Concrete and chaos rise up
Spiderweb across the land
Like a giant rash.
Forests lie down below
Foundations of buildings in a bed of ash.
Some people here got it real good,
''cause the glass towers bring prosperity.
Other people starve in the street
Because concrete knows no sympathy.
Big city, it's a wishing well.
Big city, it's a living hell.
This town, it's fucking insane:
How one will starve and another will gain.
Like a giant mechanical brain,
and the people are cells and the streets are sits there stark, gray and cold.
(Chorus)
And I think I wanna be a brick layer.
So I can put another brick in the wall.
it's sanitary, rational, happy and sane.
Growing like a flower to surround us all.
(Chorus)

Big City x3
Big city, it's a wishing well,
Big city, it's a living hell.

This town, it's fucking insane,
How one will starve and another will gain,
Like a giant mechanical brain,
and the people are cells and the streets are veins,
thinks only of itself,
A thousand limbs crawling as it expands and grows,
And still the concrete sits there,
Sits there stark gray and cold.

(Chorus)

And I think I wanna be a brick layer,
So I can put another brick in the wall,
it's sanitary, rational, happy and sane,
Growing like a flower to surround us all.
(Chorus)
