To the center of the city where all roads meet, waiting for you
To the depths of the ocean where all hopes sank, searching for you
Well, I was moving through the silence without motion, waiting for you
In a room without a window in the corner I found truth

In the shadowplay, acting out your own death, knowing no more
As the assassins all grouped in four lines and dancin' on the floor
And with cold steel, odor on their bodies, made a move to connect
But I could only stare in disbelief as the crowds all left

I did everything, everything I wanted to
I let them use you for their own ends
To the center of the city in the night, waiting for you
To the center of the city in the night, waiting for you

CURTIS, IAN KEVIN / HOOK, PETER / MORRIS, STEPHEN PAUL DAVID / SUMNER, BERNARD
