lyrics

City of trees
Pleasant little breeze
You almost forget
You're in the middle of a desert

Come for the scene
Stay for the dream
Of settling down
And making jokes about the weather

Shake off invitations
For making new relations
Stupid higher purposes
Means canceling vacations

‘Cause I’m here on business
Not making friends
'Cause I have no interest in your city
No money for your trends

I’m runnin’ low on time
20 years left in my prime
Until my efforts are exceptions
Or I find a new direction

I’ve been stuck in here for hours
In a old shop
Distracting me from work I’ve self-imposed

Pleasure
Is only a distraction
Like a catholic in reservation
But instead of God, it’s an art attraction

Every time I’m taking breaks
Means another bad afterglow
'Cause it was better in the moment
And now I need to go
Go go go

‘Cause I’m here on business
Not making friends
'Cause I have no interest in your city
No money for your trends

I’m runnin’ low on time
20 years left in my prime
Until my efforts are exceptions
Or I find a new direction
