Cracks in the pavement and your feet pressed tightly together
Bent them on their knees, and you brushed off the rain and the weather

Fluorescent signs glowed blue on the rooftop shingles
Kicked back my feet while you drew in your breath on the window

And I woke up in my evening jacket holding on to someone I didn’t know
I lost touch under Hudson’s blankets
And I couldn’t help but thinking what I’d never seen before
So I don’t wanna play at war

Three dozen shops lined the walls and your dark sunglasses
Beach-side boutiques are on call, but their eyes are ashen
And your shoulder blades are almost invisible under thread and lace
Satin and velvet, you’ll still entertain

And I woke up in my evening jacket, holding on to someone I didn’t know
I lost touch under Hudson’s blankets
And I couldn’t help but thinking what I’d never seen before
So I don’t wanna play at war
No I don’t wanna play at war

But when the narcissists are necessary and the politics get crass
You’ll be taping records and you’ll be sucking laughing gas

I know it’s not black and white
But you were exactly right
I know it’s not black and white
But you were exactly right.
