City Lights

This song is by Zatopeks.

The city lights up like a cigarette

The moon's a broken heart and the stars are set

Like peep-holes in an empty sky

I wander lost alone on a Saturday night

I pass the Stalinist flats, I pass the Marxist punks

I pass the anarchist graffiti and although I'm drunk

My mind is clear, my heart's alive

I've been through this before and I know that I'll survive

I don't need your eyes, I've got the city lights

Electric lifeblood flowing through these concrete veins

And I don't need your truths

I've got one of my own...

Walking around in circles and I'm laughing at the night

You always said I was a psycho, I'm just trying to prove you right

And so the cards were stacked, I had no hand to play

The house we built collapsed, that's why I'm singing here today

And now I'm heading down to Simon-Dach, turn right up by the lights

Following the train tracks leading deep into the night

Dancing in the gutter, playing football with a stone

Turn left down by the bridge and then I take the long way home

I don't need your eyes, I've got the city lights

Electric lifeblood flowing through these concrete veins

And I don't need your words

I've got some of my own

Cold dark river keeps on flowing

I watch it from the bridge above

The moon's just another light that's glowing

On this heap of concrete that I love

I don't need your eyes, I don't need you
