Standard bearers match to the tick of the clock 
It's a war against time when you're fronting the flock 
Determined, resolute, defiant and strong 
Noble and savage know they belong 
In the heart of the city 

The battlefield of love a ruffled feathered bed 
From fluid moist lips the benediction's said 
You love them and leave them with yesterday's guilt 
Everything's on schedule in the empire that you built 
In the heart of the city 

You close a deal Thursday at 7:45 
The train home is empty you're the only man alive 
You throw away your clothes in a house of clouds 
The window is sealed the furniture in shrouds 
In the heart of the city
