The Angels City Out of Control

inside the canyons of glass and towering steel
the shadows and the footsteps that never stop to feel
the lights have changed from red to green
and yes i've changed my mind
i pick up the phone and yell at someone
"just get off my line!"

Up on the corner, newsboys daily blues
of love and life and accidents and passing strangers' views.
the valet holds no heroes, "the dealer holds" he said,
sun goes down, the lights come up,
the wheel turns in y'r head
You make connections, you win elections,
That ain't gonna be enough!

'Cause the city is out of control
yeah the city is out of control
it's the city, can't you hear it
Crying-out of control

Running out of time-you know it
Put it on the line-It's loaded
Fear erodes, hate explodes
can't hold back now, take your passions to the streets.
