we were born one night wide awake
summer sweat stained
the mosquitoes they laughed oh they laughed
and we heard the singing from where we knew not
but we were tapping your feet
and we answered back in voices we knew not we had
but we're tapping our feet
we learned well something we once had forgotten
and we're tapping your feet

and in the month of may past
and the mosquitoes' laughs
turned to cackles with their eyes glowing red
well some of us got nervous
we screamed to these streets
on our streets there are shackles
there are shackles
there are shackles
i said goodbye and i thought to myself
i thought to myself
these streets are shackles
but the sun going down
on the river
keeps me tied to this world
oh yeah
