    Lyrics

    If you start here late no one will know what you did
    No the streets are straight it's the soul that's crooked
    I've been treated fine I've been treated elegantly
    But I'm not one for bathing in the waters of plenty

    East is East West is West
    And Bowery is screaming while Delancey rests
    Well I'm south of the skating but I'm north of the cash
    I could sure use the money but I'm ashamed to ask

    The traffic has buried all of last nights rain
    The words are all different but the accent is the same

    The sun is white and the moon is gray
    And the river is black blue and green
    The young are young and the old are old
    And there are no shades of gray in between

    There's at least ten different strains of smoke in the air
    And my prints are on them all to prove I was there
    And I love the curses but I'm not one for the trenches
    And I do love the walking but thank god for the benches

    it's hard to tell where green begins and the city gray stops
    I guess the trees all bought their armor at second hand shops
    My second had is working but the minute hand is broke again
    I know time will pass but I don't know when

    The sun is white and the moon is gray
    And the river is black blue and green
    The young are young and the old are old
    And there are no shades of gray in between
    And there are no shades of gray in between

    I know the great ones have been here but where I cant tell
    There's dreams here a plenty but they're being withheld
    And I'm more impressed with the closed doors than the ones that are open
    The whole place tells time by a tower clock tha'ts broken

    The pigeons are ravens and the gulls are vultures
    And trash is art and cash is culture

    The sun is white and the moon is gray
    And the river is black blue and green
    The young are young and the old are old
    And there are no shades of gray in between
    There are no shades of gray in between
    There are no shades of gray in between
