lyrics

GOODBYE SILK CITY

Once majestic, now in shambles
No more theatres standing downtown
Gone are the mills, what a pity
The first planned industrial city
Was there pride in labor?
Was there flood and fire?
Dreams we weave don't last forever

Do you recall
a time before the malls went up?
Down by the falls
It's like it wasn't ever here at all

The Morning Call won't show up on newsstands
Alexander Hamilton's hotel is housing for homeless
The ghosts in trolleys off to Neverland
Call for William

If you did not see the damage done, well you're just too young
and gone is poor old SIlk City
Calling William Paterson
Paterson
And gone the land of Lenape
