Sprawling on the fringes of the city
In geometric order
An insulated border
In-between the bright lights
And the far, unlit unknown
 Growing up, it all seems so one-sided Opinions all provided The future pre-decided Detached and subdivided In the mass-production zone
 Nowhere is the dreamer Or the misfit so alone  Subdivisions In the high school halls
In the shopping malls Conform or be cast out Subdivisions In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out
Any escape might help to smooth The unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms to soothe The restless dreams of youth  Drawn like moths, we drift into the city
The timeless old attraction Cruising for the action Lit up like a firefly Just to feel the living night

Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere To relax their restless flight
 Somewhere out of a memory Of lighted streets on quiet nights
