10000 Maniacs – Once A City lyrics
This was once a city harmony a common theme but these complications hallowed buildings scrape the sky now make life a bit uneasy voices ride the airwaves once a city years gone by will I be walking, walking so free? going underground little children hiding, bullets never meant for them will they still be standing in thecenturies ahead must there be such bloodshed in our hearts, our homes, ourheads? this was a city once this was once a city harmony a common theme but these complications once a city, once a dream.
