you go down to the water again when everything wants to be relieved of weight there's too much on this land let's go and see the end i wanna see the end you ride down to the water again everything's running on reverse intention the buses and the cars you know the way things are the bottleneck blues when thing's take up too much space in the city everything has its place that's something that they say you can't find a space they drove around for hours and they could not find a space we drove around for hours and we could not find a space you go down to the water again i know when i'm caught and i have to admit: i'm one who makes lists sometimes you forget there are so many things let's go down to the water again i wanna swim with a rusty engine i wanna leave some things just as they had been i wanna leave some things

now that I know just where you've been at it's a little late to mind too much for that it was up to you you can always do right by people next to you all you do is not lie it's up to you now that I know it's fine to walk with the moon I think I'll go out where it's just me and her no one's gotta know no one's gonna follow you when we walk alone walk under my shadow and I'll make it a dream now that I know just where you've been at it's a little late to mind too much for that it was up to you no one's gonna fool around when the night is through when you see the grey light it's up to you it's up to you

direct light 02:06
who knows what it's supposed to feel like? I know it isn't even about that at noon, that is when the right light comes in, reflected from the courtyard I don't need direct light who knows what it even feels like? one time was enough to feel right who knows what it's supposed to feel like? if you did, would it even feel right? at noon, that is when the bright light comes in, when the angle's just right i don't need the thru-line no one learns a lesson this time who knows what it's supposed to feel like? who knows when it is the best time to hear the music of city life? when you're going walking at night sometimes, maybe something tricks your eyes you can hear the bells chime who knows what it's supposed to feel like? one time was enought to feel right

born wrong 03:13
everyone born wrong been wrong before you done wrong everyone born wrong into endless war echoes of battle from far distant shores gun shots at night from around the corner the streets are aflood with the means to destroy the feed is aflood with a million stories we see the same things we have before they're throwing the garbage out from the front doors people walk in and out of the stores feeling so safe and so self-secure happy to live in post-bloomberg new york everyone born wrong everyone doing it wrong everyone born wrong into endless war

TM joint working overdrive grinding at your clenched jaw tight drink some water from the faucet in the night sleeping just to dream of better times now they're calling the doc to break the strike someone isn't gonna make it home tonight is it neither here nor there if they expire if it's neither here nor there where they reside? TM joint working overdrive dreams of gnawing and slurping all night do you think they wish to be undignified? do you think they want to feel so sick and tired? in west texas in the jail there's a room where somebody's being force-fed through a tube the courts acknowledge that they have done their time but crossing's still a deportable crime TM joint working overdrive scammers in the circuit selling lies the facts are on the floor before our eyes the facts are on the floor

don't hate the player, hate the game that's what they say, that's what they say i just wanna serve you and get paid that's what they say, that's what they say why do we work just to degrade all the relations in the neighborhood? i don't wanna put kids on the fence i don't wanna lurk inside my van anymore i don't wanna handcuff teen wrists without telling them what they did anymore i know it fucks up your mind to be stood in a line and not know why why do i drive to your street? i don't even live in your neighborhood i don't wanna rush to the scene with a heart full of fear and iron on me i don't wanna play it out the same following orders to the grave NO MORE FAKE-ASS YOUTUBE BASKETBALL GAMES we wanna feel some analog change i don't wanna look past you on the street i wanna feel like a human being
