I set off your Sensormatic
A couple of big guys gave me static
They grabbed my head and threw me to the floor
Because my heart's a shiny object
I raise alarms, get held suspect
My heart is made of tin
I stole it on a whim
My distant self, I saw myself
I shook all night 'til it was over
From Kensington to East Harlem
I touched the water, watched it shiver
Hold him down and make him swim
The deeper and the deeper in
He's building monuments from towers
And if I slept a million hours
I couldn't tell the city from the rush
If I was out in California
I'd be chasing some Latina
And drinking mucho cheapo vino
A million miles from home
That never felt like home
My house fell down, they trashed my house
There are no strings that hold me tethered
I'd ride my bike the whole night long
If only I knew how to ride one
Hold him down and make him swim
The deeper and the deeper in
I set off your Sensormatic
A couple of big guys gave me static
My heart is made of tin
I stole it on a whim, yup
