They sentenced me to twenty years of boredom
For trying to change the system from within
I’m coming now I’m coming to reward them
First we take Manhattan then we take Berlin

I’m guided by a signal in the heavens
I’m guided by this birthmark on my skin
I’m guided by the beauty of our weapons
First we take Manhattan then we take Berlin

I’d really like to live beside you baby
I love your body and your spirit and your clothes
But you see that line there moving through the station
I told you I told you I told you I was one of those

You loved me as a loser but now you’re worried that I just might win
You know the way to stop me but you don’t have the discipline
How many nights I prayed for this: to let my work begin
First we take Manhattan then we take Berlin

I don’t like your fashion business, mister
I don’t like these drugs that keep you thin
I don’t like what happened to my sister
First we take Manhattan then we take Berlin

I’d really like to live beside you baby
I love your body and your spirit and your clothes
But you see that line there moving through the station
I told you I told you I told you I was one of those

And I thank you for those items that you sent me
The monkey and the plywood violin
I practised every night and now I’m ready
First we take Manhattan then we take Berlin

Remember me, I used to live for music
Remember me, I brought your groceries in
It’s Father’s Day and everybody’s wounded
First we take Manhattan then we take Berlin
