lyrics

Harlem, can you hear me now?
Trying to get a hold of you somehow
The lines are down
The steam is whistling
The sound of all this lets me know what I’m missing

You are now my mother in a neon gown
My last lone savior of the hospital grounds
All I know is no one worries
Everyone knows the smokestack shines for free

But is it too late to talk about other plans?
I really think your friends would understand
But they’ve already rented the room on the farm
Acting the play that they wrote in the car

Their clothes are all wrong
Their teeth go numb
When they go into town they stick our like sore thumbs
While theyre gone we remain true blue
Now everyone knows the smokestack shines for you

Harlem, I love your name
I’ll get it tattooed on my heart
As the search for authenticity comes screeching to a halt
You sound like ooh ooh ooh

The smokestack shines for you
Everyone knows the smokestack shines for you
Everyone knows the smokestack shines for you
For you

Don't worry baby
