In The City (Frischmann/Elastica)
Published by EMI Music.
This is the Evening Session version. Other versions: soundtrack.


i'm workin for the doubts in the city
the mind was strong but the body was weak
now the body's there but the mind has snuffed it
i think it's time that somebody stuffed it

on the screen there's a boy with no name
it looks like like you but it's just not the same
yeah you're so damn gone, i can barely see ya
it must be the double at the bbc
oh yeah...

in the city, in the disco
think you're pretty, and the beat goes
it's a shit-hole
you're a hero, you're a freak-oh...

just when i think i'm getting the knack
i see you and have a panic attack
now i'm an acrobat on the channel changer
and it seems i'm out of danger

in the city, in the disco
think you're pretty, and the beat goes
it's a shit-hole
you're a hero, you're a freak-oh...
