The rising moon faces the sickening sun and the lights in the tower blocks go on, one by one
A big shot, overlooking this black iron skyline, surrounded by his symbols of prosperity
Sits back in his new leather chair, ripped off the back of some unfortunate beast
I'm smiling through my teeth
Anybody can be a millionaire so everybody's gotta try
By the laws of this human jungle, only the heartless will survive
And down there, but for the grace of god, go I

The smoke and the steam and the broken down dreams
The hope and the hunger, frustration and anger
The love drunken lives driven' through the traffic lights and away from who they are
But I've been thinking of you in this great city of great solitude

Crossin' the central reservation of my imagination, searchin' for the world I left behind
A shadow hunting shadows of childhood life
It's all I want and all I miss but how can I return to a place that don't exist?

From Mombassa to Miami, Beirut to Bangladesh, I've flown around the world standing on the wing of a jet
Tryin' to salvage my emotions from the bottom of the oceans
Ye see I sold my soul to pay for my dinner, my stomach grew fatter but my heart grew thinner
I ain't foolin', I'm fallin' (Fallin', fallin'), I wasn't wicked, just weak
I ain't lyin', I'm dyin', crippled by deceit

Crossin' the central reservation of my imagination, searchin' for the world I left behind
A shadow hunting shadows of childhood life
It's all I want and all I miss but how can I return to a place that don't exist?
Oh these hands that wrote the agony has just begun will be the hand that's on the trigger of this gun, of this
