i get along same as anyone
pay my money for the good of the nation
raise my face when the sun hit's the city
wonder if there's still any vitamins innit

my friend says that we all need saving
from car parks and governments and alligators
it's a long way down from the tallest building
but it's the gas from the basement that eventually kills ya

looked around town for shrinks and saviours
people all running on simulators
think 'i gotta join a gym' but ya leave a month later
cos ya saw somethin better on the add in the paper

this is called the city but it's more a state of mind than anything else
you get so busy, got no time to analyse why in your dreams you are just floating there like dishes in the sink, so you get up and hit the city. you're just tryin to make the best of it.

beard keeps growin so you keep shavin
fast food eating everyone in the nation
sticks and stones won't break your bones
but yer phone's ringtones got everybody worried about the radiation

this is called the city but it's more a state of mind than anything else
you get so busy, got no time to analyse why in your dreams you are just floating there like dishes in the sink, so you get up and hit the city. you're just tryin to make the best of it.

it's a long way home
it's a long way down

analyzin, super-sizin, young men learnin about compromisin, faces wisen, rents keep risin
don't waste your time tryin to read between the lines you'll just find they sold the space there for advertising.
