The Lyrics

Back a few years ago I was involuntarily committed to one of the many institutions that were run by NYC. Fortunately for me (not so much for everyone else) they had to release many of us due to fiscal issues, relegating many to a life on the streets. This song I wrote to remind myself of those days of glee when peeing in a cup seemed oh so natural and my group of "friends" were very eclectic...
We'll find you down on Broadway
You scan the faces and start to plot
You yell at tourists if one should pass you by
And tell them they should be shot
You have one eye and your clothes are rags
Your teeth have turned to rot
In your own world Donald Trump is your partner
Trump is your partner, 'cause

You're Insane
And New York City's nothing without you
You're Insane
And New York City's nothing without you, out you, out you

Well it started several years ago
The day you went off your meds
Then you lived for awhile where the homeless go
But then they ran out of beds
Now you're thinking which one should I shove
Onto the tracks, you see
Peaceful are dreams when you sleep on the subway
Sleep on the subway, when

You're Insane
And New York City's nothing without you
You're Insane
And New York City's nothing without you, out you, out you

Well I hear you went down to Macon Georgia
And got your hands on a gun
Then you hitched your way back to New York City
And shot a man in the park for the fun
But you much prefer to waste your time
And polish down a fifth
You're wondering why you're a man without a friend
Man without a friend and

You're Insane
And New York City's nothing without you
You're Insane
And New York City's nothing without you
You're Insane
And New York City's nothing without you
You're Insane
And New York City's nothing without you
