Latin Quarter - Long Pig

Liedtexte

We made Contention City
On the last night of a storm
Searching for the truth that money brings
We found lodging in the shadows
But they didn't promise rest
As hope sank to the floor on weary wings

We walked on glided splinters
As we scuffed the street for work
And we got by on the mission's cheaper brand
Til our dreams were filled with waking
And our hands with engine parts
As our hearts decayed like debris in the sand

They can't tear your face from my mind
They can't tear your face from my mind
They can't tear your face from my mind
Not even with eternity to try

My home's contention city
Where the master's minds are fixed
On thinking of the money they can save
Like a cat-walk without guard rails
That sent you into space,
I felt like firing shots above your grave

They can't tear your face from my mind
They can't tear your face from my mind
They can't tear your face from my mind
Not even with eternity to try

The city limits are another kind of the town
The lambs are starving and the horses all gone down
The track where even truth gave up the ghost

Not for all the tears in China
Not for all the useless gold
All the nights we ached for heat
And made a virtue of the cold
All the faces blurred by needing
All the stairs we couldn't climb
I won't lose your name or face
There's no rope as long as time

Lied Erklärungen

Bei ihrer Suche nach Arbeit werden die Jugendlichen von den groben Städten angezogen. Feindlich und gleichgültig verschlingt die Stadt die Unvorsichtigen.
