Smoke City

In a place where the stars oh love to hide and the
Smoke gets in your eyes and I
Would like some peace of mind

It’s not too bad being back again in this
Land where it all began and I
Would like some peace of mind

And it’s out of my hands, this twisted land
And they come and claw at me, I won’t ever understand

And there’s not much hope when you’re trained to cope
And you’re raised as part of the Asian burnout machine
And you don’t even see
Either you’re drugged or revoked or you’re always broke
And everyone else is out chasing a dream
And they’re burning as we speak

And it’s out of my hands, this twisted land
And they come and claw at me, I won’t ever understand

Concrete, nicotine, the fear, that drives me
I won’t ever understand

And there’s not much hope when you’re trained to cope
And you’re raised as part of the Asian burnout machine
Either you’re drugged or revoked or you’re always broke
And everyone else is out chasing a dream
And they’re burning as we speak yea

And it’s out of my hands
This twisted land
And they come and claw at me
And they come and claw at me I said
And they come and claw at
I won’t ever understand x3

Everyone is out chasin’ x15
They’re out
