Metropolis
There'll never be another quite like you
I'm so involved with everything you do
Don't say nothing good will ever come of this
Don't say the damage is worse than it is

Back in Metropolis, circuses and elephants
Where the oranges grew
Back in Metropolis nothing can ever topple us
When I'm standing with you

You stare down at some crowd from your trapeze
And when you fell they fell down on their knees
And when you broke they scrambled for a piece
And when you spoke I felt their anger freeze

Back in Metropolis, circuses and elephants
Where the oranges grew
Back in Metropolis nothing can ever topple us
When I'm standing with you

Back in Metropolis talk about a holocaust
And then visit the zoo
Back in Metropolis, the weather is ridiculous
What's it all leading to

And it's only a day away
We could leave tonight
You could sleep along the way
Dream in black and white

Back in Metropolis, circuses and elephants
Where the oranges grew
Back in Metropolis nothing can ever topple us
When I'm standing with you

Back in Metropolis talk about a holocaust
And then visit the zoo
Back in Metropolis, the weather is ridiculous
What's it all leading to
