Gang of Youths The Overpass Lyrics

sponsored links
We're stranded at the lights
With extraordinary distance
Covered in a blanket
Of northern snow
I am your protection
The last line of defence
I'll try to keep my promises
To all of our friends

I don't have a coat
And we don't have a car
But honey if you're patient

Oh the overpass in Harlem shines like
Neon violence in my blood
So red and white, and out of our control

You swore it on your life
You wouldn't get so tired
But I can hear you lying
Over the phone
This is such a failure
Wholly on my part
To rectify our balance with
The credit on the cards
I don't have the nerve
But if you have the heart
Honey if you're patient

Oh the overpass in Harlem shines like
Neon violence in my blood
So red and white, and out of our control
Do they drown their young in Hudson waters?
Bring their children with disorders
Into the night and the dark northern cold

You see it in their faces
Strong against the white
Fighting with the angels
For glory and pride
And we are not peculiar
But am I not at fault?
This is the arrangement
And what I've been sold
I don't have a coat
And we don't have a car
But honey if you're patient
The city isn't far

Oh the overpass in Harlem shines
Like neon violence in my blood
So red and white, and out of our control
Do they drown their young in Hudson waters?
Bring their children with disorders
Into the night and the dark northern cold

And it shakes and rattles through the ward
A lightning bolt across the door
Flourescent like the visions in my sleep
So much braver than our present life
A golden factory of light
And you'll live long enough to catch its beams
