lyrics

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
