The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway - Genesis

And the lamb lies down on Broadway

 

Early morning Manhattan

 

Ocean winds blow on the land

The Movie-Palace is now undone

 

The all-night watchmen have had their fun

Sleeping cheaply on the midnight show

It's the same old ending-time to go

Get out

 

It seems they cannot leave their dream

 

There's something moving in the sidewalk steam

And the lamb lies down on Broadway

 

Nightime's flyers feel their pains

 

Drugstore takes down the chains

Metal motion comes in bursts

But the gas station can quench that thirst

Suspension cracked on unmade road

 

The trucker's eyes read 'Overload'

 

And out on the subway

 

Rael Imperial Aerosol Kid

 

Exits into daylight spraygun hid

And the lamb lies down on Broadway

The lamb seems right out of place

 

Yet the Broadway street scene finds a focus in its face

 

Somehow it's lying there

Brings a stillness to the air

 

Though man-made light at night is very bright

 

There's no whitewash victim

 

As the neons dim to the coat of white

 

Rael Imperial Aerosol Kid

Wipes his gun he's forgotten what he did

And the lamb lies down on Broadway

 

Suzanne tired her work all done

Thinks money honey be on neon

Cabman's velvet glove sounds the horn

And the sawdust king spits out his scorn

 

Wonder women you can drew your blind

Don't look at me I'm not your kind

I'm Rael

 

Something inside me has just begun

 

Lord knows what I have done

And the lamb lies down on Broadway

 

On Broadway

 

They say the lights are always bright on Broadway

 

They say there's always magic in the air

 

They say there's always bright on Broadway
