Well
First of all

I couldn't even see his face.
I couldn't see his face.
He was holding a gun in his hand.
Umm... I was thinking...
This is a dangerous place..
This is a dangerous place..

I said
I'm nervous as hell from this stuff. I thought those guys were going to kill me for sure. They ganged up on me like that. I couldn't believe it. Look, I'm still shakin'. Weird. There out in the streets like that. It's a dangerous place. It's a dangerous place.

So
Suddenly
These two guys appear in front of me.
They stopped.
Real aggressive.
Start at me
You know.
What's that?
What's that on that tape?
What do you got there? "
I said
Huh?
They said
What are you talking into that for?
I said
It's just a tape, you know
Well play it for me
I said "oh
No"
I put it off as long as I could.
And finally they turned it on
You know
They grabbed it from me.
Took it away from me.
Turned it on.
And it said
He held a gun in his hand. This is a dangerous place.
They said
What dangerous place?
What gun?
You're a policeman!
And the deeper I talked
The worse I got into it.
I talked
I told him... I said

Look man, I'm not talkin'....
It went on forever.
Anyway
I finally unbuttoned my shirt
And said

Look, look... I'm in this band, you know, I'm in this band you know, and we're makin' a recording, you know. It's about New York City, it's about crime in the streets...
The explanation was going nowhere
But

Finally
They just kinda let me go
I don't know why.
So I walk around the corner

And I'm like shakin' like a leaf

And I thought
This is a dangerous place

Who should appear
But two policeman.
