Knock Knock - Song Lyrics from the 90s

When Marion Daze was performing live, we usually opened up with this song. It had a good hook and the energy level was right. The song was about living in the East Village of New York and encountering all the people that lived on the street. This is still very relevant in a nation with so much money......San Francisco and Oakland are experiencing the impact of a housing shortage I believe caused by the greedy banks that cheated people and caused real estate to soar. A problem indeed. Thousands of people are living on the streets along the boulevards and under bridges and highways often surrounded by garbage. What is the solution? 

Knock Knock - Live at CBGBs Marion Daze


Knock Knock

By Julie Gengo / Ohad Varsano

Running around
In a frazzled world
Past the man
With his potions unfurled
He knows where hes going
He knows how to pay
His secrets are tokens
In a non transferable way

He lives in a shell
Knock knock
Is the living well
I don't know why
I can't get to him

He lives in a shell
Knock knock
It's a living hell
I don't know why
I can't get to him

Traveling by night
In a fragile world
Pass the woman
Whose reading the words
Be kind to your neighbors
Don't tread on their hands
They live in the cracks
Of this bountiful land

She lives in a shell
Knock knock
Is the living well?
I don't know why
I can't get to her

She lives in a shell
Knock knock
It's a living hell
I don't know why
I can't get to her

Take my hand
I will lead you through
Down the 
The corridor
To the big black room

If you take my hand
I will lead you through
Down the
The corridor
To the big black room

La la lum
la la la la la la la la lum.....
