I’m slipping in the slime
I’m running out of time
Abandoned in this hell
You said all would be well
But you lied!

I’m going back

I’m going back to the city
Knockin’ on the door
Back to the city
To where I was before
Back to the city
Where I am not alone
I’m going home

Why would you leave me here
As soon as troubles rise?
Don’t give a place to fear
He’ll wipe every tear from your eyes

I’ve got my ball and jack
And now I’m going back
If now it’s dark and cold
What more awaits you down this road?

I’m going back to the city
I can hardly wait
Back to the city
Passing through the gate
Back to the city
The lights, the stars, the show
I’m coming home

Back to the city
Knocking on the door
Back to the city
To where I was before
Light up the Superdome
I’m coming home

The man sank deep in that miry ground
With the pack on his back still weighing him down
While his friend left them there without even saying goodbye
He reached to the side and found Hope was there
As a hand helped him out of the pit of despair
He shook himself and walked in the ways of the sky…
