Hills above the City
Copyright George Papavgeris, August 2007

When you reach the hills above the city
Turn and take a look at what you left behind
From up here now everything is pretty
Distance to ugliness is blind
A better view you'll never find.

From the hills the towerblocks can look so graceful and serene
And the graffiti from up here is less obscene
Even garbage cans are shiny and the parks are sparkling green
Can't see a single face
Can't see the rats, only the race.

When you reach the hills above the city
It's your memories that are the biggest foe
Don't look back with envy but with pity
At all the things that made you go
There's nothing left for you below.
-------------------------------------------------
When you reach the hills above the city
What you see and hear prepare to disbelieve
It's a heartless monster with no pity
A siren calling the nave
False lover trying to deceive

From the hills you cannot see all the injustice and the crime
No way to tell from here the scandals and the slime
And the way folks treat each other has no reason and no rhyme
Greed, selfishness and rage
Lions and tigers in a cage.

When you reach the hills above the city
It's your memories that are the biggest foe
Don't look back with envy but with pity
At all the things that made you go
There's nothing left for you below.
-------------------------------------------------
From the hills you can see further that the city will allow
You see the future and the past, not just the now
And the life you left behind, you can choose to disavow
You're a new person now
Select the furrow you will plough.

When you reach the hills above the city
It's your memories that are the biggest foe
Don't look back with envy but with pity
At all the things that made you go
There's nothing left for you below.
