Baby I know you want to rest
Get comfortable with your regrets
Don’t want to hear the riot act
Get read again

Upper west side Central Park view
But you don’t feel quiet inside
Suddenly conscious of just
How high up we are

Now it’s so loud it’s quiet
Ready or not
They’re shouting Quiet! Quiet!
Into the starry night

Oh, did you believe the hype, the lines
Cause we could foresee the fall,
The crash, the crowds, oh the crowds
Now it’s so loud it’s quiet
Ready or not
They’re shouting Quiet! Quiet!
Into the starry night
Can you tell me tell me
Where’s the safe house?
Tell me, tell me where to hide out
Tell me, tell me where’s the safe house
Tell me, tell me
