Donkeyboy – City Boy lyrics

I don't wanna be that city boy,
Running timeless streets again
I don't wanna be that city boy,
Stumbling down the streets, my friend

Underneath my skin there's an eagle
Underneath these clouds there's an ego
Underneath my sin there's an eagle
Underneath this, underneath this...
Underneath my skin there's an eagle
Underneath these clouds there's an ego
Underneath my sin there's an eagle
Underneath these clouds there's an ego

I don't wanna be that city boy,
Stumbling down the streets again
I don't wanna be that city boy,
Running timeless streets, my friend

Underneath my skin there's an eagle
Underneath these clouds there's an ego
Underneath my sin there's an eagle
Underneath this, underneath this...
Underneath my skin there's an eagle

Underneath these clouds there's an ego
Underneath my skin there's an eagle
Underneath these clouds there's an ego

You're moving around and heavenly you move in town
You're moving around and heavenly you move in town
And heavenly you move in town

Underneath my skin there's an eagle
Underneath these clouds there's an ego
Underneath my sin there's an eagle
Underneath these clouds there's an ego

Underneath my skin there's an eagle
You're moving around and heavenly you move in town
Underneath my skin there's an eagle
You're moving around and heavenly you move in town
Moving around
Moving around
You're moving around and heavenly you move in town

I don't wanna be that city boy
I don't wanna be that city boy.

    Underneath my skin is my hidden, true self. A noble predator, soaring high above the world, gaining a bigger picture. In my human form, beneath the clouds, I can understand the mechanics by which reality works and have an ambition to act upon the world. My sin, may be what I take away from the world, or it could simply be my (previous) inability to act.

    In any case, I don't want to be led and a mindless slave to the machine, the city. Their ambition is nothing beyond their mind-numbing routines. A perpetuation of the status quo, and maintenance of their ignorance and their will to not care about anything, be faceless and headless. To be meaningless in their existence. Stumbling, fumbling and sleepwalking their way through life.

    I want change. Movement. And so do you... and damn, you've got game! I'm impressed, maybe even in love. This song is so gay.
