Spotlight

In the spotlight life is so peachy yeah, yeah, yeah
wouldn't you like to retire with a million?

A million beating hearts
behind brick and cold steel piping
fighting for the top
fighting for the room to breathe
bench parks sleepers lie
cold blanket bed less babies
here this must stop
I cannot stay

Damn you, big city, black city
rising up around me, steal my soul away
big city, black city
rise and take me over, steal my soul away
but all out in this world
the night it crawls it falls much harder than I recall
out in this world
a siren calls from every corner

In the spotlight life is so peachy, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
all of us in the spotlight for a reason, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
caught for stealing somebody's riches, no, no, no, no
wouldn't you like to retire with a million bucks?
yeah

Came here from a small town
I see my dreams here in the big city
sour disappointment
I cannot stay

Damn you, big city, black city
rising up around me, steal my soul away
Big city, black city
rise and take me over, steal my soul away
but all out in this world
the night it crawls it falls much harder than i recall
out in this world
a siren calls from every corner

In the spotlight life is so peachy, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
all of us in the spotlight for a reason, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
caught for stealing somebody's riches, no, no, no, no
wouldn't you like to retire with a million bucks?
yeah

yeah....
yeah....
yeah....
yeah....

    General CommentI actully do have a studio version of this.. it was supposedly going to be put onto "Lillywhite Sessions" if you would like a copy... just holla at me... By the way, I enjoy this song much.. I just like how when the song kicks into the "Damn you, big city, black city" Also it somewhat sounds like a R.E.M. type thing when they sing the "yeah yeah yeah"s.
