Lyrics

They heard me singing and they told me to stop

Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock

These days my life, I feel it has no purpose

But late at night the feelings swim to the surface

'Cause on the surface the city lights shine

They're calling at me, come and find your kind

Sometimes I wonder if the World's so small

That we can never get away from the sprawl

Living in the sprawl

Dead shopping malls rise

Like mountains beyond mountains

And there's no end in sight

I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights

We rode our bikes to the nearest park

Sat under the swings and kissed in the dark

We shield our eyes from the police lights

We run away, but we don't know why

On the black river, the city lights shine

They're screaming at us, we don't need your kind

Sometimes I wonder if the world's so small

That we can never get away from the sprawl

Living in the sprawl

Dead shopping malls rise

Like mountains beyond mountains

And there's no end in sight

I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights

They heard me singing and they told me to stop

Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock

Sometimes I wonder if the world's so small

Can we ever get away from the sprawl?

Living in the sprawl

Dead shopping malls rise

Like mountains beyond mountains

And there's no end in sight

I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights

I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights
