lyrics

A hunter is sitting on a hilltop,
He's waiting for something to pass,
He's siting in the tall grass,
Waiting for an animal.

Gathered his flock to go,
But there was nowhere left to turn.
Even the wild creatures had to learn,
New tricks in the city, man.

And a nomad is no man,
Where there's nowhere to wander anymore.
He moved to the city, where he's got no flock to tend to
And doesn't get chased by lions anymore.

A man is lying in bed with his lover,
In the middle of the afternoon.
They swear they're gonna get up soon,
They're sleeping like animals.

Coursing the veins of the city,
Missing the lions bears and wolves,
Because the predators here are much worse
Than those honest animals.

And a nomad is no man,
Where there's nowhere to wander anymore.
He moved to the city, where he got a decent job,
Selling home insurance, to all the other nomads,
And doesn't get chased by lions anymore.

When you walk under satellites,
There's nowhere on Earth to far,
So turn your eyes to the stars.
