A City Bleak (song lyrics)

grey concrete blocks
and black paved paths
in a lifeless city
the devil laughs

grey suits shuffle
like ants in lines
walk and pause
switch, cross, align

a young girl hops
in a sundress red
she hums and twirls
and sways her head
the young girl loves
she’s warmth and free
shines in colours
the grey can’t see

sun shines bright
on trees of grey
their crowns in gold
cast a sleepy shade

screens all sizes
the only light
that reaches eyes
absorbing sight

numbed by numbers
screens and graphs
measure all but
the devil’s laughs

in this city grey
lives dead and bleak
everyone lost track
of what they seek
