lyrics

I pressed my finger onto
the lower vein of the subway map
and declared I will live there, fancy that
Then the bottom blew out and just a cavity remains
with the false pride of a football game
I'm one step up with five more to go
To the top of the city where the virgin forest grows
I have seen the stars fall right from the sky...

If I'm wrong, please help me along
Sing me the song that leads me to you
And know that I will show you everything
That I could possibly dream of
I've walked this earth, I've gathered dirt
And now I'm soiled and worn
I will pour myself in, put all my quarters in
and spin until I'm clean

Underneath the skin we move underground
I need oxygen so I float uptown
to the center, the lungs, the heart
The beating of the drums in central park
I take this pulse as my own
I am connected to my broken home

Chorus

The sun goes down and I go to
The edge of the city to greet the moon
The cross the bridge, stop in the middle, drop five pennies a wish an a little
Prayer for everyone
Sleeping in their beds
This world is so messed up
We need all the love we can get
