"Mercy I Cry City" as written by and Mike Heron....
Since you got me here
I see you're trying to steal my soul
Your army's trying so very hard
To find for me a goal

But where's your quiet pastures
Where there's time for me to be
Nothing else but what I am
That's what you seem scared to see

You cover up your emptiness
With brick and noise and rush
Oh, I can see and touch you
But you don't owe reality much

Have mercy I cry city, you're all upon my mind
And sometimes I think you keep forgettin'
That you don't know me
Mercy I cry city, you're all upon my mind

Oh, send another carriage
Chugging down your chokey tube
I hope it makes you happy
'Cause it don't do my health much good

You're slowly killing fumes
Now squeeze the lemon in my head
Make me know just what it's like
For a sin drenched Christian to be dead

Ah, show to me your glitter
And your flashing neon light
You see, I think that only the sun knows
How to be quietly bright

Have mercy I cry city, you're all upon my mind
That sometimes I think you keep forgettin'
That you don't know me
Mercy I cry city, you're all upon my mind

Oh city, what you been doin'?
All these years, what you been doin'?
Who would believe that what you been doin'
Would make such a ruin of you?

Hey city, what you been doin'?
All these years, what you been doin'?
Who would believe that what you been doin'
Would make such a ruin of you?
Tell me city
