Coming back to the city
That I never quite leave
Picture you be the ocean
Picture me coughing into my sleeve

Like a snake eating snake you confuse me
Who's killer ? Who's captive ? Who's free ?
In a city that kills by constriction
Throw your streets around me and squeeze

And draw down the stars
Draw down the stars
What's in your heart?

    General CommentThe correct lyrics should be:
    Coming back to the city
    That I never quite leave
    Picture you by the ocean
    Picture me coughing into my sleeve

    Like a snake-eating snake you confuse me
    Who's killer, who's captive, who's free
    In a city that kills by constriction
    Throw your streets around me and squeeze

    And draw down the stars
    Draw down the stars
    What's in your heart
    Your heart

    This fluorescent night will divide us
    And dissolve to a flickering screen
    And we all know each others secrets
    Things seen but not seen

    And draw down the stars
    Draw down the stars
    What's in your heart

    Draw down the stars
    Draw down the stars
    What's in your heart
    Your heart

    General Commenti think those couple of lines...
    "This fluorescent night will divide us
    And dissolve to a flickering screen "
    are so beautiful. they're the type ofwords that give you a picture in front of your eyes as you read them

    General CommentIt's about not liking living in the city and wanting to be able to see the stars and the real people instead of flourescent glow signs and gossip and fake celebrities...it's a lovely sentiment.
