about

Inspired by John's father's painting, The City at Night.

lyrics

The city at night
It's so hard to fight
The city is so wise
But still she just cries

I run to the farmer's earth
I'm one with thee
I run to my mother's skirt
I run to

The city at night
It's so hard to fight
The city is so wise
But still she just cries

I run to the master's berth
Land of the free
I give all that I am worth
I'm on my knees

I run to the father's earth
I'm one with thee
I run to another skirt
I run to the city
