25th floor Lyrics

25th floor by Patti Smith

25th floor We explore the men's room.
We don't give a shit.
Ladies' lost electricity;
take vows inside of it.

Desire to dance;
Too startled to try.
Wrap my legs 'round you,
starting to fly.

Let's explore
up there, up there, up there,

man being the chosen alloy,
he must be reconnected—via shit, at all cost.
inherent with(in) us is the dream of the task
of the alchemist to create from the clay of man.
and to re-create from excretion of man
pure and then soft and then solid gold.

all must not be art. some art we must disintegrate.
positive (anarchy must exist.)

(i feel it swirling around me
i feel it feeling no pain
i'm waiting above for you baby
