Heart Of The City

Words and Music by Raccoon

as recorded on Loose In The City

 

 

Deep in the heart of the city where you gotta fight to live each day

I saw an old friend of mine bow to his knees and pray

Along came the red-eyed policeman - Sadly he did say,

ďThereís nothing here in the law books that says that you canít stay right hereĒ

And people gathered around him to see if he was well

I'm not the only one who heard him slam the gates to hell

 

From a whisper to a tremble - From a tremble to a roar

Do you think we finally found the keys to heavenís door?

From a whisper to a tremble - From a tremble to a roar

Could you imagine if we had ten million more?

 

Well, up in the sky you can see the thirteenth tribe

Flyin' hand in hand with a new law for the land

Up in the sky you can see the thirteenth tribe

Flyin' hand in hand with a new law for the land

 

Out on the skyline I see a wave

I canít turn my head and run - Iíve got to be brave

Cuz I have the key and I hold the key

Ainít no way that you can take it from me

 

Out on the highway I know my role

Hangin' on to an old street light

And makin' half-dreams whole

 

Iíve had the dreams - I hold them true

Sitting here tryin' to figure out the next thing I should do

Iíve had the dreams and Iíve seen the unseen

Iíve got so much power that Iím busting at the seams
