I'm taking the side streets
And I'm cruising down the alley ways
And I'm feeling the cool breeze across my face
I'm losing to find and I'm breaking to fix
'Cause I'm not fit to go on like this

Music in my head, the rhythm keeps me fed
These sounds surround me in these in high frequencies
There's no place like home there's, no place like home
Stone alone in the city of bastard roots

When I'm about to go crazy, 'cause I'm still living here
I just get my friends together and we dance, dance, dance
'Cause this is the state of the world, this is the state of the world
This city tells me what it's like to live

Hey, bike messenger, "What's your name?"
Have you got the time to talk to me?
Tell you what? We'll sit on this here stoop
And talk all about you, we'll just keep sitting here
Till you roll on through

When I'm about to go crazy, 'cause I'm still living here
I just get my friends together and we dance, dance, dance
'Cause this is the state of the world, this is the state of the world
This city tells me what it's like to live

'Cause this is the state of the world
'Cause this is the state of the world
'Cause this is the state of the world
'Cause this is the state of the world

Serpico, he's still around screwed up police ya might
Get found, city crime's for city cops
You've got to know the streets you rock
The subway tells the story here
This is the place to disappear

'Cause this is the state of the world
'Cause this is the state of the world
'Cause this is the state of the world
'Cause this is the state of the world

'Cause this is the state of the world
'Cause this is the state of the world
'Cause this is the state of the world
'Cause this is the state of the world

'Cause this is the state of the world
'Cause this is the state of the world
'Cause this is the state of the world
'Cause this is the state of the world
'Cause this is the state of the world

And I'll die in my open mind
I live in my open mind
And I'll die in my open mind
I live in my open mind
And I'll die in my open mind
I live in my open mind
And I'll die in my open mind
