"Death and Rats" as written by and Ryan Adams....
When I see the light why is it terrifying,
It's terrifying, it's coming up, I'm going down
Down into the streets that got me here
It's blinding, blinding light, it's not supposed to rain today

I see it now, it was just moving too fast
I see it now like a reflection in my past
Rivers of poison that surround us
On an island full of death and rats, subways and taxicabs

And you, and those blinding lights
Yeah you and those blinding lights

I just want to sleep why is it never over
The day before keeps running through my head I need the
Downs in the street, it's awe inspiring,
The strangers passing, nobody stops to say goodbye

I see it now, it was just moving too fast
I see it now like a reflection in my past
Rivers of poison that surround us
On an island full of death and rats, subways and taxicabs,
All night bars, and mistakes you know I made before
Days and nights, endless, overripe, buses and traffic lights
And tourists with subway maps and

You and those blinding lights
Yeah you and those blinding lights
Yeah you and those blinding lights
Yeah you and those blinding lights
Shining on the death and rats
