Chorus

FLiving in the Csprawl FDead shopping Cmalls rise like Fmountains beyond Cmountains C B And there's Amno end in sight I need the darkness, someone Fplease cut the Clights CWe rode our bikes to the nearest Ampark Sat under the swings and Fkissed in the Cdark We shield our eyes from the police Amlights We run away, but we Fdon't know Cwhy On the black river, the city lights Amshine They're screaming at us, we don't Fneed your Ckind Sometimes I wonder if the world's so Amsmall That we can never get aFway from the Csprawl
