Cruel City

It's about longing to leave your surroundings because you feel there's only pain if you don't get out soon

We took each other’s hands and ran to the station

Garden of Eden before us and the city far behind

Smoke steaming from the train, destiny’s destination

Are we leaving for better or worse?

Are we only leaving ourselves to be hurt?

 

We tried to live in a utopia that wasn’t ours

Between death and life, dwindling away the hours

We’ll run away with our demons behind us

Our minds made up, this city can only kill love

 

Let’s leave in the evening light

Clear and free, we can run away

Leaving this city for the last time

Escape the city tonight

We’ll abandon the city for life

 

Now we’re living a life that’s only makeshift

But it’s better than the city behind

We’re away before we suffered the worst of it

We’re leaving because home is hell bound now

But what circles lay sprawled before us?

 

There’s nothing left in this city for us anymore

The grey skies and glint of knives continue to haunt

Where can we go, where can we be

We need to leave this cruel city

Let’s leave in the evening light

Clear and free, we can run away

Leaving this city for the last time

Escape the city tonight

We’ll abandon the city for life

The End
