Waltari: City Neurotic

CITY NEUROTIC
/Waltari/

Rolling on a reel
Coiling on a wheel
Time to turn the machine on
Feel the heat, the mind blows on
Mayday makes my day
Dancing in the rain
Rain that melts my dirty skin
Spreads around the medicin

All the common lies
Make me realize
I'm a man of the megatown
A look that kills with a megafrown
You're "radical" and nice
Touch me if I please
Peeping on the noisy drift
I'm back from my daily shift

I'm on my way, I'm making it fast
You might be first, but never the last
This city's calling all night long

Panic in the street
Drifting in the heat
Alone without you
Thinking about you
City neurotic
Measuring the beat
Is it tonight you
The concrete victim of the day?

Struggling like a man
Doing all I can
To fight against the neurosis
Creating gradual dismiss
Filthy like a dog
Digging in a rock
Nails in blood I want to reach
Some time in Malibu beach
This fascinating world
Still acts so absurd
Start to cover for tonight
All the parts that I can hide

I'm on my way, I'm making it fast
You might be first, but never the last
This city's calling all night long

Panic in the street
Drifting in the heat
Alone without you
Thinking about you
City neurotic
Measuring the beat
Is it tonight you
The concrete victim of the day?

Rolling on a reel
Coiling on a wheel
Time to turn the machine on
Feel the heat, the mind blows on
Mayday makes my day
Dancing in the rain
Rain that melts my dirty skin
Spreads around the medicin

All the dirty lies
Make me realize
I'm a man of the megatown
A look that kills with a megafrown
You're radical and nice
Touch me if I please
Peeping on the noisy drift
I'm back from my daily shift

I'm on my way, my heart's beating fast
Days without nights, nerves could never last
This city's calling all night long

Panic in the street
Drifting in the heat
Alone without you
Thinking about you
City neurotic
Measuring the beat
Is it tonight you
Is it tonight you?

Panic in the street
Drifting in the heat
Alone without you
Singing about you
You city neurotic
Taste my bitter sweet
I am tonight you
Your concrete victim of the day!
