The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway (Disc 1) 45:17
01 The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway And the lamb lies down on Broadway Early morning Manhattan, Ocean winds blow on the land. Movie-Palace now undone, The all-night watchmenhave 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 theirdream. There's something moving in the sidewalk steam, And the lamb lies down on Broadway. Night-time's flyers feel their pains. Drugstore take down the chains. Metal motion comes in bursts, But the gas station can quench that thirst. Suspension cracked on unmaded road The trucker's eyes read "Overload" And out of the subway, Rael Imperial Aerosol Kid Exits into daylight, spraygun hid, And the lamb lies down on Broadway The lambs 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. Tough man-made light, at night is very bright, There's no whitewash victim, As the neons dim, to the coat of white. RaelImperial Aerosol Kid Wipes his gun - he's forgotten what he did, And thelamb lies down on Broadway Suzanne tired, her work all done, Thinksmoney - honey - be on - neon. Cabman's velvet glove sounds the horn Andthe sawdust king spits out his scorn. Wonder women you can draw yourblind! 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 downon Broadway. On Broadway - They say the lights are always bright on Broadway. They say there's always magic in the air. They say thelightsare always bright on Broadway. 04:47
02 Fly On A Windshield Ther's aomething solid forming in the air, And the waal of death is lowered in Time Square. No-one seems to care, They carry on as if nothing was there. The wind is blowing harder now, Blowing dust into my eyes. The dust settles on my skin, Making a crust I cannot move in And I'm hovering like fly, waiting for the windsheild on the freeway. 04:22
