作詞 : CHAPMAN, TRACY

Songs Title:subcity

People say it doesnt exist

 

Cause no one would like to admit

 

That there is a city underground

 

Where people live everyday

 

Off the waste and decay

 

Off the discards of their fellow man

 

Here in subcity life is hard

 

We cant receive any government relief

Id like to please give mr president my honest regards

For disregarding me

 

They say theres too much crime in these city streets

My sentiments exactly

Government and big business hold the purse strings

When I worked I worked in the factories

Im at the mercy of the world

 

I guess Im lucky to be alive

 

They say weve fallen through the cracks

They say the system works

But we wont let it

Help

I guess they never stop to think

We might not just want handouts

But a way to make an honest living

 

Living this aint living

 

What did I do deserve this

 

Had my trust in god

 

Worked everyday of my life

Thought I had some guarantees

Thats what I thought

 

At least thats what I thought

 

Last night I had another restless sleep

 

Wondering what tomorrow might bring

Last night I dreamed

A cold blue light was shining down on me

I screamed myself awake

Thought I must be dying

Thought I must be dying
