It's a long drive into the city
Especially when there's not radio
It's just you and your thoughts
You feel like you're lost at the sea
The clock reads 6 AM
The skyline is a shade of gray
There's no such thing as tomorrow
You can only live for today

Oh-a-oh
The lights are getting brighter
Oh-a-oh
Feel the heat from the fire
Oh-a-oh
You will be devoured in the city
In the city

I'm standing on the top of this building
Wind blowing me from side to side
I'm not afraid of death
I'm just afraid of not being alive
You say there's voices in your head
Monsters underneath your bead
That's why at night you dress up as a Watchmen
To watch them

Oh-a-oh
The lights are getting brighter
Oh-a-oh
Feel the heat from the fire
Oh-a-oh
You will be devoured in the city
In the city

(Whoa-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh
??????????????? again)

Oh-a-oh
The lights are getting brighter
Oh-a-oh
Feel the heat from the fire
Oh-a-oh
You will be devoured in the city
In the city
Oh-a-oh
The lights are getting brighter
Oh-a-oh
You swear you're on fire
Oh-a-oh
You will be devoured in the city
In the city

The city that never sleeps
Raise up their wings
The wind is besieging
If the city never sleeps
