"City Calm Down" as written by and Bird/cecil/sutherland/perry/mildren....
Drinking stolen gin from the rich people's bar next door (and awkwardly)
I'm leaning on the shoulder of the neighbour who you choose to ignore
(and she says won't you calm down)
City city won't you calm down we're never goin' get to the bottom while there's traffic around

Passed a little lonely cleanse if we play our cards right we can be more than friends,
Still Oh so s-u-d-d-e-nly (so suddenly) ways of calculating ways of catapulting you and me
(out of this town)
City city won't you calm down they'll never know we're in here if we don't make a sound
Faster we'll divide all the sense into tiny parcels are you hoping it's tense girl?

    General CommentI can't believe nobody has commented on this song yet!

    Architecture in Helsinki is a great band, &my favorite band at that. This song is just amazing. &The tune is so. Nice. haha, for lack of better word.

    CoRRECTION; It's COUSIN, not NEIGHBOR.

    Not to be obvious, but since nobody has commented yet.
    I think this song is about this guy finding a girl, &he wants the "city city won't you calm down" so that he&his paramour can sneak out. The fact that he's kinda whispering in this song has a great effect because it's like he's telling a secret, &he doesn't want anybody to know that they want to run off together.
