about

******First song written when I moved to New York City. I don't even think we had all the boxes unpacked. The bed was together and the guitar was available. It's a song about confidence, moving to Brooklyn, freedom of choice, and romance********

lyrics

VERSE 1
Quietly in an under lit room
Shake his hand now
Hug your daughters face
You know we'll be seeing you soon
Not in the after-life or sinking ship waters

VERSE 2
You said "How could you be so obtuse?"
You're gonna lock yourself inside a rabbit hole
Then sail to the moon
And free yourself like William Wallace
Free yourself like Jackson Pollock did.

CHORUS
There's a shocker the city calls for you
There's a rocket filled with rocket fuel
There a shocker the city calls for you
There a rocket filled with shit to do

VERSE 3
Once you tried me on like a glove
Unlike Mr. Simpson you fit my skin so well
Highest degrees of love
As my face it melts and my brain it melts into
Everything that's ours to have
From the dog-shit streets to lady liberty's body
Don't think, just muscle the grab
And free yourself like Jimmy Hendrix and free yourself like pen and paper
As the future plays as the past's eraser
Don't think, just muscle the grab and free yourself your own EMANCIPATOR

CHORUS
There's a shocker the city calls for you
There's a rocket filled with rocket fuel
There a shocker the city calls for you
There a rocket filled with shit to do
