Testo and the lamb lies down on broadway - genesis

Early morning Manhattan

Ocean winds blow on the land.

The Movie-Palace is now undone

The all-night watchmen have had their fun.

Sleeping 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 something moving in the sidewalk steam

And the lamb lies down on Broadway.

Nightime's flyers feel their pains.

Drugstore takes down the chains.

Metal motion comes in bursts

But the gas station can quench that thirst.

Suspension cracked on unmade road

The trucker's eyes read 'Overload'

And out on the subway

Rael Imperial Aerosol Kid

Exits into daylight
spraygun hid

And the lamb lies down on Broadway.

The lamb seems right out of place

Yet the Broadway street sceng finds a focus in its face.

Somehow it's lying 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 the sawdust king spits out his scorn.

Wonder women 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-

They say the lights are always bright on Broadway.

They say there's always magic in the air
