"Black City" as written by Henrik Rostberg, Per Stalberg, Jonas Gustavsson and Hakan Johansson....
Sitting burden on the office chair
Empty mind, empty bank account.
If this is your piece, your piece is a mess to me.

Hundreds killed on the internet.
Life delete, all is set.
If this is your truth, your truth is a mess to me.

If common sense means no control,
You've got it all.
If common sense means no control,
You've got it all, you've got it.
If common sense means no control,
You've got it all.
If common sense means no control.

Sitting choking on the office chair.
Empty mind, empty bank account.
If this is your piece, your prophet is piece to me.

Thousands killed on the internet
Life delete, all is set.
If this is your truth, your truth is a mess to me.
Yeah.

If common sense means no control,
You've got it all.
If common sense means no control,
You've got it all, you've got it.
If common sense means no control,
You've got it all.
If common sense means no control.
You've got it.
You've got it.

Love your money, love your money.
Love your money, love your money.

Love your money, love your money.
Love your money, love your money.

    General CommentThis song is incredible. I can relate so much to it because there are so many people in the town i live in that are..consumed by their money. there's alot of people in this world now days with 'common sense'...i think a little less money would do some people alot of good. not that money is a bad thing..i'm all for it. it can ruin some people though..

    General CommentThe best out of a pack of good bands to spring from Sweden in the last few years. Division is light years ahead of thier countrymen musiclly. The energy of the album helps it transcend one damn genre and makes it own identity. A must buy, i mean you juts have to support these guys.

    General CommentThis song, to me, is about the let-down of capitalism. Just work, waste time online, and live like a mindless robot so you can have money to buy material things to feel as if you've "made it".
