Verse 1:
This is the finish my friend, this is the end
It's a revolution, it's a civilian revenge
There's no need to move or adjust your television
Whenever an era dies, another era begins
These American fights, these American wars
These American stripes, these American stars,
But these American cages have American bars
We hunger for truth, so we headed for ya'll
Towers are crumbling, bridges are falling
Limits are fading, but normal is boring
Looking at time move, aggressively forward
Looking at days just, just vanish before me
You wanted the Benz, but you couldn't afford it
Now you would kill to put your foot in a Taurus
It's a different madness, they would never abandon us
But this is a crisis, prepare for disaster

Chorus:
Start spreading the news (start, start, start, start spreading the news)
I'm leaving today (and I'm gone, and I'm gone, and I'm gone just like that )
I want to be a part of it (be, be, be, be, yea)
New York, New York, New York

Breaker breaker nine breaker breaker one nine
Could you please get an operator on the phone line
This is not a riot, it's way much more than that
These people are dying, we are under attack
Wait, let me call you back, let me get my strap
(cause) We ain't taking shit, so therefore we're fighting back
We ain't waiting on the line for a 9-1-1-9-9 whatever man,
I ain't got time for all this nonsense
Enemy responses, ain't a dial tone in our home on that continent
Got me in these bandages, this jungle is a fundament
Man I swear they sleeping in your conscience, so they slumbering
So we break the peace to get a piece of what we wanted yea
Act like we new to this, not think I'm rummaging
Let them know we run this shit
And let them know just how you feel the way your country is
Now look how beautiful destruction is, bloah

Start spreading the news (start spreading the news)
I'm leaving today (I'm leaving, I'm leaving yea)
I want to be a part of it (be a part of New York)
New York, New York, (New York) New York
