Performances (5)

She dreams of the country 
Her eyes go far away 
She wishes for flowers 
He says, "Perhaps in May"

The city always was gray 
The reflections of his eyes 
And she knows he liked it that way 
And that way he shall die, well

She's always known 
There was something more 
There's this hunger in her belly 
Like an instinct 
It tells her that there's something more

This living shouldn't be called living 
Cuz it's really only half a life 
She's a flower that grows despite cement walls 
And she will survive, she will survive

She's a rare breed with violet eyes 
And leafy limbs 
In conversations she looks for cracks 
To dig her roots deep in

And her ways come up like daisies 
She pushes her head to the sun 
She says "I am content here to grow 
Despite the steel frost that consumes everyone"

She's always known 
There was something more 
There's this hunger in her belly 
Like an instinct 
It tells her that there's something more

This living shouldn't be called living 
Cuz it's really only half a life 
She's a flower that grows despite cement walls 
And she will survive, she will survive

In the end these steel cages will consume us 
And like coffins ignorance will take us in and 
Fashion don't mean anything 
Cuz fashion cannot be our friends

And when all else fades away 
And the city falls into its sleep 
We'll still have flesh, blood, bones and our soul to deal with 
So we should dig our roots deep

Always known 
There was something more 
There's this hunger in our belly 
Like an instinct 
It tells us that there's something more

This living shouldn't be called living 
Cuz it's really only half a life 
She's a flower that grows despite cement walls 
And we will survive 
We will survive 
We will survive 
We will survive
