Lea Thompson & Thomas Dolby – Hunger City lyrics

Stay home, city boy
With that television
Warm synthetic light
Keep your mind off real life
Oh, stick to television

I can make it here in hunger city
Nothings gonna stop me
I know I'll survive
I can take it here in hunger city
Even though they'll eat me
Just to stay alive
Hunger city

So the day folds into night
And you slide down in your easy chair
Blue cosmetic lights
Beamed to you by satellite
Call you to the shelter

I can make it here in hunger city
Nothings gonna stop me
I know I'll survive
I can take it here in hunger city
Even though they'll eat me
Just to stay alive
Hunger city

Solo

I can make it here in hunger city
Even though they'll eat me
Just to stay alive
Hunger city

Like a poison lullabye
Pump pump pump inside your head
Momma's pride and joy
Ha, slithers down the drain instead
Fast food for the mutants

I can make it here in hunger city
Nothings gonna stop me
I know I'll survive
I can take it here in hunger city
Even though they'll eat me
Just to stay alive
Hunger city
In hunger city
Hunger city
