Lyrics: Electric Eyes

Fat city, big money, time to stay awhile.

Look up at the skyline; buildings reach for the stars.

From office blocks, apartments and high rise, people emerge –

This is where the rhythm of the soul meets the rhythm of the street.

 

I jump like a sinner when it calls out my name,

Heart beats blood pounds.

I jump like a sinner when it calls out my name,

Heart beats blood pounds.

It’s heartbeat it’s the rhythm of the soul,

It’s how I feel.

 

Electric eyes light up the skies.

Electric eyes shine so bright,

In the darkness of the night.

 

Dirt and heat, sound and lights, the heart of the city’s alive.

Dreams rise; in neon glow from concrete beds and tarmac sheets.

No-one sleep, no-one go home, everyone stay out tonight. Fear runs deep,

This is where the rhythm of the soul feels the hardness of the street.

 

I jump like a sinner when it calls out my name,

Heart beats blood pounds.

I jump like a sinner when it calls out my name,

Heart beats blood pounds.

It’s heartbeat it’s the rhythm of the soul,

It’s how I feel.

 

Electric eyes light up the skies.

Electric eyes shine so bright.

 

Electric eyes burst out of their sockets, shoot like rockets out of the head.

Yeah rockets fly out of this world and satellites circle in space,

Orbiting around the planets and the moons and the burning stars,

Beaming down information for science and religion.

It’s the closest to heaven that we’ll ever get.

Satellites, satellites, satellites, satellites.
