This is the city where men are mended,
This is the place at the end of the world,
This is the home of the dead and the dying,
This is the land of the laden soul.

This is the city where men are mended

This is the city where men are mended.
This is the place, at the end of the world.
This is the home of the dead and the dying.
This is the land of the laden soul.

This is the city where men are mended;
Here is the man with the broken soul.
They tore it from him and tossed it back,
Like a toy to be broken, beaten and hit.

Here is the country lost forever.
This is the place at the end of the world.
Here is the dark, the grey and the black.
Here is the land where you'll never go back.

Here are the men who lived in the gutters;
Here are the Nazis who killed all the Jews.
This is the home of the dead and the dying.
Here is the man that fell from the moon.

He had it all in his home in the mountains.
Yet he gave it up for one moment of truth.
Now he knows of the perils of others;
This is the land of the laden soul.

This is the city where men are mended.
This is the place, at the end of the world.
This is the home of the dead and the dying.
This is the land of the laden soul.
