The City of Angels - lyrics

The City of Angels

Words and Music by John W. Vitz

 

 

 

As the sun comes up over the hills to the valley below us,

The hazy new day brings a strange and radiant glow.

As the city is sleeping the war continues to show us

That all in the name of hate, it’s anything goes!

 

What a fright every night

As they die in The City of Angels.

Mayhem and fighting while nobody’s righting the wrong.

 

What a sight through the light

Shining down on The City of Angels.

Everything that’s right and wrong is turned upside down in The City of Angels.

 

Is there nowhere to turn for the safety of innocent people?

And is there no way to take me away from this hell?

Is there no one on Earth who can help the hungry and hateful?

Is nobody angry enough to stand up and yell?    Oh, no!

 

What a fright every night

There is blight in The City of Angels.

Killing and fighting while nobody’s righting the wrong.

 

What a sight through the light

Shining down on The City of Angels.

Races and faces abound; but no one belongs in The City of Angels.
