"Metropolis" as written by Adam R. Young and Matthew Arnold Thiessen....
There'll never be another quite like you
I'm so involved with everything you do
Don't say nothing good will ever come of this
Don't say the damage is worse than it is

Back in Metropolis, circuses and elephants
Where the oranges grew
And back in Metropolis nothing can ever topple us
When I'm standing with you

You stare down at some crowd from your trapeze
And when you fell they fell down on their knees
And when you broke they scrambled for a piece
And when you spoke I felt their anger freeze

Back in Metropolis, circuses and elephants
Where the oranges grew
And back in Metropolis nothing can ever topple us
When I'm standing with you
And back in Metropolis talk about a holocaust
And then visit the zoo
And back in Metropolis the weather is ridiculous
What's it all leading to

And it's only a day away
We could leave tonight
You could sleep along the way
Dream in black and white

    General CommentThis song reminds me of when my husband and I lived mid-continent USA and we would fantasize of driving all night to get back to Tampa, Florida--where we met...where the oranges grew and the weather was rediculous.

    General CommentI agree with all of you. Not sure if it is their best song but at worst it ties with Under the Milky way for their best song.

    I get that it is two people who left a place where they were happy. Right now they are having some rough times but feels that maybe things could be better if they made a road trip back to the city, maybe to visit or maybe to stay.
