LYRICS

Metropolis

Metropolis

What the world needs now
Another charcoal man
Dying his death again
What the world demands
Making a bold debut
A dark hero for you

I left 
The club
I walked 
Until I didn't know where I was
And then
I played
Another card trick
That no one wanted to see

No kiss
no sigh
without a sound 
to the ground
I slip
So quiet
No name no face
No secret place

What the world needs now
Another charcoal man
Dying his death again
What the world demands
Making a bold debut
A dark hero for you


can walk
until my legs
give up on me
deny 
contort
until the world's 
had enough of me

But sitting here
it's not like
there's anyone listening
so I 
declare
an amnesty
in the drowning air

What the world needs now
Another charcoal man
Dying his death again
What the world demands
Making a bold debut
A dark hero for you
What the world needs now
Another broken man
Another loaded hand
What the world demands
Making a bold debut
A dark hero for you

There's a sun that's growing cold
There's a child that's born too old
A metropolis where no one wants to dream
There's an eagle waiting to land
On an outstretched stranger's hand
Come here, let's step off
