lyrics

I don't recall how did I get up here
I've never been on a building so close to the moon
The city's heartthrob echoes from far below
An orchestra of engines
And human cries

RIFF

At three AM I realize I don't know much about life
Night's a kingdom with a king in disguise
Bums and hookers and Godforsaken tramps
They all kneel to his rule till the night ends

As I walk inside I see a girl that cries
Another one pays me a wicked smile
Teenagers, CEO's, friends and foes
They all look alike
Under this sick pale light

RIFF

Colors fade to black and white
Here comes the king of the night
With blackened teeth and a pale face
He leads me through narrow ways
Yesmen dancing high on coke
Junkies fighting over dope
It don't matter to his majesty
We're just cogs in his machine
