Review just in:

The unexpected funereal start soon accelerates into rock fervour with a great pace. Your quirky accent suits the style of the song and sounds contemporary. There's also lots of vocal texture: soft and smooth (0.58s), hard and gritty (1m 23s) which adds interest. I like the part of the song "I know the dreamers are screaming" and also the abrupt ending, like a crash; sudden, final.

It's a common theme; running away to the city. There's a definite lure; believing anything could happen, which excites, but, yes, it's often fool's gold. In the song you didn't stay long...

lyrics

Broken City

Hide it away, it's not looking too pretty
Running away I want to head for the city
And if there's something I can't find
If it sends me out of my mind
Then I'll know time after time
You won't take any pity

I know the dreamers are screaming
And I know the screamers are dreaming
But you show nothing you're hiding
Cos I know you're always offsiding

Hide it away, it's not looking too pretty
Running away I'm gonna head to the city, the city
And if there's something I can't find
Well, if it sends me out of my mind
Then I know time after time
You won't take any pity

Time after time I head for the city
No reason or rhyme I head for the city
Way down the line I'm lost in the city
Well, I'm wasting my time I come back from the city, the city, the city

On and on and on and on anon
