"New Blues..."

Can ya listen to
the heartbeat
of the sou' street
from tha' backseat
as they whistle
to a new beat
from the front seat
with their white teeth
and ya starin' eyed
straight thru'
to the ones who
took da momma too
and ya daddy cries
inside
while you're outside
cause its all right
being upright
til ya outtasight
then its back to night.

Ain't no sunshine
in tha' day's light
just more night
as ya gather roun'
to lay it down
n' play tha' clown
cause its damn tight
bein' forthright
and standin' tall
as ya weigh it all
tho' ya feelin' small
cause ya sista cries
inside
while shes outside
and it ain't right
but ya still fight.

Streetlights
are the star lights
that ya wish bye
as they drive by
n' tha' sparkle high
as tha' caps sigh
light the city sky
callin' inside
and outside
as tha' dreams fry
and the babies cry
from the windows still
as ya guts spill
and ya eyes see -
nothin'.
