Empire State (Guster)

Been the crawl of a mountain Been a link in a chain Been scolded for stealing Been told to behave Been reading the forecast Something's coming this way But it's taking forever I'm too tired to maintain that I'm slow Been a scratch on the surface Been a clog in the drain Been melodramatic Been sleeping for days Been one in a million Been a million to one This is taking forever It always seems to return that I'm slow All hands up, salute the Empire State Faith be true, you know the way Ten feet tall in this: an empty space Fallen walls all around Destroyed again Destroyed again Been digging to China Been a fish in the sea Been talking to Jesus He's not talking to me Been reading the forecast Something's coming this way But it's taking forever I'm too tired to maintain that I'm slow All hands up, salute the Empire State Faith is true, she knows the way Ten miles tall in this: an empty space Fallen walls all around We'll build again Rebuild again Been the crawl of a mountain Been a link in a chain Been scolded for stealing Been carted away
