Lispenard St

We locked ourselves on the rooftop bare

The sun retreating fast

The sky gave way to the stuff of equations

We kicked stones down to the cars

 

I’ll get by with a little help from my friends

But I know they will without mine

I took a leap, I came down crashing

The stairs held onto the night

 

I’d never heard the sound of the sea

We never found that cabin of his

Let off the brakes,

I’m going in search of lost time

 

You don’t know how it feels

Eggshells under the concrete

But hey! I walk these streets

 

Skip the cracks or trace their curves

A silver penny for your cares

I got my legs from the devil on loan

I’m gonna give them back well fed

 

Fallen empires big as whales

Eaten inside out

Staccato trumpet calls

Just commas on my route

 

I’d never had my own set of keys

The trapdoor taped under the sink

Let off the brakes,

I’m going in search of lost time

You don’t know how it feels

To know the creatures of the deep

I crawled beneath the trees

Pebbles lead straight back to me

You don’t know how it feels

Blacked out lines run halfway in

 

They’re under lock and key

I’m society’s true thief

 

You don’t know how it feels

You can’t know how it feels

Hey! I walk these streets
