lyrics

I was standing on 14th and Broadway
Watching people walking by real fast
Everybody’s eyes looking like somebody
hit ‘em with an ax beat ‘em half to death

Some lady with a clipboard bent down to grab
A button in the gutter and I said what’s it say
She said it was only criss-crossed hammers
Wandered off muttering under her breath

I was talking later with the office millennial
Too young to remember what 2000 felt like
So I told she ought to look up Kristallnacht
And she searched it on a big pane of glass

A man brought pizza so we ate our feelings
While TV sent the story out state by state
Zoomed in on counties and counted them all
How to breach a firewall smash it en masse

Then I filmed behind conference room blinds
When one of the passersby turned on a heel
Wound up a wrist and pitched it just like this
And chunks just flew like confetti, like blame

I stood pat and waited for more to come flying
and as if by design right on cue was some litter
Drew my eye away from a hood whose brick end
bulls-eyed the big window just below our name
