  • New York tendaberry
    Blue berry
    A rush on rum
    Of brush and drum
    And the past is a blue note
    Inside me
    I ran away in the morning

    New York tendaberry
    Blue berry
    Rugs and drapes and drugs
    And capes
    Sweet kids in hunger slums
    Firecrackers break
    And they cross
    And they dust
    And they skate
    And the night comes

    I ran away in the morning

    Now I'm back
    Sidewalk and pigeon
    You look like a city
    But you feel like a religion
    To me

    New York tendabery
    True berry
    I lost my eyes
    I east wind skies
    Here where I've cried
    Where I've tried
    Where God and the tendaberry rise
    Where quakers and revolutionaries
    Join for life
    For precious years
    Joined for life
    Through silver tears
