I’m from the city of light, with a sky of vanilla
And in the summer it feels like a hundred degrees
Walking the traps trying to escape the map
To when writers ran the line and transits ran the gambit
Thirteen sitting in a park, sipping wine casks
I couldn’t paint so I rhymed to the writers
‘nasty arts’ ran my line evading cop cars
Paint stained hands and fame like Manson
Cans and markers, country road parkers
Until the government pigs had all the paint washed
And so the walls where the colors once played
White washed, shitty, all grey, all black

Known as the city of churches home of the serial killer
Where i’m from you might see pressure mc
Ninety three was my **** i’m trying to take it back
With nothing but an ego and rap to get me by
Liquor store just to score me a four track recorder
Thought I could rip, bro trust me I fought for this ****
And treats a starter like a fresh piece of meat, greet the carving knife
I’d lay waiting, train stations and parks my audience
We’d rock to a beat box, before that **** was clichéd
Better years of my life to pave roads
The only secret to this **** is one that time will tell
You’re in the city of light
