Lyrics

A night so dark yet still young
And before growing grey and old
Though the evening had just begun
A new morning to be unfold
Now ain't that promising

The sun had been trying for days
To scorch the ugliness beneath
Now being absorbed by a black haze
Needless to say she didn't succeed
How disappointing

The face of a city
Never looks pretty
Some say it's a pity
The face of a city

A failed experiment blew the moon out of the sky
Now hopeless romantics use a candle or a torch to cry
Cry cry cry

While the worms have disappeared
Men full of cancer, the eyes burned
In the blinding x-rays they peered
Without any strength now returned
Into their filthy holes

The owls roar their ugly head
Hey, they only come out at night
The moles are buried alive instead
They stay too short to see the light
Those poor lost souls

The face of a city
Never looks pretty
Some say it's a pity
The face of a city

Trains, plains and cars
Silence seems so sparse
Music, dogs and a door
Can't take it anymore
No more
No more
No more
No more

The face of a city
Never looks pretty
Some say it's a pity
The face of a city
