Your back's against the wall, there's no one home to call//You're forgetting who you are, you can't stop crying
Take a little walk to the edge of town//Go across the tracks where the viaduct looms, like a bird of doom
Look inside, look inside your tiny mind, now look a bit harder//Cause we're so uninspired, so sick and tired of all the hatred you harbor
And I don't want you and I don't need you//Don't bother to resist, or I'll beat you//It's not your fault that you're always wrong, the weak ones are there to justify the strong
Drink up baby doll, are you in or are you out?//Leave your things behind, 'cause it's all going off without you
Time is never time at all, you can never ever leave without leaving a piece of youth//And our lives are forever changed, we will never be the same
Oh well I woke up tonight and said I, I'm gonna make somebody love me//I'm gonna make somebody love me
You can look, but you can't touch, I don't think I like you much//Heaven knows what a girl can do, heaven knows what you've got to prove
Strange infatuation seems to grace the evening tide//I'll take it by your side
I'm feeling rough, I'm feeling raw, I'm in the prime of my life//Let's make some music, make some money, find some models for wives
See Caroline, all the guys would say she's mighty fine//But mighty fine only got you somewhere half the time
I can't help my feelings, I'll go out of my mind//These players come to get me 'cause they'd like my behind
So let the people talk, it's Monday morning walk//Right past the fabulous mess we're in//It's gonna be a beautiful day
You sit there in your heartache, waiting on some beautiful boy to//To save you from your old ways
You think that we connect, that the chemistry's correct//Your words walk right through my ears, presuming I like what I hear
I need a gun to keep myself from harm//The poor people are burning in the sun//But they ain't got a chance, they ain't got a chance
Never win first place, I don't support the team//I can't take direction and my socks are never clean
Oh girl we are the same, we are young and lost and so afraid//There's no cure for the pain, no shelter from the rain
Why don't you ask the kids at Tiananmen Square?//Was fashion the reason why they were there?
The record goes from blue to gold, so thank you for all your help//I know you want to jump around, but try to contain yourself
Sail away where no ball and chain can keep us from the roarin' waves//Together undivided but forever we'll be free
I picked you out of a crowd and talked to you//Said I liked your shoes//You said thanks, can I follow you?
You have loved, you were not alone//You have braved the weather//When the storm cut you to the bone, there was always shelter
She shines in a world full of ugliness//She matters when everything is meaningless
Warm yourself by the fire, son, and the morning will come soon//I’ll tell you stories of a better time in a place that we once knew
Tonight out on the streets I'm gonna follow you//Tell you all about a scene that you would kill for
Crash and burn, all the stars explode tonight//How'd you get so desperate? How'd you stay alive?
Big on the underground, what's the point of knocking me down?//Everybody knows I'm already good on the ground
The truth will ever hide, even though I tried//They tried to take my pride, but they only took my father from me
Bat your eyes girl, be otherworldly//count your blessings, seduce a stranger// What's so wrong with being happy?//Kudos to those who see through sickness
Come ride with me through the veins of history//I'll show you how God falls asleep on the job
What if I wanted to break, laugh it all off in your face//What would you do?
Now I'm of consenting age to be forgetting you in a cabaret//Somewhere downtown where a burlesque queen may even ask my name
I'll lay me down tonight//Much further down//Swim in the calm tonight//This art does drown
Hear the sound of the falling rain, coming down like an Armageddon flame//The shame, the ones who died without a name
Do I attract you? Do I repulse you with my queasy smile?//Am I too dirty? Am I too flirty? Do I like what you like?
If you wanna make the move then you better come in//It's just the ability to reason that wears so thin
I'm a fountain of blood in the shape of a girl//You're the bird on the brim, hypnotised by the Whirl
Happiness hit her like a train on a track//Coming towards her, stuck still, no turning back
Baby, seasons change but people don't, and I'll always be waiting in the back room//I'm boring but overcompensate with headlines and flash, flash, flash photography
