The Middle Eight – Greenpoint lyrics

Segundo, standing by the front door
The mayor of the corner
He’s waving, he’s waving us hello
Hello, hello, hello, hello, hello
How are you today Segundo?
We’d love to talk but our time here is runnin’ low

Now we’re sitting by the chemically-ridden creek
Where the air our lungs have rejected
Support the words that are poisoning our connections

On the Greenpoint streets
That meant so much to you and me
The traces of our past life leads
Me deep into the
Most unwanted dreams that I have ever known

Alexandra, she’s waiting for an answer
She needs to know what my plans are
And in her recently disillusioned eyes
I can see that I’m killing all that she says that she stands for


Alexandra says no no
Alexandra says no no
