Lyrics

Two cities on top of each other sleep in the stillness of night
Down in the 2nd Street tunnel lost in a thousand reflecting lights

There was a civilization that built these buildings with pride
They left the city abandoned—who knows how the dream of the future died?

There must be some hope in the future

This is the story of all that was beautiful and true
This is the ending of all that was sleeping inside you
And it's the start of something new

This is the story of all that was beautiful and true
This is the ending of all that was sleeping inside you
And it's the start of something new

Down in the 2nd Street Tunnel a dream of the future appears
There are these voices around me that want to know what I'm doing here
