Camel – City Life lyrics

Wake-up, wake-up
Signs tell the time
You're wasting.
Wake up
Wake-up, wake-up
Life you will find
Is changing.
O the city life,
Endless confusion.
Hanging on too tight,
To this illusion...
I'm not what I appear to be.
I couldn't take the honesty,
It seemed to be...
Too easy for reality.
O the city life,
What have I come to?
Faces in the night,
Friendly to fool you.
I always try to justify,
The way I am and wonder why
I couldn't be...
The same to you I am to me.
