NYC - Lyrics

Terrible, horrible humans
Take every moment for granted
And at the face of death
All ask for a second chance

To see beauty in the architecture
Of a vast set of networks in place
Of New York City

I never took you for granted
I stayed up all night to watch you
Then I wrote you this letter
I know I could've done better, but I'm too worn out
From living in the aftermath of my parents' experiments
Yeah, yeah

I won't sleep tonight here in the sky
The glow of a million lamps below
Is this the future?
Or a modern meditation on people stacked upwards
And human nature

I never took you for granted
I stayed up all night to watch you
Then I wrote you this letter
And I'll do it so much better when I'm not worn out
From living in the aftermath of my parents' experiments
Yeah, yeah
Of my parents' experiments
Yeah, yeah
Of my parents' experiments
Yeah, yeah
