This city sleeps alone.
Separate, encaged, with their bodies so far from home.
They're taking away that which you should remember.
(I can't recall..)
I can't remember the last time I felt alive.

We're all searching for something;
to keep this city breathing on our own.
I watched you walk alone.

We felt this closing in around us, still no one found us.
(We're all searching)
These walls aren't listening to save you tonight.
This city's survival relies on borrowed time.

It doesn't matter who you are or what you do, they're gonna find you.
Don't let them entwine their lies in truth, they're gonna find you.
"If you've got the time, I can free your heart and mind.
But you've got to trust in something bigger than all of us."

I've never seen these lines drawn in sand before.
I've never seen such misery, I keep coming back for more.

I am machinery, free to dream.
Born against this scenery,
where nothing's as it seems.

So close your eyes to this city's night and it source of light.
We're all living for, we're all living on borrowed time.
"They came for me, they'll come for you too."
