Alternate Reality: The City Intro lyrics

The early morning turns into early day
The sunset comes they take the colors way
Where you are
Alternate reality

A bit like home yet unmistakably new
A morning rain then evening stars come and view
What is your
Alternate reality

You walk around each corner hoping to see
A way to get back home a way to break free
And to leave
Alternate reality
This is your
Alternate reality
