lyrics

[Verse]
You said it was a walking city
You didn't tell me there was nowhere to go
I had direction, and then I lost it
Wound up by the hardware store

A startled woman in last season's sneakers
Cries at me from yards away
Hey man, are you from around here?
I say no, she goes on anyway

[Chorus]
How many blocks in a mile?
Can I get there on my feet?
How many blocks in a mile?
Is there an end to this street?

[Verse]
Is that an existential question?
Or is it just a question of scale
Whoever was the urban planner
Their career was set to fail

There's a city underneath the city
A hidden network of blood and dreams
I'm content that I will never know it
Now can I go before I freeze

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
From Xerox Square
To Kodak Square
Tell me they don't look the same

From Kodak Square
To Xerox Square
Tell me they don't look the same

[Chorus]
