Twilight Of A Champion Lyrics - The The
The rising moon faces the sickening sun,
as the lights in the tower blocks go on, one by one,
A big shot, overlooking this black iron skyline--
Surrounded by his symbols of prosperity--
Sits back in his new leather chair
ripped off the back of some unfortunate beast.
I'm smiling through my teeth.
Anybody can be a millionaire,
so everybody's gotta try
but by the laws of this human jungle
only the heartless will survive.
& down there--but for the grace of god
The smoke & the steam,
& the broken down dreams,
the hope, & the hunger,
frustration & anger,
the little drunken lives,--
drivin' through the traffic lights
& away from who they are!
But I've been thinking of you--
In this great city of great solitude.
Crossin' the central reservation, of my imagination,
Searchin' for the world I ... left behind.
A shadow hunting shadows of childhood life.
It's all I want--& all I miss--
But how can I return
to a place that don't exist?
from Mombasa to Miami, Beirut to Bangladesh,
I've flown around the world standing
on the wing of a jet.
Tryin' to salvage my emotions
from the bottom of the oceans--
Y'see I sold my soul, to pay for my dinner.
My stomach grew fatter, but my heart grew thinner,
I ain't foolin' I'm fallin',
I wasn't wicked, just weak,
I ain't lyin' I'm dyin',
Crippled by deceit--
Oh the hand that wrote the agony
has just begun--
Will be the hand that pulls the trigger
--of this gun!!!
