Took a train to the city
Thought something might be going down
But we found the dead heart
Of a dead town
In the streets that were usually living
It seemed everyone had given up
Torn it down
Worn it out

But we love it just the same
It’s in our blood it’s in our veins

We cut a hole through the pavement
Just trying to get to the core
We were reaching out
To the underground
We fucked with the fascists and racists
In the hope of hitting our own oil
To tap the ground
Of this tired town

But we love it just the same
It’s in our blood it’s in our veins

I love where I’m living
In this dead town
In the space between lost and found
I love where I’m living
On this backdrop
And I’m never gonna give it up

There you go
You throw it to the wind
You talk about the future
Stacking statements once again

We’re all the same
It’s in our blood it’s in our veins

It’s black & white
We’re the same inside
