lyrics

i watched them both grow side by side
witnessed every move, captured the progress

the blooming first steps of a city
the company town and worker squats

all-seeing eye somewhere in time
from daily grind to milestones

bridging the gaps from future to past
citizens once settlers and pioneers

here's a tribute to the life and times
a tangible proof through lens and film

feel the pulse of two cities
beating in sync, becoming one

feel the pulse, twin cities
building up as one

pictures worth a thousand words
of people with stories to tell

pictures worth a thousand stories
of people with lives to be told

i watched them both grow side by side
witnessed every move, captured the progress

the blooming first steps of a city
the company town and worker squats

so came the day i passed it on
this family tree

revealed and stopped, fixed in time
captured the memories
all the moments gone

citizen
