"The City" as written by and Zakariah Dane/leclercq Stucchi....
When I was young I lived atop a mountain oh so high
It was built of ivory bricks and glass and towered in the sky
I lived above my brother and beside my father too
But they hardly ever saw me as I hung out on the roof
And I looked out on the city and the taxi cabs below
I would cherish that I had this little place to call my own
Well I thought I knew the future of the mountains in my range
If the future taught me anything the past can never change

Well I sit atop this city blowing smoke rings in the sky
With the twin peaks looming way above the place where I get high
And 10 million heads below me on an island I call mine
But we all find away to share it while we avoid each others eyes
But the truth is that these people are as much my family
As we share a love for mountains that are circled by the sea
While I look upon the city that I’ve grown to call my own
No matter where this journey takes me this place will always be my home

Whooooo-oooah
Sitting on a mountain top, fifteen miles above the city
Whooooo-oooah
Sitting in this melting pot where you can see the future with me
