In this city the lights dim
Casting an odd glow on life
This city hides the vast truth
Clouding it with lies
This city brings shadows to the walls
Destroying the path of greatness
And murdering desire
In this city truth is a state of mind
And hope a day dream on
A summer's eve
This city is not wished for
But always known
Enter this city when
Your nightmares take coarse
