Heart Of The City

Words and Music by Raccoon

as recorded on Natureís Cathedrals

 

 

Deep in the heart of the city

Where you gotta fight to live each day

I saw an old friend of mine

He bowed 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

Iím 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?

 

Up in the sky you can see the thirteenth tribe

Flying hand in hand with a new law for the land

Up in the sky you can see the thirteenth tribe

Flying hand in hand singing, ďNow we understandĒ

 

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
