lyrics

High on N.Y.

I met a subterranean pirate
In the dungeons of New York
Where cargo ships on metal strips
Bring bodies back and forth
You try to make a million
Yeah, you almost go insane
Out on the edge, where your life is quick
The vultures scream and prey

Welcome the big time
Where the wheels are lined with gold
Expensive women and shots of bourbon
The dealers, bought and sold

Everybody’s on a high in New York City
Must be the smoke they’re breathing in
Everybody’s on a high in New York City
Better get your tickets while you can

Spoke with a man they call Mr. Jones
Because he always needs a shot
He’s got a big back yard for his cardboard box
On the slopes of Central Park
They got horses in front of the courtyards
Brownstone stories touching the sky
Yellow cabs and concrete slabs
A landscape so unkind

Then I see some lonely child
Makes me just wanna break down and cry
Some people never had the choice
They were just born into this life

Everybody’s on a high in New York City
Must be the smoke they’re breathing in
Everybody’s on a high in New York City
Better get your tickets while you can
