main lyrics
In the spotlight
life is so peachy
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
wouldn't you like to retire
with a million?

A million beating hearts
behind brick and cold steel piping
fighting for the top
fighting for the room to breathe
bench park sleepers lie
cold blanket bedless babies
here this must stop
here I cannot stay

Oh, you big city
black city
rises up around me
steal my soul away
oh, big city
black city
rise and take me over
steal my soul away

But, oh, out in the world
the night it calls
it falls much harder than I recall
out in the world
the sirens call from every corner
they say

[CHORUS]
In the spotlight
life is so peachy
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
unless you're in the spotlight
for a reason
oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
caught for stealing
somebody's riches
no, no, no, no
wouldn't you like to retire
with a million bucks?
yeah


Came here from a small town
see my dreams here in the big city
sour disappointment
here I cannot stay

Oh, you big city
black city
rise and take me over
steal my soul away
oh, big city
black city
rising all around me
steal my soul away

But, oh, out in the world
the night it calls
it falls much harder than I recall
out in the world
the sirens call from every corner
they say

[CHORUS]

Oh, you see, big city
black city
rise and take me over
steal my soul away
oh, big city
black city
rising up around me
steal my soul away

But, oh, out in the world
the night it calls
it falls much harder than I recall
out in the world
the sirens call from every corner
they say

[CHORUS]
yeah
yeah
yeah
