lyrics

Shove into the A Train
Scream and cuss
Panhandler sings
Into his empty cup

The rich flaunt keys to Gramercy Park
Here, nobody gives a flying f***

Graffiti on the subway walls
Kids run in packs until dawn
Spit on anyone who dares to judge
Attitude is in the blood

New year's comes like a burial
Times Square is a funeral
The world is falling apart
But New York doesn't care at all

They still sell crack in Alphabet City
And jump turnstyles on the F

Graffiti on the subway walls
Kids run in packs until dawn
Spit on anyone who dares to judge
Attitude is in the blood

Mayor may have cleaned 42nd
But New Yorkers can still find the sex
NYPD don't pick up the phone
They're just spread too thin

Black ship on the horizon
Illuminated by the moon
On a sea of skyscrapers
A harbinger of doom

Evil coming like a flood
Manhattan drowns in the waves
Say goodbye to the big apple
With middle fingers raised

Graffiti on the subway walls
Kids run in packs until dawn
Spit on anyone who dares to judge
Attitude is in the blood
Spit on anyone who dares to judge
Attitude is in the blood
