lyrics

YUPPIE #1:
This is how it feels to have it all:
Money, youth and love
In the greatest city in this world

D:
This is how it feels to have it all:
Power shirts and yellow ties -

GRUB:
And good intentions -

D:
Big ideas -

GRUB:
Forgotten by the end of Happy Hour

CHRIS, YUPPIES, PLACID, JONAH, GORGISSIMA:
Everyone you lost will find you in the city of gold.

YUPPIE #2:
This is how it feels to have it all:
Ten years' real-world time

YUPPIE #3:
No wife, no house, no children

YUPPIES:
Can I go to my high-school reunion like this?

CHRIS, D, GRUB, PLACID, JONAH, GORGISSIMA:
Rising from the basements
Conquering the city
Shining on the rooftops
Conquering the city of gold

D:
The towers rise, the rooftops shine
Lit with eight million flickering lives
And one is mine, one tiny taste
My life to use, or wreck, or waste
And while the best intentions built
This city trimmed in chrome and gilt
The steel and concrete, strong beneath
Are lost from sight and mind and reach

D, GRUB:
The towers rise, the rooftops shine
Lit with eight million flickering lives
And one is mine, one tiny taste
My choice, my life to use or waste
I want to break the chain of days
I want to rise and shine
I want to choose
I want to move
To know just how it feels to have it all

CHRIS, YUPPIES, PLACID, JONAH, GORGISSIMA:
I want to break the chain of days
I want to rise and shine
I want to choose I want to move
I want to rise and shine

D, GRUB:
The moon will rise, the stars will shine
Like Chinese lanterns in the sky
Like Disco balls, like colored gels
Like sparking strobes, like vacant eyes
Like canvas white, see how it shines
I'll paint my life on it tonight
I'll paint it red
I'll paint this town
In blood, in shame, in crimson sundown
Paint it red I'll paint this town
Look up, look up, look up
It's sundown

CHRIS, YUPPIES, PLACID, JONAH, GORGISSIMA:
Falling through the skylight

D:
Twilight in the city of gold.
