lyrics

Central Station

He was harmless, till he wasn’t,
No, he never hurt a fly, till he did.
Keep your eye on the prize, keep your eye on the prize,
He kept his eye on the prize and tripped.

No sir, I’ve got no ID,
Just this face that god he gave to me.
Don’t ask me, where I’ve been,
And I won’t tell you what I’ve seen.

Oh boy, what would you know?

Underneath the overpass,
Ferrying copper, tin and glass,
Whispering, lord this too shall pass,
Lord this shall pass.

By the billboard for the latest HBO Show,
On the side of the million-dollar shoe box condo,
Don’t get me started on this latest phase,
Of naming neighbourhoods for what they replace.

Oh boy, what would you know?

The business men, the knife throwers,
And the subway acrobats,
All experts in the art,
Of avoiding eye contact.

Inwood to the World Trade,
Jamaica to the Rockaways,
Sleeping at Uncle ACES
Between jobs, between places,


Oh boy, what would you know?

He was harmless, till he wasn’t,
No, he never hurt a fly, till he did.
Keep your eye on the prize, keep your eye on the prize,
He kept his eye on the prize and tripped.
