There's a place where all the pleople used to go. To ease the pain and cure the suffering. They try to hide their every-day prostitution, they value themselves by comparing themselves to others. They're not like me, I keep my self-deception, behind a mask of pride and dignity. It seems to me, that they are searching all-day, not knowing what they will find, to be...

I don't need the city, it never cared for me.
I don't need this pity, of tranquility.
I want to see the blue sky, but darkened clouds I see.
I don't need the city, I don't need this...

There's a place where all the pleople used to be, and suffocate from all their lies. Somehow they have managed all their misbehaviour, to the point of this despite. They're not like me, I hide my self-reflection, behind a wall of privacy. It seems to me, that I have found my pleasures, in watching them drowning... slowly.

I don't need the city, it never cared for me.
I don't need this pity, of tranquility.
I want to see the blue sky, but darkened clouds I see.
I don't need the city, I don't need this...

    General CommentOne of the best, this song is about ignorant people and their life in the big city... Prostitution, competitive lifestyle, meaningless existances and pollution...

    General CommentThis is such a good song.
    I agree with Gevrik, the song is about the ignorance of city-lifestyle...but there may be even more to it.

    He starts off talking about the city, how ignorant they are, how he doesn't need to live that way to live his life, but then the song comes to a slow with the line:
    "It seems to me, that I have found my pleasures, in watching them drowning... slowly." He then continues to sing "I don't need this...I don't want this"
    I think this means that he is finding out that he lives by taking pride in watching them "drown", and is therefore no better than them....saying I don't need this.
    Who knows, I could be way off.
    Who cares, this is so good of a song.
