    Song Lyrics / J / Jeff Buckley / Back In N.y.c. Lyrics
    (m.rutherford/s.hackett/p.collins/p.gabriel/a.banks)
    Originally contained in genesis' the lamb lies down on broadway

    I see faces and traces of home
    Back in new york city
    So you think i'm a tough kid
    Is that what you heard?
    Well, i like to see some action,
    And it gets into my blood.
    Well, they let me out of pontiac
    When i was just seventeen
    I had to get it out of me
    If you know what i mean, what i mean.
    They say i must be crazy
    Cause i don't care who i hit, who i hit.
    Cause i know it's me that's hitting out
    And i know i'm not full of shit.
    Down by my bottle, filled up high with gasoline
    You can tell by the night fires
    Where a rail has been, has been.
    As i cuddled the porcupine
    He said i had none to blame but me.
    Gave my heart, deep in hell,
    Time to shave, shave it off, it off
    No time for romantic escape and your
    Fluffy heart is ready for rape
    Off we go. off we go. off we go
    You're sitting in your comfort
    Who don't believe i'm real
    You cannot buy protection
    For the way that i feel.
    Your progressive hypocrites
    Handing out their trash
    It was mine in the first place
    So i'll burn to ash.
    When i've taken all the strongest meats
    And laid them down in colored sheets
    Well, who needs illusions,
    Of love and affection when you're out
    Walking in the streets, your mainline connection.
    Connection.
    As i cuddled the porcupine
    He said i had none to blame but me.
    Held my heart, deep in hell,
    Time to shave, shave it off, it off
    No. no time for romantic escape
    And your fluffy heart is ready for rape
    No. no time for romantic escape
    And your fluffy heart is ready for rape
    No time.
    Back in new york city.
