Lyrics for Children of the City by Mili.

Sleep for a total of 800 hours per day
And then drink a liter of milk, warm up before you go play
Only eat, or write, or pull the trigger with your right hand
Only thing that’s left is to work on following commands
By the time you realize, you’ll be restrained to a desk
And with your dreams on the floor you comply, eyes chained to the test

Going through the shelves, picking out my prewritten persona
Children of the city see only the neon stars
Reflected upon the murky gutter sky
Don’t ask me why I desperately wish to be noticed by the city’s eyes

Do not go home until you finish reading the value of e
