Ready to go
The sky up
It's raining
Reading a book
On the downtown train
Easy enough
When the words are all plain

Off in the distance
?? playing soprano
While a woman in white shoes
Off with the mouth
About heaven and hell
No one gives her the time

Crossing the bridge
On the Harlem line
People in shantees
Feel the train go by
The billboards overhead
Advertising high-rises
Build a better tomorrow today

The man next to me
And the woman one over
Are looking at a book
And those who aren't
Are staring at them
Cause the windows are dirty
And they're standing in the doorway
With their feet on facing chairs
And sleeping heads on shoulders

A girl is waiting
At the Fordham Station
Turns a page
As the sun parts the sky
The ground begins to dry

On the playground
I remember
The taste of metal
And bars in my hands
