GENESIS


Back In N. Y. C. Lyrics

I see faces and traces of home
Back in New York City, you're home

So you think I'm a tough kid, is that what you heard?
Well, I like to see some action and it gets into my blood
They call me the trail blazer-Rael-electric razor
I'm the pitcher in the chain gang, we don't believe in pain

'Cos we're only as strong
'Cos we're only as strong
As the weakest link in the chain

Let me out of Pontiac when I was just seventeen
I had to get it out of me
If you know what I mean, what I mean

You say, I must be crazy, 'cos I don't care who I hit, who I hit
But I know it's me that's hitting out, and I'm, I'm not full of shit
I don't care who I hurt, I don't care who I do wrong
This is your mess, I'm stuck in, I really don't belong

When I take out my bottle filled up high with gasoline
You can tell by the night fires
Where Rael has been, has been

As I cuddled the porcupine
He said, I had none to blame, but me
Held my heart, deep in hair
Time to shave, shave it off, it off

No time for romantic escape
When your fluffy heart is ready for rape, no
No time for romantic escape
When your fluffy heart is ready for rape, no
No time for romantic escape
When your fluffy heart is ready for rape, no
Off we go, off we go, off we go, off we go

You're sitting in your comfort, you don't believe I'm real
You cannot buy protection from the way that I feel
Your progressive hypocrites hand out their trash
But it was mine in the first place, so I'll burn it to ash

And I've tasted all the strongest meats
And laid them down on colored sheets
Laid them down on colored sheets

Who needs illusion of love and affection
When you're out walking in the streets
With your mainline connection, connection

As I cuddle the porcupine
He said, I had none to blame, but me
Held my heart, deep in hair
Time to shave, shave it off, it off

No time for romantic escape
When your fluffy heart is ready for rape, no
No time for romantic escape
When your fluffy heart is ready for rape, no
No time for romantic escape
When your fluffy heart is ready for rape
No time
