Rock City is the third song on the album Silent So Long by Emigrate.

Background

  • The song features the singer Lemmy Kilmister.
  • The song started out as an acoustic song. When Richard played it to the band, the drummer doubled the tempo and the band started working on the song.[2]
  • In a track-by-track video series, Richard commented this about the song:[3]

Computers can have their limitations.

This song really came to life in the rehearsal room when the band started to jam. From there, all the pieces came together organically.

There's nothing like the chaos of human touch.

Lyrics

Album version

Like you I've never seen pretty lights
Let's make the most - rock city night
Can't be forever true
But there's still some things that we can do
In you I really wanna be tonight
Please let me do - rock city night
Take what you want from me
'Cause I'm all about the fantasy

I'll wait for you downtown
'Til you come around
Be my secret lover

Are we alone?
Never can I touch your secrets
Just you and me
Are we alone?

God's cool, he lets me do what I like
You're old enough - rock city night
Might take your dignity
But you'll never want it back from me
Let's make a memory of a night
When we are truly free
There's nothing I can't be
Let me solve your mystery

I'll wait for you downtown
'Til you come around
Be my secret lover

Are we alone?
Never can I touch your secrets
Just you and me
Are we alone?

Are we alone?
Let me breathe in all your secrets
On dirty knees
I'll bring you home

In the Heimat, baby

Are we alone?
Never can I touch your secrets
Just you and me
Are we alone?

(Are we alone?)
Are we alone?
Let me breathe in all your secrets
On dirty knees
I'll bring you home

(Are we alone?)
Are we alone? (Are we alone?)
Never can I touch your secrets
Just you and me
Are we alone?

(Are we alone?)
Are we alone? (Are we alone?)
Hide behind your dirty secrets
Can't you see?
We aren't alone

Hey
