lyrics

we can make it in the city
if we manage to keep our blood clean.
we think country air is fresher,
but sometimes all we need
is a cloud of smoke to breathe.

we’re having trouble having to pretend here
that our spirits are free and our minds are all clear.
and the day to day is running through us
like a sharpened blade
cutting tender grapes.

so bring me those city lights
reflected in the vitreous humor of your eyes.
we'll wrap ourselves inside
the warm soft pleasant glow of city life.

it's getting harder to remember
what we looked like when we were younger.
you had a button nose, I had suspenders —
together we held each other up
through the harsh winters.

we have our pictures, we have ours minds, yeah.
they have a real fine way of never lining up.
and our memories turn to fuzz,
like heavy, overdriven
guitar strums.

So bring me those city lights
reflected in the vitreous humor of your eyes.
