Brooklyn Breaking

Brooklyn Breaking
Oh, Bloody Mary kissed the reaper
And now everything’s about to go down
Somebody, can you call my mom so she can pick me up
From this crazy, blasted wayward town
I’m asleep on your bedroom floor
And now your brother won’t talk to you anymore

I don’t think you’re the right fit for me right now
Will someone please tell me why I’m screaming so loud
Fall in love in a ravine down in Detroit
Telling my mom about this other boy

Take me back, take me back to Brooklyn
Save the crap for later, put it in a booklet
Promise me that this town is gonna disappear
I need to get away from the boy that gave me tears
Oh, Brooklyn, tell me why
Why did the pictures on the wall start to defy
Falling fast, catch me now
Before I die
Take me back to Brooklyn, where I lie

Oh, this is me with a shouting wink
Your eyes look just like the pits of hell
Call my sister so she can drive me home
Before I decide to kiss and tell
Now the sky is black and blue
I’m hanging up, I can’t talk to you

I don’t think you’re the right fit for me now
Will someone please tell me why they’re screaming so loud
Fall in love in a ravine down in Detroit
Telling my mom that I met this boy

Take her, take me, take us back to Brooklyn
Save her soul for later, put it in a booklet
Let’s run until this town just disappears
Lock me up, so I’ll rot for a thousand years
Oh, Oh, my city, Brooklyn, tell me why
Why did the pictures on the wall start to defy
Falling fast, catch me now before I die
Take me back to Brooklyn where I lie
Cry me a river,
Oh, oh, cry me a river you took it away
Now I’ve got nothing for you to say
Steal the words right out of my mouth
Before they leave my lips, you don’t know what I’m talking about.

Take me back to Brooklyn.
