Rialto Boulevard

The Benedictines Don't know what to do It's a long hard road down to the river There are children outside the spielhalle Who will make you feel unsafe And no one wants to say What we are all thinking I've earned the right to calm the bluff I got Brooklyn branded foot creams that you didn't know there was I've followed all the rules I hear them shouting out And I don't want to lose What's that dead man doing? The men's magazines Don't know what to say It's a long hard road down to the river You got children outside the schpielhalle Who will take you life away And no one is willing to make The hard decision I don't do well being idle I got the collected works of Lee Iacoca on 180g vinyl The rules are clear in the game we play That's why it hurts to hear them say What's that dead man doing?

He knows the way through Neuland park But only when it's getting dark He runs against the the empty souls The night is blank, the bridge is closed And from the Rheinblick one can tell That this day isn't ending well We can try to get the fever down If we only want to feel alright There's fighting in the Chempark now So we're burning out the streetlights And we knows what should be said out loud But noone want to see the light So their fighting in the Chempark now There's no where else to be tonight She's past the yankee candle shoppe It's pouring rain, not gonna stop The upstairs window casting shadows red On pedestrian street torn by tank tread The burning plastic draws a crowd So Marktplatz bonfires don't go out

It's raining on my kaesebroetchen And also in my heart A barren stretch of concrete Can smash the world apart Now under opaque plexiglass In it's soft shadows You'd likely say it's not that bad As infrastructure goes And I'm Standing here On Rialto Boulevard And your train Pulls in I can see it past the Mr Chicken Through the off-brand outer wear The sleeveless and the pink Waft the bus fumes of tomorrow, A bitter morning drink The overhead digital time display Has stopped, or maybe slowed You wouldn't go to Langenfeld if You knew what I know
