TOP 10 SKYSCRAPERS TO SEE BEFORE YOU DIE

20 Jul

 

Check out this post from my original blog:

MINE IS BIGGER THAN YOURS: THE RISE AND RISE OF THE SKYSCRAPER

NO MAN’S LAND BY BILLY JOEL

20 Jul

 

I’ve seen those big machines come rolling through the quiet pines

Blue suits and bankers with their Volvos and their valentines

Give us this day our daily discount outlet merchandise

Raise up a multiplex and we will make a sacrifice

Now we’re gonna get the big business

Now we’re gonna get the real thing

Everybody’s all excited about it

 

Who remembers when it all began

Out here in no man’s land

Before they passed the master plan

Out here in no man’s land

Low supply and high demand

Here in no man’s land

 

There ain’t much work out here in our consumer power base

No major industry, just miles and miles of parking space

This morning’s paper says our neighbor’s in a cocaine bust

Lots more to read about Lolita and suburban lust

Now we’re gonna get the whole story

Now we’re gonna be in prime time

Everybody’s all excited about it

 

Who remembers when it all began

Out here in no man’s land

We’ve just begun to understand

Out here in no man’s land

Low supply and high demand

Here in no man’s land

 

I see these children with their boredom and their vacant stares

God help us all if we’re to blame for their unanswered prayers

They roll the sidewalks up at night, this place goes underground

Thanks to the condo kings there’s cable now in Zombietown

Now we’re gonna get the closed circuit

Now we’re gonna get the Top 40

Now we’re gonna get the sports franchise

Now we’re gonna get the major attractions

 

Who remembers when it all began

Out here in no man’s land

Before the whole world was in our hands

Out here in no man’s land

Before the banners and the marching bands

Out here in no man’s land

Low supply and high demand

Here in no man’s land
