lifeblood: songs: lyrics: city of sin


so i've sold my soul
to the man in the white coat and hat
i laid my belongings to waste
and i moved up to cleveland

the city was fearce
a city of trouble and pain
and i soaked up the heat of the street
with the rag that she gave me

lynn lynn
city of sin
she didn't know my mind
from the head of a pin

she had a watch of gold
a heart made of tin
she raised me from the waters
just to push me in

she could push a man
she could drive him to junkfood and gin
bloated and hopeless
with no legs to stand on
he falls

now i walk the streets
the memories kick in my face
i eat in the doorway
lay me down in the halls
(ah)

lynn lynn
city of sin
she didn't know my mind
from the head of a pin

she had a watch of gold
a heart made of tin
she raised me from the waters
just to push me in

(two years in cleveland)
(one in columbus)
(beacon on the highway)
(and i'm still running)

(you can change your name)
(change your address)
(but you can't hide your eyes)
(from the one who loves you)

(can't stop running)
(no)
(no you can't stop running)
(can't stop running)
(when you're twisted)
(turning)
(hiding your eyes)
(from the one)
(who loves you)
(you're no good)
(ah)
(you're no good)
you're no good

hey hey
lynn lynn
city of sin
she didn't know my mind
from the head of a pin

she had a watch of gold
a heart made of tin
she raised me from the waters
just to push me in

(nah nah nah nah nah nah)
(nah nah nah nah nah nah)
(nah)
(nah nah nah nah nah nah)
(nah nah nah nah nah nah)
(nah nah nah nah nah nah)
(nah)
nah nah nah
(nah nah nah nah nah nah)
nah nah nah
(nah nah nah nah nah nah)
nah nah nah
(nah nah nah nah nah nah)
hey hey hey
(nah nah nah)
