Cannibal Ox – Gotham (Ox City) lyrics
Ah, you think darkness is your ally
But you’re merely adapted to dark
I was born in it, molded by it
I didn’t see the light until I was already a man
By then it was nothing to me but blinding
You are now tuned in to the adventures of Vast Man and Goblin

We stay in shape like Porsches on blocks
Where ?women’?is gorgeous and kids stay strapped like Bugs Bunny Jordans
Its crazed, on strips where eyes is forever glazed
Like lady lemon cakes? in an age is a phase? everything trying to get paid
I miss some of my friends one time ima see at the end, at some point
Can't hold on to every bit of strands
Trying to get over forbidden-ness(or bitterness) like ban hands
So raise em up to the roof, even though some are roofless
Everything ain't sweet, tell that to those thats living toothless
Ima always be with my fam, like boys chasing cute girls
And stay straight through the swirls

Knowing everything ain't diamonds and pearls
Keep it up, that's positive, patience is a virtue
Don't let anything that irritates hurt you
Cuz we ain't gonna lose our top
Even when, struggling at the bottom, Gotham
Yo I got you, like yo I got em, Gotham
Got you, got you

This is our city, New York Gritty
Gotham, I got em, Ox city
Right in the face of death, I show no pity
That's why all of my exs still love me
Wifey was Diane, mistress was Selena
Love that Amazon, but the Kruger was meaner
(Huh) plus I love to demean her
I be in Mecca, she stayed in Medina
Cipher unknown, we red hot
With two cops on roof tops that's dead shots
The Duo dynamic is call,
Once we move these packs to D.C. we're goin ball
We running this city as far as the eyes can see
The shadows betray you cause they belong me
Illogicality, deception ain't it?
The reality is we all initiated
Into the league of shadows
I told Raven to keep her eye on the sparrow
Iron Galaxy clique
Clayface will shape-shift and you can get a face lift
With a box cutter, that's mad cows son
(Hell) you know I'm a ox-cutter
Because Ox is so gutter
From 125 all the way to Sutta

Knowing everything ain't diamonds and pearls
Keep it up, that's positive, patience is a virtue
Don't let anything that irritates hurt you
Cuz we ain't gonna lose our top
Even when, struggling at the bottom, Gotham
Yo I got you, like yo I got em, Gotham
Got you, got you
