THE HUMAN LEAGUE - LYRICS

 

SIN CITY

(Oakey)

Sin city aah, sin city aah, sin city ahh
Sin city aah, sin city aah, sin city ahh
Where did it go wrong ?
What happened here ?
In a town without pity
Paralysed by our fear
Confidence at a standstill
Daylight only a smear
Tension that you could handle
Chokes the thick atmosphere
No more slogans to shout
No more visions to sell
Just a ghost from the past
Of the urge to rebel
Like an etching of death
Knocking at the front door
Will the forces of peace
Overcome ever more
Sin city aah, sin city aah, sin city ahh
Sin city aah, sin city aah, sin city ahh
Did we fail in a past life ?
Do we have to be hurt ?
By contempt for the humdrum ?
Hungry still to subvert
Do we seek the horizon ?
Struggle on to be heard ?
Standing up to be counted ?
With our principles blurred ?
Just too jaded to beg
Passion left in the past
Is it time to move on ?
To surrender at last
Must we really fight on
When we don't give a damn ?
Is it time for release ?
For an end to this sham
Sin city aah, sin city aah, sin city ahh
Sin city aah, sin city aah, sin city ahh
Sin city aah, sin city aah, sin city ahh
Sin city aah, sin city aah, sin city ahh
Sin city aah, sin city aah, sin city ahh
Sin city aah, sin city aah, sin city ahh
Sin city aah, sin city aah, sin city ahh
Sin city aah, sin city aah, sin city ahh
