The Lyrics

Here's a song about what's happening in New York City.
You're so scared you're traveling fast
So you see New York City 'cause you heard that's the answer
And you're so scared of looking it up
But why aren't you as scared of looking it up?

'Cause I'm slipping away by the district
So aren't you gonna look me too?
And before you make it to the time
How you gonna look me and you?
And you're so concerned about the building
You get up, go to work, and earn more money
So that when you go, you got something to show for it, yeah
Well, you'll have everything, but no one to hold on to
Because I'm slipping away by the scraper
So aren't you gonna save me too?
And before you make it to the city
How you gonna save me and you?
Yeah, you're so scared of getting the sky
(Aren't you gonna save me too?)
So you look New York City 'cause you heard that's the answer
(How you gonna save me and you?)
And you're so scared of looking it up
(Aren't you gonna save me too?)
But why aren't you as scared of dying looking?
(How you gonna save me and you?)

Oh, and if we haven't taken our last dying skyline
(Aren't you gonna save me too?)
Then I'm here and I'm waiting to save anything that's look
Oh, so don't give up just yet
(How you gonna save me and you?)
Oh, how can you just start counting down from the sky
Oh, without me? I'm waiting to start this all over again
(Aren't you gonna save me too?)
Oh-oh, you can't give up just yet

Yeah, you said you're scared of getting the sky
So you look New York City 'cause you heard that's the answer
Welcome and we love New York.
