lyrics

Rock City is a graveyard. I ain’t ever going back to that place again…

I’ll do it. It’s true. I’ll never do it too.

Don’t open your mail. Don’t answer your phone. Don’t go back to your former home.
Don’t you miss your friends. Don’t you cry or moan. Don’t go back there – just leave it alone.
Don’t open your mail. Don’t answer your phone. Don’t go back to your former home.
Don’t you miss your friends. Don’t go back there. Don’t go back there…

Rock City is a graveyard. I ain’t ever going back to that place again…

I’ll do it. It’s true. I’ll never do it too.

I don’t miss my friends. That place is dead. I’m gonna stay somewhere that’s nice instead.
I like it here. The air is fresh. They’ve got lots of bones and they’re nice and red.
You can come with me if you’re not upset. We’ll build a house. We’ll get real set.
Build ourselves a home that’s white and green. Gonna stay in Rome where the air is clean.
I don’t miss my friends. That place is dead. I’m gonna move somewhere that’s nice instead.
I like it here. The air is fresh. They’ve got lots of bones and they’re nice and red.
You can come with me if you’re not upset. We’ll build a house. We’ll get real set.
Gonna stay in Rome…

You might say this song is not a real rock song – it’s not the rhythm.
But don’t worry about the genre. It’s not the language that’s the problem.
I’ve got a keyboard and some thoughts. I’m gonna sing them the way I ought to.
I’ve got meaning. I’m gonna use it. I’ve got feelings. I am a human.

I’ve got a feeling I am a human. I’ve got a feeling I am a human.
I’ve got feelings; I am a human. I’ve got feelings; I am a human.
I’ve got a feeling I am a human. I’ve got a feeling I am a human.
I’ve got a meaning; I’m gonna use it. I’ve got a feeling I am a human.
