Yellowcard - City of Devils

Man once sang to me
Look at you saving the world on your own
And I wonder how things gonna be
'Cause the time here it passes so slow
In a city of devils we live
A city of devils we live
Find somebody to learn
Boy you gotta love someone more than yourself
I can feel the fire of the city lights burn
It's hard to find angels in hell

Flying along, and I
Feel like I don't belong and I,
Can't tell right from the wrong, why,
Have I been here so long

In a city of devils we live
A city of devils we live

Questions I can't seem to find
To the answers I already have
And you can't see the sky here at night
So I guess I can't make my way back

Flying along, and I
Feel like I don't belong and I,
Can't tell right from the wrong, why,
Have I been here so long

What if I wanted you here right now
Would you fall in the fire burn me down
If I wanted you here right now
Would you fall in the fire burn me down
If I wanted you here right now...

In a city of devils we live
In a city of devils we live
A city of devils we live
In a city of...

Flying along, and I
Feel like I don't belong and I,
Can't tell right from the wrong, why,
Have I been here so long

I don't belong
Don't belong
I've been here too long
Too long

In this song, Yellowcard expresses their sense of isolation in Los Angeles. Los Angeles, also known as the "City of Angels", To Yellowcard, its quite the contrary, "City of Devils" They express their isolation through the last lines, "I don't belong", "I've been here too long" The entire song is about Ryan feeling towards Los Angeles. It's no secret that he doesn't like it, and vents his frustrations of living in such society. He has trouble making friends there because everyone is so caught up in themselves "Boy you gotta love someone more than yourself...it's hard to find angels...". A very simple message, he could easily just say "I hate Los Angeles" and leave it at that. but Ryan deliver a well-thought out and well-written song telling you why. *note "this page is quoted please submit further information"
