The Camera Eye Songtext
von Rush

The Camera Eye Songtext

Grim-faced and forbidding
Their faces closed tight
an angular mass of New Yorkers
Pacing in rhythm
Race the oncoming night
They chase through the streets of Manhattan
Head-first humanity
Pause at a light
Then flow through the streets of the city
They seem oblivious

To a soft spring rain
Like an English rain
So light, yet endless
From a leaden sky
The buildings are lost

In their limitless rise
My feet catch the pulse
And the purposeful stride
I feel the sense of possibilities


I feel the wrench of hard realities
The focus is sharp in the city
Wide-angle watcher

On life's ancient tales
Steeped in the history of London
Green and grey washes
In a wispy white veil
Mist in the streets of Westminster
Wistful and weathered
The pride still prevails
Alive in the streets of the city
Are they oblivious
To this quality?

A quality of light
Unique to every city's streets.
Pavements may teem
With intense energy
But the city is calm
In this violent sea
I feel the sense of possibilities
I feel the wrench of hard realities
The focus is sharp in the city
