So you must try it
This life
You're talking about
This life of light and serenity
But your eyes just see the walls of the city
The sunlight is invisible for you
The sun don't exist
You're living in darkness and ignorance
You don't like what you are and what You want to be

So you must try it
This life
You're talking about
This life ol' light and serenity
But your mind don't accept your nature
Because the light of your cities make it incredible
The world you like do exist under the ground of your cities
He is waiting for you

You're living in darkness and ignorance
What do you like? what do you hate?
You must live your choice but not in a whiskey drink

So you must try it
This life you're talking about
This life of light
You're living what you hate
This life of light and serenity
But your eyes just see the world of the city

    My Opinionthe best band with the greatest musical sensibilities for someone like me, that i love to death and then to death again, that i just can't listen to sometimes.. i'm not sure honestly if it's Philippe or Herve that sings, but they make Bernie Sumner sound like he was classically trained. it frustrates me when i share something like this song, or take the shock away with someone for the first time, all they hear is out of tune... but they are so IN tune under the surface. i'm bald so i can't pull out my hair, but i would. so, not the greatest at holding a note. if you can get past this, you wil understand why they are still beheld with such reverence from those who get T21
