Ever since my cell phone, I never have a pen.
And I don't speak in English, I speak in predictive text.
Ever since we got our cable, I never have anything to do.

Ever since our drop off service, I never read a book.
There's always something else around, plus I owe the library nineteen bucks.

Tomorrow I'm gonna ride my bike from the Bronx to Dyker Heights.
Leave East Tremont when it's bright.
Won't get home 'til late at night.
Yeah, that's when I'll fix my bike.
That's when I'll fix my bike.

Everything is magic 'til you can't afford the cost.
'Til you ain't got eight-hundred bucks to pay the rent.
Until you don't have twenty bucks.
Everything is magic 'til you can't afford the cost.
'Til you ain't got eight-hundred bucks to pay the rent.
Until you don't have twenty bucks.

All the perks are priceless 'til you can't afford the costs,
'til you ain't got eight-hundred bucks to pay the rent
until you ain't got twenty bucks to have a couple beers
or ten dollars for every meal
or $2.50* to ride each way
while they're cutting service on the subway.

But the nineteenth floor went up today
Penthouse and a fire escape
I sat in grass two blocks away
I watched the boats and counted planes.
When so much shit crowds up your day
It's hard to enjoy anything.
Another floor went up today
and tomorrow they'll be taking my park away.

I wanna kiss you on that crane x1000

I wanna party like I'm death row pardoned
while the freight elevators watch
'cause we'll both live to fight another day.
