lyrics

No sleep in your dreams
But the night breaks so so so subtly
Do you see
White fences cracked alongside sidewalks
With children's chalk
Outlining sorry saps with empty thoughts
And bullets for brains
Does this make me insane?

Moan, if need be scream
Endearing lust waits so so so silently
Can it be?
My propensities alongside sidewalks
Replace children’s chalk
And sorry sap thoughts
I got bullets for brains

Does this make me insane?
Or just plain crazy?
Rambling sideways with
Thoughts of sidewalks alongside me
Just lying there helplessly, thoughtlessly thinking
Laughing, smiling
Dreaming
Of you
And of this city I’ve run to
Where the building rise higher
But are heavier still
And sinking
And sinking
And this city keeps drinking
From bomb threats in bathroom stalls
To gunshots orbiting city hall
This plea has only grown stronger now that I live within its spell
Yet my neighbors say hi to me now
And it seems honest and proud
And the music stays loud

But the sirens stay louder and prouder
Protecting and serving these littered streets
Is this the city plea?
To keep the dream, despite what you see?
To continue to believe as you bleed?
And is this place really
where I’m meant to be?
And is this place really
Where I long to be?
I don’t know
Maybe
