Concrete and chaos rise up
Spiderweb across the land
Like a giant rash
Forests lie down below
Foundations of buildings in a bed of ash
Some people here got it real good
'Cause the glass towers bring prosperity
And other people starve in the street
Because concrete knows no sympathy

Big city
Big city
Big city
Big city
Big city
Big city
Big city, it's a wishing well
Big city, it's a living hell

This town it's fucking insane
How one will starve and another will gain
It's like a giant mechanical brain
And the people are cells and the streets are veins
It thinks only of itself
A thousand limbs crawling as it expands and grows
And still the concrete sits there
Sits there stark grey and cold

Big city
Big city
Big city
Big city
Big city
Big city
Big city, it's a wishing well
Big city, it's a living hell

And I think I wanna be a brick layer
So I can put another brick in the wall
It's sanitary rational and happy and sane
Growing like a flower to surround us all

Big city
Big city
Big city
Big city
Big city
Big city
Big city, it's a wishing well
Big city, it's a living hell

Big city
Big city
Big city
Big city
Big city
Big city
Big city, it's a wishing well
Big city, it's a living hell
