LyricsEdit

City night,
Where all the butcher’s blocks are looking for a bite.
City night,
And all the stars are spent while bullets steal their lights.
City night,
And all the sanctuaries vanishing from sight.

City night,
And all the children in their cages sleeping tight.
City night,
And all the inmates making love by the TV light.
City night,
And all the shadows roam the streets looking for fights.

So give yourself to the rising wind
The gradual execution will now begin
When there's nothing to lose, then there's nothing left to win.

Who knows where this city ends
And the house of detention begins?
Who knows where this city ends
And the house of detention begins?

City night,
And all our children in their cages sleeping tight.
City night,
And all the inmates making love by the TV light.
City night,
And all the shadows roam the streets looking for fights.

So give yourself to the rising wind
The gradual execution will now begin
When there's nothing to lose then there's nothing left to win.

Who knows where my body ends
And where their bodies begin?
Who knows where my body ends
And where their bodies begin?

The sky is shaking so that I can hardly stand
I’m just a kid; don’t make me feel like a man.
And in the moonlight I can see your trembling hands.
I’m just a kid; don’t make me feel like a man.
