Mark Lanegan – Hit The City lyrics


The dark descends through the promised land
Down kingdom come and the acid ban
I'm Babylon burned inside out
Nothing to kill it
I hit the city
In Marianne I dug the hole
And watched her trip on my heart of stone
And in the end of that crawled, was my skin
I couldn't kill it
I hit the city
I hit the city
Ghost arrives at it's bitter end
To the promised land and the dark descents
I'm Babylon, burned inside out
Nothing to kill it
I hit the city (x5)
I hit the city
