Living in any major city is tough; the city can be alienating, hostile, and just downright dangerous--a test of self-sustainability. This synthy dance track by the Pet Shop Boys begrudges the fact and moves the highly-relatable themes more specifically to the duo's hometown, i.e. London. The song presents a distinct dichotomy between the weak and the strong (the antonymous 'East End Boys' and 'West End Girls'): "You've got a heart of glass or a heart of stone. Just you wait 'til I get you home. We've got no future, we've got no past. Here today, built to last."
