Pale New York

The night’s gone all white
A new skin to tread all over
Angels far out of sight
Spread their wings, and closer
Closer they’re crawling
they’re visible underfoot

I should go now
before I fall down
clawing at the air
without a single sound

I breathe out the smoke
I lost my hands in my pockets
I’m unchanged and broke
The sun used to be a prophet
now it’s too busy falling
it’s audible under my boots

I should go now
before I fall down
clawing at the air
without a single sound
I should know how
before I fall down, I’ll
claw at thin air
without a single sound

Where’s the cure now?
I thought I knew
Forty-second and somewhere
Oh who cares
I look and it’s pure now
The ground is all askew
Forty-second and somewhere
Oh who cares

Bury me in Lexington Avenue…

A sense that’s on the nose
the tip of my tongue is stiff
and how did I hide all those
holes in my clothes, the gifts
drift like we’re all in
visible, misunderstood

Where is the cure now?
I thought I knew
Forty-second and somewhere
oh who cares
I look and its pure now
the ground is askew
forty-second and somewhere
oh who cares

I hear the bells
ringing all the way to hell
just stop for a second
I’m unwell, I’m unwell
I can never tell
I just don’t want to dwell
Just wait for a moment
I’m unwell, I’m unwell

Where is the cure now?
I thought I knew
Forty-second and somewhere
oh who cares
I look and its pure now
the ground is askew
forty-second and somewhere
oh who cares
bury me in Lexington Avenue
on the corner, somewhere out there
bury me in Lexington Avenue
on the corner of forty-second and Lex
oh who cares
oh who cares
oh who cares
oh who cares
