A place for all kinds of visitors.
In downtown, middles turn square, streets bend then end
Out of sight, day begins to climb the mountain sky
With a glow light lost on the fading fog on the horizon
Less incognito, glass panes fill up with peoples forms
Silhouetted on the floor, shadowed in the windows
Concrete surroundings open like curtains in a room
Apartments spread apart to welcome company
Steel beams grow to towers touched by silent sides
Small objects come in from outer space to settle
Downtown is a lovely place for moons to gather
As visitors tour on the metropolis boulevard for stars
It is hard to imagine how massive objects fit in the city
With all that traffic, gravity and laws of physics
It all works out on the cosmic stage completely strange
After all, a downtown complex is built to handle change
There is nothing more complex than visitors from space
Round and solid as the citizens who parade as bravely
In the middle of downtown in the middle of chaos squared
Where mountains are seen stretched just out of reach
Moons roll along the streets to meet the bent of realms
Lost in their dreams as they have no footing in this reality
And no feet to stand on, on the thoroughfare out there
Where downtown is everywhere
