    First We Take Manhattan

    (A cover of a song by Leonard Cohen.)

    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 your 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 your sister
    First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

    And I thank you for those items that you sent me
    The monkey and the plywood violin
    I practiced 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
