Metropolis



The smile of dawn Arrived early May She carried a gift from her home The night shed a tear To tell her of fear And of sorrow and pain She'll never outgrow
Death is the first dance, eternal
There's no more freedom The both of you will be confined To this mind
I was told there's a miracle For each day that I try I was told there's a new love that's born For each one that has died I was told there'd be no one to call on When I feel alone and afraid I was told if you dream of the next world You'll find yourself Swimming in a lake of fire
As a child I thought I could live without pain Without sorrow But as a man I've found it's all caught up with me I'm asleep yet I'm so afraid
Somewhere, like a scene from a memory (scene from a memory) There's a picture worth a thousand words (thousand words) Eluding stares from faces before me (faces before me) It hides away and will never be heard of again Deceit is the second without end
The city's cold blood teaches us to survive Just keep my heart in your eyes and we'll stay alive The third arrives...

Before the leaves have fallen Before we lock the doors There must be the third and last dance This one will last forever Metropolis watches and thoughtfully smiles She's taken you to your home
It can only take place When the struggle between Our children has ended Now the Miracle and the Sleeper know That the third is love Love is the Dance of Eternity
