You were a city and your height was great
You fed the masses with good things
They raised you up and they saw you tower
They raised you up and they saw you flower

You were a carnival parade
All the pretty things you made
You showed them off amongst your brothers
Your kaleidoscope of every colour

But as you watch your whole kingdom fall
The sky slips under and down
The dust falls, crushing the sound
And that sound is all that is left of your city

You were the voice of the magazine
The screaming pages in your dirty streets
They raised you up and they saw you tower
They raised you up and they saw you flower

The subway walls held your disguise
In the hazy morning hours you climbed
The coats of tired men asleep
On the dusty corners of concrete
