Block Party

lyrics

I love the sirens, and I love the haze
I would buy it as a Valspar paint - police cerulean.
There's a line of folks stretched down the block
quiet like they all forgot a brownstone could even catch fire.
But maybe I can get my name out
if I frame the fire with the line around the corner
and the news picks up my photo.
They'll want before and after so

I'll wait and watch the fire grow. I'll watch the fire crawl up the walls
and stay here 'til I'm too tired or the fire's out

I can get to know my neighbors
offer consolation like I hope there's no one in there.
I'll watch the ash and hydrant water
bind together and start to fall
I'll let it hit my tongue.
I can get to know my neighbors
joke around about the cannibal s'mores we'd make
if the cops would let us closer
I'd press my nose up to the flames and

Wait and watch the fire grow. I'll watch the fire crawl up the walls
and stay here 'til I'm too tired or the fire's out.

I'll try to stay up half the night if I can
that's just the fire and it's out of my hands
I don't need the streams from St. Paul or from Dallas
that's just the fire and I'm already calloused
I'm covered in ridges and red as the water
that's just the fire that makes the salt hotter
I'll stay out tomorrow I'll stay out all night
that's just the fire and I love the light
I watch the fire cause I love the light.
