I went out walking 
Through streets paved with gold 
Lifted some stones 
Saw the skin and bones 
Of a city without a soul 
I went out walking 
Under an atomic sky 
Where the ground won’t turn 
And the rain it burns 
Like the tears when I said goodbye 

Yeah I went with nothing 
Nothing but the thought of you 
I went wandering 

I went drifting 
Through the capitals of tin 
Where men can’t walk 
Or freely talk 
And sons turn their fathers in 
I stopped outside a church house 
Where the citizens like to sit 
They say they want the kingdom 
But they don’t want God in it
