Paroles "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway (2008 Digital Remaster)" - Genesis

And the lamb lies down on Broadway

Early morning Manhattan
Ocean winds blow on the land
Movie Palace is now undone
The all-night watchmen have had their fun

Sleepin' cheaply on the midnight show
It's the same old ending time to go
Get out, it seems they cannot leave their dream
There's somethin' movin' in the sidewalk steam

And the lamb lies down on Broadway

Nighttimes flyers feel their pains
Drugstore takes down the chains
Metal motion comes in bursts
The gas station can quench that thirst

Suspension cracked on unmade road
The truckers eyes read 'Overload'
And out on the subway
Rael Imperial Aerosol Kid, exits into daylight, spray gun hid

And the lamb lies down on Broadway

The lamb seems right out of place
The Broadway street scene finds a focus in its face
Somehow its lyin' there
Brings a stillness to the air

Though man-made light at night is very bright
There's no whitewash victim
As the neons dim, to the coat of white
Rael Imperial Aerosol Kid, wipes his gun, he's forgotten what he did

And the lamb lies down on Broadway

Suzanne tired, her work all done
Thinks money honey be on neon
Cabman's velvet glove sounds the horn
And Sawdust King spits out his scorn

Wonder women you could draw your blind
Don't look at me, I'm not your kind
I'm Rael, something inside me has just begun
Lord knows, what I have done

And the lamb lies down on Broadway
(On Broadway)

(On Broadway, on Broadway)
They say the lights are always bright on Broadway
(On Broadway, on Broadway)
They say there's always magic in the air
(On Broadway, on Broadway)
They say the lights are always bright on Broadway
(On Broadway)
