I'm electrified by the city light
I get off where I need to
And with who I like
I'm a diplomat
I'm a subway rat
I like the unfamiliar
I'm not scared by that

I'm livin' downtown
I'm livin' downtown
I'm livin' downtown
And it's killin' me

This relentless drone bombs a quiet street
You can dance with the devil
You can shuffle your feet
We can burn it down
We can rest when we're dead
We're a pillow fight on a concrete bed

I'm livin' downtown
I'm livin' downtown
I'm livin' downtown
And it's killin' me

We're a faceless crowd
Yeah we walk here alone
The city streets are empty
'Til you make them your own
But hey, do I know you?
Have you ever seen me?
Everything's gotta be all right

I'm livin' downtown
I'm livin' downtown
I'm livin' downtown
And it's killin' me

I'm livin' downtown
And it's killin' me
