"New City" as written by and Alfred Moore Thomas....
We've been hanging out here too long
Hoping something promising will wander along
We've been going about things all wrong
Contemplating chances that have already gone

You know when the money runs out
Then the money runs out

I've been looking at you all day
Staring at each other 'cause there's nothing to say
Waiting for this state to be done
Blowing heavy kisses in remembrance of love

You know once the feeling runs out
Then the feeling runs out
And when the devil gets inside your house
You got to build a new house

Now it doesn't matter where I go
The comet's crumbling
The second that my foot hits the floor

The city's falling apart
It's time to build a new city
When it's falling apart

Doesn't matter what you say to me
You can tell me the truth
But I do not believe

The city's falling apart
It's time to build a new city
When it's falling apart
When it's falling apart

I've been looking here like you're the sun
Saw the report you're slouching murder into the mud
Hanging on every word
Our offenses in the future sounded simply absurd

You know once the money runs out
Then the money runs out
And when the devil gets inside your house
You got to build a new house

Now it doesn't matter where I go
The comet's crumbling
The second that my foot hits the floor

The city's falling apart
It's time to build a new city
When it's falling apart

Doesn't matter what you say to me
You can tell me the truth
But I do not believe

The city's falling apart
It's time to build a new city
When it's falling apart

Now it doesn't matter where I go
The comet's crumbling
The second that my foot hits the floor

The city's falling apart
It's time to build a new city
When it's falling apart

Doesn't matter what you say to me
You can tell me the truth
But I do not believe

The city's falling apart
It's time to build a new city
When it's falling apart
When it's falling apart
When it's falling apart
