The City Between Heaven and Hell

There is a city midway

Between heaven and hell

It welcomes all with open arms

Pretty women and tasty ale

I spent many a year in its arms

They come from far and wide

Misfits, escapees and those in search of easier times

And they gather

With foamy beer and staring smiles

No Sea will you find for many miles

The mountains equally distant

The river cuts this valley of despair

The victorian houses stand monument

To better times

Like silent tombstones

An air like death descends

And smothers inhabitants choking

Never a smile shall you see

In Brno, pretty prison she is

The pretty sirens sing

And laugh with glee

They have you trapped you see

Escape is futile

For us foreigners in exile there
