You went away
Why did you leave me
You know I believed you
Nothing explained
Where are the answers
I know I need you

Tell me
Is your city paved with gold
Is there hunger
Do your people grow old
Do your governments
Have secrets that they've sold

Every night I wait
Take me away
To your floating city
By my window at night
I see the lights
To your floating city
Come and take me away
I want to play in your
Floating city yeah
Floating city yeah

T.V. turns off
Any of us that
Say that we've seen you
Tell me are we
The only planet
That can't conceive you

Will we be like Atlantis
Long ago
So assured that we're advanced
With what we know
That our spirit
Never had time to grow

Every night I wait
Take me away
To your floating city
By my window at night
I see the lights
To your floating city
Come and take me away
I want to play in your
Floating city yeah
Floating city yeah

Is it weak to look for
Saviors out in space
Little earth she tries so hard
To change our ways
Sometimes she must get sick
Of this place

Every night I wait
Take me away
To your floating city
By my window at night
I see the lights
To your floating city
Come and take me away
I want to play in your
Floating city yeah
Floating city yeah
