about

This is a song about how Brooklyn has changed and blah blah blah. You weren’t the first one here either.

lyrics

Feeling guilty about what I want to do with my time,
it isn’t mine anymore.
I wanna play in a band but drink less at shows, and it shows,
I barely make it to close.
I don't recognize it no more. This isn't what I came here for.

On the train or on the street, it’s all I see.
At the bars we used to meet, so strange to me.
On the train or on the street, it’s all I see.
At the bars we used to meet, douchebaggery.

I miss the days of naivete,
full of punk rock and bicycles, drinking in parks.
But Brooklyn’s become an echochamber of wealth,
all landlords and hedge funds and circling sharks.
Now it’s all crypto cash schemes, and everyone chasing that dream.

On the train or on the street, it’s all I see.
At the bars we used to meet, so strange to me.
On the train or on the street, it’s all I see.
At the bars we used to meet, douchebaggery.

I ask myself, I ask myself, was my wave better than theirs?
(repeat)

My wave of gentrification.

Open your pockets, nothing can stop it. I was the problem, now they are the problem.
(repeat)
