In The City (First Versions)

by Skreen B's Orchestra Of Fiction

In the city marriage is not the same Love is a puppet and a manly game Robots of fashion execute the pain Destroy all they hate My life is a sickening game I cannot understand the executive plan The cramped conditions accelerate A flower blooms and is cut in the bud My clothes are soiled and torn TV talks of nuclear war The young go to bed and mourn Pensioners stare at the walls I heard a man the other day Talking about some money he lost years ago Remind me please to believe From where the intoxication comes I saw a dead tramp the other day His eyes held a fantasy land It melted the humour away So I screened my face Sweep and collect the engineer's hands Before you lies a beauty queen Her face burns into the mirror I remember the future and ignore In the city
