lyrics

HERE BE DRAGONS

there’s a city growing up in my head
and I see it every night in my dreams
first was a street, now it’s a whole republic
with busy bees and CCTV

there’s a city growing up in my head
fires burning, sirens wailing
people lonely, streetgirls comforting
silly drinking, fireworks raining

there’s a city growing up in my head
zombies commuting, children laughing
bagmen waiting, methheads salivating
school bells ringing, jail cells closing

cement cracking, grass and weeds growing
buildings rising, people are falling
there’s a city growing up in my head

night stars are fading, the streetlights are winning
cars speeding and then stopping, the street ballet’s playing

there’s a hobo in the park
with a sign that says
“keep your coins, I want change”

there’s this guy playing a Dylan song
on his guitar on the corner
50 year old words that still ring true today

“come mothers and fathers throughout the land and don't criticize what you can't understand, your sons and your daughters are beyond your command”

there are friends street dancing at the station
like there’s no tomorrow
so I guess there’s some hope for the future, you know

there’s this vandal genius
taking the walls of the city back
one brick at a time, one fucking brick at a time

where’s the city growing up my head?
can’t find the city growing up in my head
I drive for hours, in search of the city in my head
can’t find the city growing up in my head

and here be dragons
the ones you know

and here be dragons
that will swallow you whole

and here be dragons
the ones you love/loathe

and here be dragons
that will swallow you whole

Here. Be. Dragons.
