Manhattan TransferMetropolis

Once there was light Perfectly white Far as the eye could wander Once there was time Morning and night Once there was sky -- over yonder The day begins Metropolis lies sleeping like a drunken soldier Behind the wheel you come alive And down into it's heart you motor Atop the rise - Metropolis Defender of the high and mighty At every turn the homeless wait Reminding you of all that might be Hurry now, there is somebody there to meet you Office girls sweet and innocent poised to greet you Through the glass fifty stories below you There's a place I've been meaning to show you Full of sights that are certain to blow you away Beneath the haze Metropolis awakens with a hiss and rumble You'll hear a knock, don't hesitate They mustn't ever see you stumble You'll never last down on the street Where staying on your toes ain't ballet It's getting by or getting beat From curtain to the grand finale In the air there is music and sounds of laughter For the moment it's happily ever after Through the glass fifty stories below you In the shadows where nobody knows you There's a stranger who's dying to show you the way Now entering Metropolis Creation of a world gone crazy The alleyway - the resting place Still echo from the souls trapped under You lock the doors, step on the gas And push until it goes no faster You close your eyes and leave behind Metropolis lord and master © 2018
