Lyrics
Standing alone, in the middle of the city
Man looks around him
He hardly recognizes what he sees
Cause he' s a man from the past
Two thousand years ago
This was his home
Rivers used to run here
Birds used to fly around here
But now it is a different jungle
A concrete jungle

[Chorus:]
He' s a lonely man
In the middle of the city
Missing home so badly

Man' s own creation
Has become his worst enemy
Weapons of destruction
Have brought about
Human extinction...wo...ho
Two thousand years ago
This was his home
But now it is
A different jungle
A concrete jungle

[Chorus:]
He' s a lonely man
In the middle of the city
Missing home so badly
