"The City" as written by and Vangelis....
It 's a fucked up city
of drug addicted despair
It 's not safe in the playgrounds
There 's stray bullets in the air
nobody shows no pity
nobody really cares
The police , they turn a blind eye
As the innocent die
CHORUS
There 's to many people , you 're getting lost in the crowd
Nobody shows you no respect , somebody 's gonna end up dead
You try to earn respect with a gun in your hand
Resorting to violence will get you nowhere , nowhere !!
Metal detectors at school doors
Another kid 's been shot
The kid 's are gathering on the street corners
There 's a war to be fought
Still nobody shows no pity
Nobobdy really cares
Nothing ever changes
Everything 's gone crazy
CHORUS
