lyrics

Lights went down on the 58th floor he saw flames he heard the bells
She stood inside the golden door in a robe and garter belt

The Harbor Girl the statue-ess the crowned colossal dream
She danced herself to breathlessness in the glow of his plasma screen

He closed his eyes he dreamt the night of the pomp and pageantry
Of the huddled mess the shackled light of yearning to be pleased

She placed her hand upon her breast astride the conquered limb
for hope and truth and righteousness she sang the Battle Hymn

The Exile Mother tempest tossed the lady unfulfilled
with silent lips she whispered soft "I don't love you and never will"
