The city that never sleeps
24/7 plug in and play
Thousands of techno sheep
entranced in social dance

Neon enclave honeycombs
the mist of liquor never far
The answer to tomorrow’s worries
buried in a stranger’s arms

Standing at the edge of the world
the skyline lays itself bare
Even though all that I see
apparitions of former lovers

What is this sinking emptiness
the loss of innocence or something more
Introspective candy echoing away to void
In my veins a shrill scream that no one hears

As the sun begins to rise
clad in a suit of golden armor
Infinite in its valor
I sink into dawn’s embrace
