lyrics

they sentenced me to twenty years of boredom
for trying to change the system from within
i’m coming now, i’m coming to reward them
first we take manhattan, then we take berlin

i’m guided by a signal in the heavens
i’m guided by these birthmarks on our skin
i’m guided by the beauty of our weapons
first we take manhattan, then we take berlin

you loved me as a loser, now you’re worried i might win
you know the way to stop me, you ain’t got no discipline
how many nights i hoped for this to let my work begin
first we take manhattan, then we take berlin

i’d really love to live beside you, baby
i love your body, your spirit, your clothes
you see that line moving through the station
i told you, i told you, i told you
i was one of those!

i don’t like your fashion business, mister
and i don’t like these drugs to keep me thin
and i don’t like what’s happening to my sisters
first we take manhattan, then we take berlin

i thank you for the items that you’re sending me
remember me
the monkey and plywood violin
remember me
i practiced every night and now i’m ready
i used to live for music
i practiced every night and now i’m ready
remember me when i brought you groceries

first we take manhattan, then we take berlin
