The city air is poison
But it tastes so sweet
Blowing through your windows this morning
And the sirens in the distance
And the traffic in the street
To my ear it sounds like music for me

And there's no needle in my arm
But I feel so high
No I won't ever come down
But I'm walking through the sunlight
And it's brokeness that greats me
In the doorways of this ancient town

And roll it over
Roll it under
If I got you by my side
Well the sky may howl
And the city smolder
I don't need nowhere to hide

Foundations are shaking
Woah spirits aching
Midday burning cold until
I picture your face
It starts a roaring in my head
Like the sea inside an empty shell

Everywhere see innocence,
Faith undermined
Everywhere a hunger and flame
And relentless disillusionment
Praying on the mind
'Till oh, the world is tamed

And roll it over
Roll it under
If I got you by my side
And the sky may howl
And the city smolder
I don't need nowhere to hide

Through the melancoly rain
Darkness of the hills
You know how I feel the pain
But you kiss me and I'm healed

Through the baracades of reasons
Forgotten hopes and seasons
We stand before the waking light
Strange as the years grow dark
My soul catch a spark
And now the minutes never burned so bright

Roll it over
Roll it under
If I got you by my side
And the sky may howl
With tons of thunder
I don't need nowhere to hide

And roll it over
Roll it under
If I got you by my side
And the sky may howl
And the city smolder
I don't need nowhere to hide

Its loud and it's clear
I don't need nowhere
