Dark City

dark city

Somewhere on the outskirts of obscurity
Not far from the dark side of the road
There’s a town that never shows no mercy
It don’t glitter and it ain’t got no gold

It ain’t no place for heroes babe
And it sure ain’t no place for saints
Fools rush out to this lonely village
Where weak of flesh falls and faints

Because in this land of the unforgiving
On life they don’t never put no price
But for the cost of a soulless promise
You get your chance to throw the dice

Dark city let me go
Set my spirit free
Dark city go away
Keep your bad away from me
Dark city you own my soul
Never gonna let me be
Dark city let me go
Gonna be the death of me

Some get lucky and some just get dead
Neither sure ain’t worth riskin’ your soul
If you stay hangin’ round this vacant city
Guarantee you its gonna take a toll

This dark town it ain’t got no heart
I know cause I done looked around
Been a life an a half and I’m still here
Won’t get out till I’m under the ground

I seen men come and I seen them go
That’s what this dark city’s all about
If you stay more than just the day
Sure you’ll never be getting’ out

Dark city let me go
Set my spirit free
Dark city go away
Keep your bad away from me
Dark city you own my soul
Never gonna let me be
Dark city let me go
Gonna be the death of me
