High-rise buildings
Low cost apartments
Financial district
Industrial area
Rows of blue collars
Steelworkers' clink-clang
Metal rhythm left and right
This is the city, city of light

Flicker
Click on
The faceless men
Click off
Click on
The machines of the city

Next the inner city
6 P. M. Whistle
Smiling grimey faces
Low-cut dresses
Tea at the local pub
High-spirited workers
Sizzling neon-lights, click on
This is the city, city of light
Click on

Flicker
Click on
Click off
The faceless men
The machines of the city

2 A. M. Binge
Low-life slagheap
Ramble, shamble on home
Used up and burnt out
Like a kick in the teeth
This is the city, city of light
Grime back in harness

Metal rhythm left and right
Flicker
Click on
Click on
Click off
The machines of the citythe faceless men
