"When the City Lights Dim" as written by and Ladan/roberts Hussein....
I will teach these lungs to yearn,
fill this hungry heart with things to burn.
The seeing tower will glow into me,
guide my blood home.
And I was as calm as a child.
Take it to the river, take it down slow.
My, oh, my, don't you know my will is good.
In the cold morning, I heard them breath.
Said, my, oh, my, don't you know my will is good.

Pretty horses and pale thoughts worked below these lines.
Dissolve into me.
Now they are all mine.
My thirsty eyes will carry you all through the night.
Hush now, you are all mine.

Whoa, I was as calm as a child.

Take it to the river, take it down slow.
My, oh, my, don't you know my will is good.
In the cold morning, I heard them breathe.
Said, my, oh, my, don't you know my will is good.

The night is young, I will not wait.
We're thick as thieves, in second grade.
I'm wide awake with bare hands.
Tell your mother I'm coming home.
The tide crept under my feet.
The tide crept under my feet.
