Marc Almond – Hell Was A City lyrics

Found me out drunk and abandoned
All my horizons in flame
Crying tell all my friends to forget me
Cause Ill never see them again

Oh go tell them all to forget me
Theres no love left in me for them
Something is stirring deep inside of me
And Ill never see them again

How long do you think that youre going to lick
All of the boots that kick you?
Youve had your face in the dirt for too long
Sweet revenge long overdue

Oh go tell them all to forget me
Theres no love left in me for them
Something is stirring deep inside of me
And Ill never see them again

I looked at the manhattan skyline
The bitterest tears in my eyes
A big ball of slime in the cesspool of life
Under an open sore sky

Oh go tell them all to forget me
Theres no love left in me for them
Something is stirring deep inside of me
And Ill never see them again

It took me all this time to realise
That hell was a city on earth
And jesus died for me to despise
The pitiful waste of his birth

I craved for the filth of the city
Gold pathway of dreams from my heart
But acid of misery ate up the gold
And sent me right back to the start

Oh go tell them all to forget me
Theres no love left in me for them
Something is stirring deep inside of me
And Ill never see them again
