lyrics

It seems to me that Queens is where you go when you’re dead.
The J line: an endless parade of cherry blossoms and graves.
A slow ride that leaves you burned out and thick as a tenement brick.
And I never did appreciate Latino girls the way that I do right now.
It seems to me that Queens is where you go when you’re dead.
The wash lines over billboards for stores that don’t exist anymore.
It’s cloudy, like the factory windows with nothing inside.
And I never did appreciate suburban life the way that I do right now—but I ain’t gonna give up.
This is only the first stop.
It seems to me that Queens is where you go
when you’re dead.
The J line: an endless parade of cherry blossoms and graves.
A slow ride that leaves you burned out and thick as a tenement brick.
And I never did appreciate a friendly face the way that I do right now.
But I ain’t gonna give up.
This is only the first stop.
I ain’t gonna give up—this is the sound of me revving up.
It seems to me that Queens is where you go when you’re dead.
