Now you can come closer, you can get warm but you get no pie
But you can sell it for em so here’s you bow tie
The expression “you’re getting warmer” is used to describe the nearness of figuring out something. More intricate however is this a play on his references earlier in the verse:
“You can come closer, you can get warm” — Remember he’s “sitting on the storm that he got soaked by” so he’s the drier.
Driers are hot when running — he never sleeps so he’s always running/hot. You can try to get on his level. Could also be referring to the oven he’s making his dough (pie) rise in.
“but you get no pie” — You couldn’t get on his level so failed to produce any pie (dough/money).
“But you can sell it for em so here’s your bow tie” — He’s on top (the drier). In other words, he’s the boss/CEO (top of his game) so you can do his dirty work for him. The pie reference may be inspired by the many Muslims who sell bean pies on street corners while dressed in a suit and bow tie.
