cities of endless darkness
cities of needless days
cities of beautiful nothingness
cities of careless ways
exist in the shadows of every day
are seen by the people in wasted decay
exist in the shadows right under your feet
are seen by nobody whoever you meet

cities of careful wonders
cities of needful dreams
cities of peaceless thunders
cities of wasteful streams
exist when you ponder the truths of today
are seen when your best friends have just gone away
exist when your life has come to an end
are seen when your best friends are just not at hand

cities of imagination
cities of endless youth
cities of deliberation
cities of needless truth
