Story Behind the Song

Sad, nostalgic look at the gritty, raw, artistic New York of the 70's. 80's, and early 90's. And, the current gentrification, using "cupcakes on every corner" as a metaphor, for example. There is a chant, mentioning underground artists of that era.

Lyrics



The city that never sleeps is in a coma?
Cupcakes on every corner are taking over?
Covering the stench of our unique aroma, New York is Closing

Consumption is now what we're living for ?
Artists can no longer afford to perform ?
Can't even find a place to live no more , New York is closing?
?
New York is closing while the posers are posing?
We once were Dior now just a Big Box store now?
Drug induced memories engrained in the floor?
While mom and pops silently shut their doors, New York is closing

Should we sit back and lose the night?
nah, we need to take to the streets and fight?
who are you to decide what is wrong or what is right, New York is closing

New York is closing while the posers are posing?
We once were Dior now just a Big Box store now?
Drug induced memories engrained in the floor?
While mom and pops silently shut their doors, New York is closing

What are we fighting for Sylvia and Marsha, a glimpse of the old days?
what are we fighting for , what are we fighting for , Jackie and Candy, a glimpse of the old ways?
what are we fighting for, what are we fighting for?
From the fouratts to the Penny Arcades?
giving their souls throughout the decades, New York is closing

New York is closing while the posers are posing?
We once were Dior now just a Big Box store now?
Drug induced memories engrained in the floor?
While mom and pops silently shut their doors , New York is closing

New York is closing?
while the posers are posing

New York is closing

New York is closing....
