Lyrics First We Take Manhattan

They sentenced me to twenty years of boredom
For trying to change the system from within
I'm coming now
I'm coming to reward them
First we take Manhattan
And then we take Berlin
I'm guided by a signal in the heavens
I'm guided by the birthmark on my skin
I'm guided by the beauty of our weapons
First we take Manhattan
Then we take Berlin
I'd really like to live beside you baby
I love your body and your spirit and your clothes
But you see that line that's moving through the station
I told you
I told you
I told you
I was one of those
I don't like your fashion business, mister
I don't like those drugs that make you thin
I don't like what happened to my sister
First we take Manhattan
Then we take Berlin
All the way
Then we take Berlin
I don't like in no way
I don't like those drugs
And then we take Berlin
And then we take Berlin
And then we take Berlin yeah
