"When the City Breathes" as written by Mark Hockings and Richard James Silverthorn....
You’re just like a lens for all of it
You can make sense of all those lights
You can move street to doorway
Sucking on the air of all those nights

Feel the drums and the bass as they tear down the walls
Hear the screams of the crowd as they take to the floor
See the role of the dice as he loses it all
Who could dream of anything more?

When the city breathes, you just can’t leave
It’s got you deep beneath it’s skin
When the city calls, the downbeat stalls
You don’t care who or where you’ve been

All the pretty things
The drunken scenes
The I.D. teens
The drama queens
The should’ve beens
The ways and means
It’s everything you thought it would be.

Crashing through a wall of drum beats
Pushing back the dawn with all of your might
Winding up the crowd from your seat
Nothing you can do to kill this night

Feel the drums and the bass as they tear down the walls
Hear the screams of the crowd as they take to the floor
See the role of the dice as he loses it all
Who could dream of anything more?

When the city breathes, you just can’t leave
It’s got you deep beneath it’s skin
When the city calls, the downbeat stalls
You don’t care who or where you’ve been

All the pretty things
The drunken scenes
The I.D. teens
The drama queens
The should’ve beens
The ways and means
It’s everything you thought it would be
