Lyrics:

something?
Hey man, nothing comes from nothing
Hey man, something came from somewhere

Hey man, it's a tenement song
Just there on the tip of your tongue
Right-o! 
Hear dem say...ah ah ah! 
Dreadlocks can't live in a...tenement 

Dreadlocks can't live in a tenement yard 
Dreadlocks can't live in
a part of my tenement symphony

The Cohen's pianola
The Kellys and their victrola
All warm the heart of my tenement symphony

The Campbells come
Right-o! 
Hear dem say...ah ah ah! 
Dreadlocks can't live in a...tenement 

Dreadlocks can't live in a tenement yard 
Dreadlocks can't live in
Right-o! 
Hear dem say...ah ah ah! 
Dreadlocks can't live in a...tenement 

Dreadlocks can't live in a tenement yard 
Dreadlocks can't live in
tenement coming up dead

So my parachute is hanging around
I guess I bust it on the ground
Nothing helps me fall
Nothing helps me float
Today I want
Oh, to speak on one's feet
To beat on one's brain
The popular mechanics are at it again
A tenement filled with side-show freaks
Assembled
the nest 
That was life in a tenement square

I remember the song where the rats sang along 
And danced for their daily bread 
While the damp washed
the nest 
That was life in a tenement square

I remember the song where the rats sang along 
And danced for their daily bread 
While the damp washed
Did they build this tenement
With stone from Fife?
Does it have a memory
Of an earlier life?

Before it was transported
To be cut with pride
A tenement, a dirty street
Walked and worn by shoeless feet
Inside it's long and so complete
Watched by a shivering sun
Old eyes in a small
heart

You could be just vain and live alone
On Separation Street
But if you did you know your life
Would be incomplete
The tenements of disrepute
at the top
But the rook's not to blame
For those who didn't have an endgame

The tenements of new haven, 2010,
Spare me that, my friend
Being Joan
at the top
But the rook's not to blame
For those who didn't have an endgame

The tenements of new haven, 2010,
Spare me that, my friend
Being Joan
thoughts
And simply be with you

I'm not afraid
Three flights up to his tenement
"I'm alone" he said
Finally my heart will lead my mind
Stop
a where they're coming from 
African children 
Right here in a mean world guarded
African children 

All of the nation are
Living in these tenements
know a where ya comin' from 
African children 
Right here in a mean, wild world 
African children 

All of the nations are living in these tenements
Slow death to the nightingale
His voice would always fail
In tenement towers
And on rails
And all of these praising words
They all seem so
the streets, the garbage lies
Protected by a million flies
The roaches so big you know that they got bones
They moved in and made a tenement home

I said
the strangest of all
These are the nights 
These are the darkest to fall
But who knows?
Echoes in tenement halls
Who knows? 
Though the years spare them all
been waiting around 
Systems failing now 
On your honor so I hear 
It's never been your fault you swear 
Is the union based on fear? 
Tenement
the streets, the garbage lies
Protected by a million flies
The roaches so big you know that they got bones
They moved in and made a tenement home

I said
Now greetings to the world
Gangsta no live in a tenement yard
Rude boy no live in a tenement yard
Too much watchy, watchy, watchy
Too much su,
heart strung up on clothing line through tenement windows in mid-July.
I've got my heart strung up on clothing line through tenement windows.

I'm
