Strange tension in the harbor tonight
I watch the rich girls down on Duke St. pass me by
Now the nausea's in my guts and I'm wrestling with doubt
The kind you get when your heroes sell you out
And as I watch the drawbridge come down there's mass extinction on my mind
Human cruelty stains my thoughts jet black
I've got this feeling like things have gone too far and now we can't get back

    General CommentI feel you are all misled, this song definetly is a reference to the ancient city that Alexander the Great established while he was creating his vast empire, which instead of being ruled by the law was governed by the blade. Sully scoffs at such an idea to write a song about a city that quickly fell to intruders. Sully has recently purchased the state of wyoming, in which he will invite pig destroyer to play an acoustic version of this song, and once they are there will pee all over them and their equipment. when asked why he would do such a thing, he will remind him that his new state of Wyoming, "Stands Alone". YOUVE BEEN SMACKED!!!!!
