City of the Dead (The Clash)

this is the city of the dead as we lie side by side in bed i'd do something else instead but it is the city of the dead we went out kickin' around but you got drunk an' fallen down an' i wished i could be like you with the soho river drinking me down in the city of the dead fall in love an' fall in bed it wasn't anything you said except i know we both lie dead don't you know where to cop that's what new york johnny said * * * * you should get to know your town just like i know mine while all the windows stare ahead an' the streets are filled with dread every nation in the world slinks through the alley after girls what we wear is dangerous gear it'll get you picked on anywhere though we get beat up we don't care at least it livens up the air but somedays we hide inside all courage gone and paralysed sniff that wind of ugly tension today the jerks have got aggression it is the city of the dead [*Johnny Thunders]
