This is the city of the dead

As we lie side by side in dead

I'd do something else instead

It is the city of the dread


But we went out drinking around

You got drunk and fallen down


And I wished I could be like you

With the Soho river drink me down


In the city of the dead
Fall in love and fall in bed
It wasn't anything you said
Except I know we both lie dead

"Don't you know where to cop?"
That's what New York Johnny said
"You should get to know your town
Just like I know mine"

While all the windows stare ahead
And the streets are filled with dread
Every nation in the world
Slinks through the alley after girls

What we wear is dangerous gear
It'll get you picked on anywhere
Though we get beat up we don't care
At least it livens up the air

But someplace we hide inside
All courage gone and paralysed
Sniff that wind, the ugly tension
Today the jerks have got aggression
I said: today the jerks have got aggression

This is the city of the dead
It is the city of the dead
It is the city of the dead
It is the city of the dead
