"Floating City" as written by and Tori Ellen Amos....
You went away
Why did you leave me
You know I believed you
Nothing explained
Where are the answers
I know I need you
Tell me is your city paved with gold
Is there hunger
Do your people grow old
Do your governments have secrets that they've sold

Every night I wait take me away
To your floating city
By my window at night
I see the lights to your floating city
Come and take me away
I want to play in your floating city
Floating city

T.V. turns off
Any of us that
Say that we've seen you
Tell me are we
The only planet
That can conceive you
Will we be like Atlantis long ago
So assured that we're advanced
With what we know
That our spirit never had time to grow

Is it weak to look for
Saviors out in space
Little Earth she tries so hard
To change our ways
Sometimes she must get
Sick of this place

    General CommentIt is so hilarious that she wrote a song about aliens and Atlantis. I picture what would have happened if this song had gotten famous .... fourteen year olds discovering this song and the ridiculous book "Chariots of the Gods?" at the same time.
