Walking on the streets of D.C.
On the east coast where I live, You say what's the problem
What's with this angry kid
You don't like the way I walk, Or the way I talk,
Or the way I swing my hands,
You don't like the words I speak, or the thoughts I think
And I know you'll never understand

You know
On the east coast, we ride until we die
You know,
Well there's a place inside my mind,
Yeah a place you'll never find,
There's a place inside my mind, walk this way
You know

And wouldn't it be perfect if I could sit with you?
And we would change a thing or two, we would change a thing or two,
We would change the way you think, we would change the way I think,
We can't change the way they think so we're not changin' anything

You know
On the east coast, we ride until we die
You know,
Well there's a place inside my mind,
Yeah a place you'll never find,
There's a place inside my mind, we'll leave today
You know

'Cause on the east coast we ride, until the day we die
Well there's a place inside my mind,
Yeah a place you'll never find,
There's a place inside my mind walk this way
Well there's a place inside my mind,
Yeah a place you'll never find,
There's a place inside my mind we'll leave today
You know
