Great lyrics! Thanks Donnie

A bit rough and heavy, just as a city life ;)

City Life

i’m walking down the block
i’m in the city-scape
chasing down a break
out here to meet my fate

every day is new
every day is change
have to ride the tidal wave
as all things rearrange

stores they come and go
stories write themselves
neighbors lived in heaven
now they’re in a living hell

this city has a life
a life that’s all it’s own
that neighborhood was live
till it died, dead and gone

CHO x 2
this is the city life
this is the place i roam
this is the place where i reside
and i just call my home/ own

i’m still paying rent
for this apartment house
in the past five years
the neighbors priced me out

landlord raised my rent
he’s grabbing every cent
i’m out here grabbing straws
looking for a place to rest

now the rent is rising
every place i look
and every landlord that i meet
is looking like a crook

they just want my money
don’t care if i can eat
they don’t care if i sleep out here
in the naked street

CHO x 2


some dudes in neighborhoods
they’re out here packing heat
they’re shooting little kids
by accident out in the street

they’re shooting grown adults
they’ll say “it’s not my fault”
cops push em in the car
lock em in the vault

then march off to court
get charges for their sins
the lives they took you know
they’re never coming back again

now some will feel remorse
others just shrug it off
but either way the game they played
it was a total loss

CHO x 2
