Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Yeah

Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

One city sleeps though lights never cease
Astonishing me through clouds and over dreams

One city fades
(One city fades)
For rent and maze
Through turbulent stages
Oh
One city unchanged

One city hears
(One city hears)
Its children in tears
Babies shed tears falling from their first years

One city's gone
(One city's gone)
From night that one charm
A love has been known in one city alone

Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Yeah

Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

One city rests with rain and lust on buildings and curbs
Well they screw without words
These people's lives
Cut with bad knives
But who is to blame for one city and place

Soul upon soul strive for this control
The building will break
They will find their escape from palms that sweat
Forgive not forget the fingers that bleed
One city in need

Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Yeah

Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh oh

Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Yeah

Oh oh
Oh oh
Oh oh oh

Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Yeah
Yeah

Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh
Yeah

Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh
Yeah

I close my eyes
I try to sleep but I just cannot seem to keep away the dreams
Except with words that cut too deep
Everyone seems out of reach
They do not hear me

They do not hear because they're weak
I know exactly where they've been and where that dead end street leads
I close my eyes and try to keep away from these tears
These fears
And get out of these lucid dreams

Way up
Look beyond the buildings that surround you
Way up
You will find a world that will astound you

Way up
Look beyond the buildings that surround you
Way up
You will find a world that will astound you

Way up
Look beyond the buildings that surround you
Way up
You will find a world that will astound you

Way up
Look beyond the buildings that surround you
Way up
You will find a world

Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh

Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh
