The Kills are one of my very favorite bands of all time, releasing their first albums on RCA Records and their last two on Domino Records, including Midnight Boom, the album on which this song appears.

The Kills “What New York Used To Be” Lyrics:

Come on, come on drama
Come on draw, scratch and say it
Say it, make it to the blind light
Climb and drop an apple
Off the top, it’s not
I don’t want to eat it
Need it, know it
Force and feed it
Leave it, be it
Just keep it
In its box

What? – Easy
Used to be what? – Love
Used to be what? – Drugs
Used to be what? – TV
Used to be what? – Music
Used to be what? – Luck
Used to be what? – Art
Used to be what you used to be

Come on drama, come on girl
You swing your mile long
Love song surely tells the future

In the water, shot of ecstasy
Secrets in the open bottle
Feed it, don’t believe it
Just leave it
In its box

What? – Easy
Used to be what? – Fun
Used to be what? – Dreaming
Used to be what? – Fame
Used to be what? – City
Used to be what? – Fast
Used to be what? – Low
Used to be what? – New York
Used to be what? – New York
Used to be what? – New York
Used to be what? – New York
Used to be what New York used to be
