Testo the lamb lies down on broadway - genesis

The lamb lies down on Broadway



And the lamb lies down on Broadway.



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
