Battery Park

lyrics

she was tired of being alone
on that rooftop in battery park
so she walked & walked & walked & walked & walked & walked & walked & walked
until church & state went dark

she had a meltdown on a Chelsea corner
and she held a sit-down at a sidewalk café
and she ate and ate and ate and ate and ate and ate and ate and ate
no one dared take her plate away

it’s been a few years since she needed to come back
and it’ll be a few years since she wore anything but black
now it’s too clear she’s gonna survive intact
but it’ll be a few years before she comes back again

“if you believe in fate, you’ll never have any fun”
that's what she told her viceroy down on 14th street
she laughs and laughs and laughs and laughs and laughs and laughs and laughs and laughs
she’s an adult in every single way

it’s been a few years since she needed to come back
and it’ll be a few years since she wore anything but black
now it’s too clear she’s gonna survive intact
but it’ll be a few years before she comes back again
