    The rising moon faces the sickening sun,
    as the lights in the tower blocks go on, one by one,
    A big shot, overlooking this black iron skyline--
    Surrounded by his symbols of prosperity--
    Sits back in his new leather chair
    ripped off the back of some unfortunate beast.
    I'm smiling through my teeth.
    Anybody can be a millionaire,
    so everybody's gotta try
    but by the laws of this human jungle
    only the heartless will survive.
    & down there--but for the grace of god
    --go I.

    The smoke & the steam, & the broken down dreams,
    the hope, & the hunger, frustration & anger,
    the little drunken lives,--
    driven' through the traffic lights
    & away from who they are!

    But I've been thinking of you--
    In this great city of great solitude.

    Crossin' the central reservation, of my imagination,
    Searchin' for the world I...left behind.
    A shadow hunting shadows of childhood life.
    It's all I want--& all I miss--
    but how can I return, to a place that don't exist!!

    from Mombosa to Miami, Beiruit to Bangladesh,
    I've flown around the world standing
    on the wing of a jet.
    tryin' to salvage my emotions
    from the bottom of the oceans--

    Y'see I sold my soul, to pay for my dinner.
    My stomach grew fatter, but my heart grew thinner,
    I ain't foolin' I'm fallin', I wasn't wicked, just weak,
    I ain't lyin' I'm dyin', crippled by deceit--

    Oh the hand that wrote the agony
    has just begun--
    Will be the hand that pulls the trigger
    --of this gun!!!
