Hello city

Another night at the palace 'cause there is nothing else to do
The same people, the same drinks
And the same music, the same quicksand
I think this harbor town is waist deep and sinking fast

Hello city, you've found an enemy in me
Hello city, hello city

Second night at the warehouse and my mock turtleneck just reeks
From the liquor room to the change room
To the doom and gloom of the hotel room
I think this seaside beer hall would sink into the Bay

Hello city, you've found an enemy in me
Hello city, hello city

Maybe I caught you at a bad time
Maybe I should call you back next week
Maybe half the fault was mine that
The sun didn't shine on Barrington Street

It's 3 O'clock in the morning and I'm hungry so let's eat
Climb down three flights to the streetlights
And the bar-fights, we're just taking in the sights
I hope tomorrow that I wake up in my own bed

Hello city, you've found an enemy in me
Hello city, hello city

What a good place to be don't believe them
'Cause they speak a different language
And it's never been happy for me
It's happy hour again

Hello city, hello city
