Genesis - Back In N. Y. C. lyrics

I see faces and traces of home back in New York City!
Aha

So you think I’m a tough kid? Is that what you heard?
Yeah, well I like to see some action and it gets into my blood
They call me the trail blazer - Rael - electric razor
I’m the pitcher in the chain gang, we don’t believe in pain
‘Cause we’re only as strong, yes, we’re only as strong
As the weakest link in the chain

Let me out of Pontiac when I was just seventeen
I had to get it out of me if you know what I mean, what I mean

Uuuuuuhhhh, you say I must be crazy ‘cause I don’t care who I hit, who I hit
But I know it’s me that’s hitting out and I’m, I’m not full of shit
I don’t care who I hurt, I don’t care who I do wrong
This is your mess I’m stuck in, I really don’t belong
When I take out my bottle, filled up high with gasoline
You can tell by the night fires where Rael has been, has been

As I cuddled the porcupine
You said I had none to blame but me
Held my heart deep in hair
Time to shave, shave it off, it off

No time for romantic escape,
When your fluffy heart is ready for rape
No!
No time for romantic escape,
When your fluffy heart is ready for rape
No!
No time for romantic escape,
When your fluffy heart is ready for rape
No!

Off we go
Off we go
Off we go
Off we go

You’re sitting in your comfort, you don’t believe I’m real,
You cannot buy protection from the way that I feel
Your progressive hypocrites hand out their trash
But it was mine in the first place so I’ll burn it to ash
And I’ve tasted all the strongest meats (Laid them down in coloured sheets)
Who needs illusion of love and affection?
When you’re out walking in the streets with your mainline connection?
Connection.

As I cuddled the porcupine
You said I had none to blame but me
Held my heart deep in hair
Time to shave, shave it off, it off

No time for romantic escape,
When your fluffy heart is ready for rape
No!
No time for romantic escape,
When your fluffy heart is ready for rape
No!
No time for romantic escape,
When your fluffy heart is ready for rape
No time!
