lyrics

I see the city from my roof
Scrape the sky and pierce the moon
I toss a brick and hit a bottle
I used to have such a fiery soul
Now it's full of cigarette holes
But scars tell better stories

You're just copper underwater
Your hope is just a dream
'Til you mix truth and purity
What a hell of a hangover
You won't find me underground
On the rooftops I'll be found

Well I'll spit on your fuse
Twist you out under my shoe
Yeah go ahead and knock it down, child
It's nothing new
I'll just watch the buildings burn
So wake me up when you've freed the earth
You say I sold my values
Yeah, but you pay for the view

I see the city from my roof
Like a foreign land from a family room
Oh how I once detested its abuse
Now the lights all look like stars
And there's solace from afar
I toss a smoke and watch it tumble
Into the whisper of passing cars

On the rooftops I'll be found
On the rooftops looking down

We've managed to exist for over 13 years in one form or another by kissing nobody's ass and doing everything ourselves, for the most part. No rules! ... more
