lyrics

Honey hides the grey walls
Oh, the sweet seduction, it pulls you in
And all around you
Walk with your ball and chains behind you

Alien city blues
Sky full of silver lies, it’s a pristine bruise
You walk in worn shoes
Oh, this city got you too

All the riches and rags
All the world’s regrets
In one city
All the sin and grace
All gathered in this place
This city
Paradise (Oh, you thought you had to be there)
It’s paradise (Oh, you thought you had to be there)
We’re told
Paradise (Oh, you thought you had to be there)
It’s paradise (Oh, you thought you had to be there)
We’re sold

Money fills the cradles
Caught you with temptation, it pulled you in
And now the new born
Carry the hope and blame, it binds you

Sunday evening news
Life rusts the golden prize, you’re the system’s muse
You lit the last fuse
Now you’re a victim too

All the riches and rags
All the world’s regrets
In one city
All the sin and grace
All gathered in this place
This city
Paradise (Oh, you thought you had to be there)
It’s paradise (Oh, you thought you had to be there)
We’re told
Paradise (Oh, you thought you had to be there)
It’s paradise (Oh, you thought you had to be there)
Mis-sold

Round the corner from this place called hell
They’re not drinking from a poisoned well
