Ashes 03:49
one by one they marched along innocent, without doubt scarlet rings, fathers bury sons a great miasma fallout the city burns down the city's burning down and so they march in two by two through charcoal streets and black towns ash clouds frame the amber hue a mother and child cry out the city burns down the city burns down the city's burning down one by one we all fall down this city's burning down

An Apology 06:09
now there's nothing that I can say to clear the damage away and there's nothing that I can undo to bring us back from the wall nothing more will ever repay nothing more will make you stay you see I only had eyes for myself consumed with targets and plans and I wanted you to fall in line with how I thought it should be now there's nothing I wouldn't change now I’ve only got myself to blame but it's too little too late no second chances remain it's always the same What will it take, what will it take to make me see clear? You know the truth is, i don't know any other way

Relics 05:32
we were riding high all desires were in supply before it stopped everything came our way get the job, the house, the wife get connected and set up for life before it stopped nothing got away now there's a chill vultures circling the kill before too long nothing matters there was nothing you could say nothing i could do to change my ways before long i knew you'd punish my mistakes now you’re lying on the slab the life torn from your eyes long lost friend my long lost friend long lost friend what could I do? (you, why you) long lost friend my long lost friend long lost friend nothing really changed

even though i feel fine, i know it's eating me inside a silent stalking enemy cellular ranks drawing their malignant battle lines send in the chemical blitzkrieg should i fight or run away? should i fight or run away? caught in a crimson crossfire, as blood cell bullets whistle by telegrams of sympathy prison time is slow time, hooked to a chain of drip feed lines a bloody victorious defeat should i fight or run away? should i fight or run away? should i fight or run away? what will be will be anyway should i fight or run away? i'm not alone, no i'm not alone, no i'm not alone together, together, together, together

if i.... i'm important? then why... does this feel like a cage? i used to dream of flying, dream of floating away i used to dream of flying, up and out these chains but something changed... a sigh.... of resignation and lies... installed as faith i used to dream I was flying, thought we could float away i used to dream of flying, that there would be escape... but something changed...

mother what's become of my heart? father what's become of your heart? here we are, we're falling downwards... so far lover what's become of who we are? there's no way in, there's no way out there's no way in, there's no way out stuck in a bell jar the truth is often further than it seems there's no way up, there's no way down there's no way up, there's no way down stuck in a bell jar the truth is often further than it seems denials and grand delusions fake smiles and mass illusions stuck in a bell jar the truth is often further than it seems revile in sick seclusion at mock trials and feigned confusion stuck in a bell jar the truth is often further than it seems the wolves they're clawing at the door with tongues sharp like a knife an eye for an eye just makes us all go blind out of sight is out of mind if all feels lost and there's nothing you can do i'll be right there, know i can be your guide cos even if they're coming after you don't be afraid, know i am on your side The higher we rise the further we fall, we fall if all feels lost and there's nothing you can do i'll be right there, know i can be your guide cos even if they're coming after you don't be afraid, know i am on your side calm... the nightmare's passed away calm... the beast in slumber lays calm... the nightmare's passed away calm... the beast in slumber lays calm... the night has passed, awake my child tomorrow is another day, another day

about

We Keep The City Running London, UK

We Keep The City Running were a post/indie band from London, UK. Their sound lay somewhere between the soaring, tremolo- driven textures of instrumental rock, the rich sonic wash of early 90s guitar bands and a densely layered wall of sound.

After parting ways in early 2016, all members of the band are now involved in new projects.
