lyrics

September Sky
Burned out street lights echo a sign
There’s a fine line between crime and the good side of town
Growing up in the projects or the condos uptown
Either way there's a price to pay if you don't turn around

September Sky...
When you want to let it go
But the image lives on in your mind...
Now the cold winds blow
Through September skies...

Long black towne car echoes as sign
As it passes by the beggar hustling nickels and dimes
Disparity is the cornerstone but I’ve got a rock
And I’ll bust out your windows before you make the next block

September Sky...
When you want to let it go
But the feeling lives on deep inside...
Still the cold winds blow
Through September, through September skies...

How do you understand
It just doesn't seem fair
so much hate, so much despair
We live in one world, we share this life
We share the air, we share the price...

Slingshots to car bombs echo a sign
Caskets and jail cells hold the victims of our time
Will you lock your doors and close your eyes and pray that you don’t see
The shadow in the darkness of the life you thought was free

September Sky...
When you want to let it go
But the tears well up in your eyes
Will the cold winds blow
Through September skies
