City Blues


A city of virgins , a city of gold
A city of lies where the truths never told
A city of jokers, a city of doubt
A city of loneliness where there is no crowd
A city of harlots , a city of  fire
A city of houses made out of cards
A city of the mountains and the valley below
A city of young , a city of old
A city of the blind , a city of the lame
A city for the beggar without a name
A city for the outcast, a city for the fool
A city by the sea , a city with no rules
A city of the homeless , a city for the coward
A city of death , a city of flowers
A city of the heathen and the leaper too
A city for me, a city for you
A city of thistles , a city with a crown
A city square , a city round
A city of darkness , a city of light
A city of peace , a city of fight
A city for the seller , a city for the buyer
A city of kings and the servant for hire
A city of dirt , a city of graves
A city of free  , a city of slaves
A city of beat , a city of stone
A city of word , a city of bone
A city of silence , a city of sound
A city of keys where the chained are unbound
A city of laughter , a city of screams
A city of truth , a city of dreams
A city of stairs , a city of falls
A city of blues , a city of walls
A city of dogs, a city of soldiers
A city of doctors , a city of murders
A city of promise , a city of the insane
A city of the alchemist , a city of pain
A city of angels , a city of sin
What kinda city you gonna live in ?
