lyrics

Autumn City
Man was a visionary
On the path of a missionary
Across the sea, to make a name
Over a living bridge
Into the city of smoke and kids
To wear a crown among the flames

When you look into the mirror
Do you see a warm interior?

I’d rather be the king away
Than stay at home and be a slave
I’d rather be the king…

Visions of shot and steel
What he sees cannot be real
With eyes that lie, and words that stray
Green sky, dull sludge
Blue blood, orange mud
The autumn city’s never grey

Running through the streets
Frightened by the folk he meets
With a knife strapped on his hand.
Staring through his back
House to house all burnt to black
Born of flame he’s just a man

Back out across the bridge
Running through the woods he lives
Left the book upon a stone
Words that are not his
Voices call out, they insist
The autumn city’s not your home
