lyrics

There’s something about Manhattan that puts you in a magic state
We got pickles with our pastrami and rye bread

There’s something about nostalgia that puts you in a trance like state
What hits you when young will stay deep in your head

If you can look into a book or an internet meme…
Everything is quite deep man, but I don’t mean that to sound silly
As you will hear if you go on, I devoted months to Black Metal
I work in an office

There’s something about song writing that makes you absorb anything
Kate Beaton and Nelson, at the time of writing

There’s something about an actual Chicago pizza or cheese steak
The history and touch are a euphoric state

If you can just block out the din and really feel their smooth skin
There is so much, with velum fluff, pores and warmth and goose bumps
I’m standing by the *actual* lion statue, seen in Ghostbusters!
I’m eating an Italian beef, by the *actual* Chicago tribune!
