​Red Brick Tenement In Chelsea

This song is by Slight Return.

Meandering down streets of no travail
For which workmen once offered up hands
To the throes of the city
Where leisure is not in demand

Monday sends her libertine
In place of repose
Friday rakes her idle thought
With a laden rest

Be a lackey and take
Great pains in making that mark
Trade red brick tenement on work days
For tall building that do you no good
When air traffic control is languid
And the feats of architecture come crumbing

Into the fray
This is the last chance
I will have to say
What I have to say
