lyrics

Stop the traffic, Put the sirens to sleep
Tell me I am not just one of the sheep lying in wait
Tell me any lie to heal my pride

In this city, In this city, you burn
Your ambition’s bitter taste as it turns to ash in your mouth
Hold me close and never let me go

In this city of light, I have wandered for days
I will stay up forever and cast all dreams away
In this city of lies, I have nothing to say
In this bustle and buzzing, I scream in vain

I’ll go crazy and lose myself to the gloom, if
No one hears me barking up at the moon, broken and proud
In these streets in plain sight I will hide

In this city of light, I have wandered for days
I will stay up forever and cast all dreams away
In this city of lies, I have nothing to say
Nothing I’ve done has mattered, so let come what may
