I live in a city called Despair
Breathe her polluted air.
She aint got no love to spare
Or no sunshine she can share….

I seen the stars fall from the sky
Didn’t even wonder why
It all seemed so cut and dry
I would just spread my wings and fly….

I live in a city called Despair
Got me tearing out my hair…
Hiding in a tigers’ lair
In a city called Despair.

I heard the thunder in the east…saw
The flashin’ eyes of the beast…
Drank with The killers and the cheats
Sank my teeth into The feast….
I saw the vision in the road
Felt my inner world implode….
Until across the stage he strode
And took a little of my load…

I’m Dyin’ in a city called Despair
Lyin cold …in the city square
And the people just don’t care
‘Cos they’re all goin’ nowhere….

The opening guitars set the tone of the song well. I might have brought the vocal further forward in the mix - the imagery of the song shouldn't get lost (it's fine in the softer sections, though, so I can see the issues about where to place it). Love that guitar solo around 2:35 and again at 4:10. I like the light and shade you get in the arrangement. Excellent work, Dennis!

Some quality lyrics here, Dennis. Fine, atmospheric song. The various guitar tones work very well together and the lead breaks are mightily good. Thanks for this. Regards, Peter.
