Queen Of The Surface Streets Lyrics

Well, this is one place where your gods can’t dwell
It’s like walking into the mouth of hell
Sweating our dignities out on the subway
At the beginning of another long, long day.
As for my mortal remains, I couldn’t care,
‘Cause when the day is done, she’ll be waiting here.
That’s when I love the accommodations
In a urine smelling transit station.

Chorus:
I'll move these rocks for you my love
I will tear them up out of the earth
And I will bend my spine ‘til it’s quitting time
‘Cause I know what your time is worth.

And I’ll give my days to the Neanderthals
With the Classic Rock and the wrecking ball,
I’ll go swimming in the wet concrete
And I’ll cast my pearls at the unpaved street.
I don’t mind the mental atrophy
‘Cause when the lids come down, you're all I see.
You’re like a lovely hallucination,
You get me through my current occupation.

Chorus:
I'll move these rocks for you my love
I will tear them up out of the earth
And I will bend my spine ‘til it’s quitting time,
‘Cause I know what your time is worth.

See, I’m towering above mortal men.
I emerge from the darkness and there you stand.
You’re the Queen Of All The Surface Streets,
I’m the waiting boy that you’re here to meet.
I don’t need them all, yeah I couldn’t care,
‘Cause everythin’ I want is standing right here.
I would live on the street in a cardboard shack
Just to worship these feet and the curve of your back.
You’d be my only pre-occupation
On a permanent vacation.

Chorus:
Now I'll move these rocks for you my love
I will tear them up out of the earth
And I will bend my spine ‘til it’s quitting time
‘Cause I know what your love is worth.
What your love is worth, what your love is worth…
