"Tokyo!" as written by and Josh Ritter....
Tokyo!
I know from all your lightbulbs that you know
the real deal when you see it -- if you see it won't you tell me so?

Oh we've come too far -- too far to be so far apart.

Tokyo!
I see by all your lightbulbs that you know
that no matter how kind, love at times gonna take its toll.
Gonna crash it downtown, making sounds you ain't heard before.

Oh we've come too far -- too far to be so far apart.

Don't let the things you hold on to ever outnumber the things you let go.
Don't let the things you remember ever outnumber the things you live for.

Tokyo!
I know from all your movies that you know
the real deal when you see it -- if you see it won't you tell me so?
A brother is the future and a sister is a UFO
And she'll come rising from the tide, running riot up and down your coast;
shooting lasers from her eyes, eating bystanders, sinking boats.
You don't want to go down neither -- tell me if you see her, Tokyo.

Oh we've come too far -- too far to be so far apart.
