Parquet Courts – One Man, No City lyrics

Where I'm from, no one lived there
I look back now, nothing's changed
Where I'm from now, still
No one lives there
Look back again and lock the door.
I maintain, I still remain
One man solitary
And no city

"Cogito ergo sum" people say
But think again 'cause I have no faith
I find building blocks filled with nothin'
Seen an inkblot page
And I said nothin'
I'll check it out, it's just a mirror
"Look back now," an empty page
Yet I maintain, I still remain
One man solitary
And no city

No town, no city
No identity, no city
No thoughts, no feelings, no city
No you, just me I think, no city
No words I speak, no city
No outside, no city
Nothin' at all, no city
No way home, no city
No relief, no city
No sympathy, no city
No understanding, no city
There's no one else and no city
