Chorus: I'm gonna curse this city if it robs me
I'm gonna curse this city if it robs me one more time
Before it even knew me it forgot me
I'm gonna curse this city if it robs me one more time

Yeah All around the world today
Power is the measure oh no
Power is the only drug they don't want you to remember oh no
All around the world power gets no pressure oh no
Power is the only drug you never got no lectures on

And hope showed up one day
Then all the people say
The time, the time has come
Alright let's give it a name and oh
Listen all my friends
Who's gospel is who's pain
From the Hudson to the Rhine
Every place every time

Back to Chorus

Yeah all around the world today
Power is the measure oh no
Power is the only drug they don't want you to remember oh no
If you really want to rise get your work done on someone else's time
In the prize ring of the world, it's all about the millionaire gods

And hope showed up one day
But don't name it leave it blank
Or sorrow gets the same name
And everyone makes everyone else pay
And oh, isn't this nice
I'll never see you in this life
From the Hudson to the Rhine
Every place every time

A million reasons one high or really?
Strait Machiavellian fears all around me
A national treasure passed out in the ally
Manhattan sky bridge all covered in rust
Ceo post madonna don't know what's up
He went blind to the world and mistook me for a G man.
Who envies who?
Who gave status to who?
What's the story with heaven now meet me at the pantheon
I checked my grandmothers ring I should have carried it on
Sent my bags to eden still at the gate
In the prize ring of the world look for me
I'll be the one who don't know
How to cheat
But I know

How to do this kind of thing
Yes I do

I'm gonna curse this city if it robs me one more time x 8

I"m gonna love this city if it only helps me shine shine shine
I'm gonna love this city if it only helps me shine shine shine
I'm gonna love this city but please don't make me try try try so hard
I'm gonna love this city if it only helps me shine shine shine

Those other cities just tried me
Told more than a few lies to me
So I cursed them kindly and was long gone
I"m gonna love this city
If it only helps me shine shine shine
I'm gonna love this city if
It only helps me shine shine shine
I'm gonna love this city but please don't make me try try try so hard/
I'm gonna love this city
If it only helps me shine shine shine
Those other cities don't know me
If you only knew how much they owed me
I was the right person in the wrong place
Good god almighty but
This city wont take no brides
It's got reasons if
It's on your side
I'm gonna love this city if it only only only
Helps me shine shine
