The sounding sirens awake all the thugs because they wanna get their hands on the big bad cop
So walk the block and catch a glimpse of my life, i tell you man it ain't so nice
I love the city cause it never sleeps, it's filled with thugs, hooligans, and freaks

Ch: Death, destruction, pollution and corruption, the city never sleeps it's a local genocide
And there's no heaven when you're in hell, so live it and breathe it cause there's no way you can deceive it.
