and it rained all night and washed the filth away
down new york airconditioned drains,
the click click clack of the heavy black trains,
a million engines in neutral.
the tick tock tick of a ticking time bomb
50 ft of concrete underground,
one little leak becomes a lake says the
tiny voice in my ear piece.
so i give in to the rhythm, the click click clack.
im too wasted to fight back
tick tock goes the pendulum on the old grandfather clock
i... i can see but i can never reach you
and it rained all night and then all day,
the drops were the size of your hands and face,
the worms come out to see what's up.
we pull the car up from the river.
so how come it looks so beautiful?
how come the moon falls from the sky?
can see you, but i can never reach you
i can see you but i can never reach you
