Lyrics

Welcome Man

Kids in red flares with boxes of contraband
Taillights blurring like short-sighted eyes
You are a part of the triumph of the city
You say welcome and goodbye
I loved you in ‘96 I didn’t even know you
Half-awake travellers shouldn’t take sides
From Christopher Street to a hard English summer
You say welcome, welcome and goodbye

The story of Cadillac, old Continental
Stepping outside for a word to the wise
Letters from home deeply boring deeply moving
They say welcome and goodbye

While I am here I’m preparing to leave again
Forget the body and get on with the mind
Graffiti’d hieroglyphics speak on the subway
They say welcome and goodbye

Stared in to the camera seeing the future
Hooper in glory and the Village combined
You emptied out Lafayette and baby you came to me
I said welcome, welcome and goodbye

While I am here I’m preparing to leave again
Forget the body and get on with the mind
Graffiti’d hieroglyphics speak on the subway
They say welcome and goodbye

Come on kids
Come on kids, come on
