Sometimes this city looks petrified
I'm out here prowling like a wolf tonight
Got no defenses when you're on your own
Trying to survive inside this danger zone

Everyone here is getting so defensive
They've lost their way and they've lost their senses
My pulse is pounding and my heart is beating
I've lost control and I've lost all reason

The light is fading and it's getting dark
Shadowy strangers in the switching yard
Kids hanging out just waiting for the man
He's always going to have the upper hand
My head is spinning, I can't think too clear
I just keep dreaming I'll get out of here
I'll find a place where I can find myself
Crawl through a hole, escape the Citadel
The walls of Babylon are built so high
But there's a new world on the other side
So I keep on searching, hold on to this dream
The only thing they cannot take from me
We sit here waiting for some understanding
Life in this city is just way too demanding
People talking at me, unrelenting
Until I find that I have lost my senses

When you've finally got nothing to lose
Howl up at the moon
Last night I sat listening to you
Howling at the moon

The banker is wearing a suspender belt
He's drinking French champagne and raising hell
He likes the feel of his Versace dress
He's smeared his lipstick and it's such a mess

I look at life and see the other side
Some crazy junkie just shot out the lights
Muslims and Christians and the Holy Jews
They do their best to make a mess of you

When you've finally got nothing to lose
Howl up at the moon
Last night I sat listening to you
Howling at the moon
