"Sex City" as written by Tomek Archer, Nicholas Routledge, Michael Di Francesco and Matthew Van Schie....
In the dark lights, We come out and play
We are its children, And we're here to stay
Running through the streets, Hungry for strays
No invitation, To take me away

I'm not cruel, But that's still what you see
Club to club, Come see this city with me
Hungry for life, Without your pity
I don't want it, But it comes anyway

You go sexual city
You till can't say she won't start up a fight
You go the city
'Cause in the city of life she can't, she can't wait

In the darkness, A killer awaits
To kill a life, And the lies you make
You do another, So this death can live
Just keep on dancing, To the movie you're in

The smell of your sweat, Just lures me in
Your heartbeat, Does sing to me
Your running feet, Beats my blood
My ghost inside you, Soon will be

You go sexual city
You till can't say she won't start up a fight
You go the city
'Cause in the city of life she can't, she can't wait

Now it's over, You've taken your life
The dark grows thin, And I'm left to hide
I don't regret it, But it's sad anyway
Now were both dead, And scared of the black

This life of games, And diligent trust
It's the things we do, Or the things we must
I'm now tired of being cussed
So go sleep forever end to dust

You go sexual city
You till can't say she won't start up a fight
You go the city
'Cause in the city of life she can't, she can't wait

    General Commentit's about sex.
    and it's almost as if it's what the city and what the people that live there live off.
    as if they need it to survive.
    it's like if you go to the "city" then theres no turning back.
    and in he end the city will always win.
    if that makes any sense.
    it does to me

    i love the teenagers remix of this.

    :)

    General Commentyeah in an interview the guys said sex city was about vampires. I always figured the vampire thing was a metaphor for being young and picking up and the whole scene out on the town

    General CommentThe lyrics on this are wrong, I think its

    In the dark lights, We come out and play
    We are its children, And we're here to stay
    Running through the streets, Hungry for strays
    No invitation, To take me away
    I'm not cruel, But thats still what you see
    Club to club, Come on the city with me
    Hungry for life, Without your pity
    I dont want sex but you give it to me

    Chorus
    You go sexual city
    You still can't say she won't start up a fight
    You go the city
    'Cause in the city of life she can't, she can't wait

    Verse 2
    In the darkness, A killer awaits
    To kill a life, And the lies you make
    You do another, So this death can live
    Just keep on dancing, To the movie you're in
    The smell of your sweat, Just lures me in
    Your heartbeat does things to me
    Running feet, Beats through my blood
    My ghost inside you, Soon will be

    Chorus

    Verse 3
    Now it's over, You've taken your life
    The dark grows thin, And I'm left to hide
    I don't regret it, But it's sad anyway
    Now we're both dead, And scared of the black
    This life of games, And diligent trust
    It's the things we do, Or the things we must
    I'm now tired of being cursed
    So go to sleep forever into dust

    Chorus

    It's fairly obviously a vampire analogy but as Dalms says its probably a metaphor for wasted youth
