ghosts of Manhattan
grow for the plantern
karma and towers
pulling our hours

it’s been many years
but i’d still know your face
the rest is a fading image
cropped and pixelated

eyes glued to the tv screen
watch the news ’til I turn green
doesn’t matter how you cut it
what’s done is dead
even if you can’t see it now

ghosts of Manhattan
grow for the plantern
karma and towers
pulling our hours
pushing up flowers

I try to call you
but the recordings saying
all the circuits are busy now
so I lay my face into my hands

something still is alive in me
and I wish you were there to see
all my acomplishments
and all the things I know
I wish you were here to watch me grow

ghosts of manhattan
grave for the plantern
bombs in the desert
that man was a cancer
