A thousand cities in the night
Each one waiting for the light
Ten million people plan their day
As the sun still burns away

As the earth just spins in space
People plan their daily race
As the sun still burns away
Few say "thank you for the day"
All the people in their ties
Forget to look up at the sky
They exist another day
As the sun still burns away

I wonder just how long we'll last
When the final die is cast
Every day brings forth the time
When the sun forgets to shine
