Skyclad - Cardboard City Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Hands locked in darkness - a nocturnal greeting
  • We flutter like moths round the brazier's flame
  • Shrouded in shadow - our clandestine meeting
  • Here where past and present are one and the same.
  • No-one dies in Cardboard City
  • Faces only fade away
  • Eat your pride and take their pity
  • Fight to live another day.
  • And did those feet in ancient times
  • Walk bare upon these lonely streets like mine?
  • Does God watch us from that penthouse high above
  • His children down below who live on air and love?
  • Wrapped in old headlines beneath this shop awning
  • I shiver in silence and wait for the morning.
  • No-one cries in Cardboard City
  • That would be a waste of tears
  • Eat your pride and take their pity
  • Like you have so many years.
  • Youth of our nation - A lost generation
  • Like lepers we march to the chimes of Big Ben.
  • Exiled and rejected by powers elected
  • Our cries from the gutter don't reach number ten.
  • Give us this day our daily bread
  • Before the headlines read "bring out your dead."
  • Chip-wrapper flowers are blown onto this cardboard grave
  • My spray paint epitaph upon the wall it says...
  • "Here lies the bones of some poor homeless vagrant
  • He died as he lived, in the shit on the pavement."
  • No-one dies in Cardboard City
  • Faces only fade away
  • Eat your pride and take their pity
  • Fight to live another day.
  • No-one cries in Cardboard City
  • That would be a waste of tears
  • Eat your pride and take their pity
  • Like you have so many years
