Longpigs – New York lyrics

In New York, we buried our heads in the sand,
Like a junkie needs his fix, like a hooker needs her tricks,
In New York, we danced like two birds on a stick,
Like confusion breeds despair, like all politicians care.

I must have been a fool to listen to you,
My friend,
I still love you, still pretend, cool,
My friend,
I still love you, still pretend.

In New York, we swam like a dog in the sun,
Like a critic needs a shield, like a chicken needs a field,
In New York, we sat like a bus stop in hell,
Like a spotlight has to fade,like a wanker wearing shades.

I must have been a fool to listen to you,
My friend,
I still love you, still pretend, cool,
My friend,
I still love you, still pretend.

In New York, we gave every penny to lust,
Like a bulldog needs a smile, like a novel takes a while,
Like a prophet needs to think, like a case of kitchen sink (?)
Like confession breeds/ needs remorse, like suspicion runs it's course,
Like a model needs a look, like a mother needs to cook,
Like a sweetheart needs a date, like appearing slightly late,
Like a beating begs revenge, like a hippy needs stone henge,
Like a gangster needs a gang, like a killer needs to hang.

I must have been a fool to listen to you,
My friend,
I still love you, still pretend, cool,
My friend,
I still love you, still pretend.

Like a telephone needs calls, like a lesbian needs balls,
Like I'm always second best, like I've got it off my chest,
Like a mystic needs to fate, like a glutton needs to sate,
Like a lawyer needs a law, like a millionaire needs more,
Like escapists need to go, like a winner has to gloat,
Like all time will surely heal, like a santa claus is real,
Like a tenant needs the rent, like all fury needs a vent,
Like a ?????, like affairs all need a ???
Like a popgroup needs a sound, like a penny makes a pound,
Like I'm shooting from the hip, like all suitcase needs equip (?)
Like a jockey needs a whip, like a belly needs to slip,
Like a cheetah ? the sea, like a vicar needs more tea,
Like a massochist needs Spain, and like a cavalan needs pain
