The Lamb Lies Down On The Broadway Lyrics

And the lamb lies down on Broadway

Early morning Manhattan
Ocean wings blowing on the land
Movie-Palaces now undone
The all-night watchmen have had their fun
Sleeping cheaply on the midnight show
It's the same old ending - it's time to go
Get out -
It seems they cannot leave their dream
There's something moving in the sidewalk steam
And the lamb lies down on Broadway

Night-time's flyers feel their pains
Drugstore take down the chains
Metal motion comes in bursts
But the gas station can quench that thirst
Suspension cracked on an unmade road
The trucker's eyes read "Overload"
And out of the subway
Rael Imperial Aerosol Kid
Exits into daylight, it's spraygun hid
And the lamb lies down on Broadway

The lamb seems right out of place
Yet the Broadway street scene finds a focus in its face
Somehow it's lying there
Brings a stillness to the air
Though man-made light, at night is very bright
There's no whitewash victim
As the neons dim, to the coat of white

Rael Imperial Aerosol Kid
Wipes his gun - he's forgotten what he did
And the lamb lies down on Broadway

Suzanne tired, her work all done
Thinks money - honey - be on - neon
Cabman's velvet glove sounds the horn
And the sawdust king spits out his scorn
Wonder women you can draw your blind
Don't look at me, I'm not your kind
I'm Rael
Something inside me has just begun
Lord knows what I have done
And the lamb lies down on Broadway
On Broadway -

They say the lights are always bright on Broadway
They say there's always magic in the air
They say the lights are always bright on Broadway
