The northeast,
Well it's all I really know.
With dust and bricks and some cars,
In the snow.

It's like new york in the late summer time,
Can breathe again even through this lovely grime.

As I said,
The skyline's brighter tonight.
But this time I turned on five more lights.

It's like new york in the late summer time,
Can breathe again and your bones,
They feel alive.

I've got the northeast on my side.
