Imagine the Skyscrapers were Mountains

Imagine the skyscrapers were mountains,

If only the roads were rivers,

the people could be trees,

the pavements fields of green,

the lampposts flowers,

the cars and trains could be boats on the sea,

We could be free,

From the constants of humanity, 

From what we’ve imposed upon ourselves.

I’m living in the city,

the city never sleeps,

they say the city is alive,

i’ll have to disagree,

And look at things from a different side,

the city is dead inside,

at least for me.

Go do your nine to five,

Maybe you’re working overtime,

Go home for your glass of wine,

Go out for your power walk tonight,

Go for drinks at the weekends with your friends,

Look at you and your typical lives.

Oh I’m living in a city,

A place were people strive for money,

Where people strive for promotion,

Where people strive for success,

But their measurement of success is different to mine.

Careers are a 21st century invention,

I seek adventure,

I seek knowledge & skills,

I seek freedom and creativity,

But no one truly wants freedom.

There’s security in the constraints of society,

Which is why we conform.

But Imagine the skyscrapers were mountains,

If only the roads were rivers,

the people could be trees,

the pavements fields of green,

the lampposts flowers,

the cars and trains could be boats on the sea,

We could be free,

From the constants of humanity,

From what we’ve imposed upon ourselves.

Oh I’m living in the city,

the city never sleeps,

they say the city is alive,

i’ll have to disagree,

And look at things from a different side,

the city is dead inside,

at least for me.
