Sick city yeah
Restless people
Sick city yeah
Burned their houses down
To make sky look pretty

What can I do? I'm just a person
This is the line
That we always seem to hear
You just sit, things get worse
Watch tv and drink your beer

Walking alone not going anywhere
Walking alone nobody seems to care
Restless as the wind this town is killing me
Gotta put an end to this restless misery

I'm just one of those restless people
Who can never seem to be
Satisfied with living
In this sickle sickle six six six sick city

It may be too late for me to say goodbye
It may be too late to watch a sick city die
Going on a road
Yeah I'm gonna try
I say sick city, so long farewell goodbye and die.

    General CommentCharles Manson cover song. Leaving the town in which you came from. The Sick City. You don't care if it all dies because it was never a part of you.

    General Commentthis was a song, like Kilby said, originally written and preformed by the shock icon charles manson. but your a little off on the concept. the song is about society in all. see charlie, as well as the whole manson family, were completely exposed to the full effects of marijuana and LSD. in so they saw many flaws in society and, so they saw it, great wars would come and before charlie got to the point of taking action to win the world from the jews, blacks, government, corperation, etc. he looked for release from such a "Sick City" hence the lyrc "..gotta put an end to this restless misery..." and in the end its almost like a suicide message saying hes gonna try to say goodbye. this is by far my favorite charles manson song. but i've only been able to find marilyn manson's version. but when i listen to it i can see and hear straight through the "honorable" brian Warner and hear charlie himself. its realy powerful. -thank you

    General Commentoh and you got the lyrics wrong, heres a complete correction:

    Sick city, yeah, restless people
    Sick city burn their houses down
    To make the sky look pretty
    What can I do?
    I'm just a person
    This is the line we always seem to hear
    You just sit and things get worse
    Watch tv and drink your beer
    Walking all alone
    Not going anywhere
    Walking all alone
    Nobody seems to care
    Restless as wind
    This town is killing me
    Gotta put an end to this
    Restless misery
    And I'm just one of those restless people
    That can never be satisfied with living
    In this sick ol' sick ol' sick sick sick city
    Might be too late for me to say goodbye
    Might be too late to watch this sick ol' city die
    Go on the road,
    Yeah im gonna try to say
    Sick city so long farewell
    Goodbye and die
