lyrics

She's dancing in the subway
Get behind me it's a trick
She's fighting time
Get behind me it's a trick
This language is useless
She told me what I'm thinking is not really that I think
Look at your hands she said
Look at them go

She's got a dollar in her palm
For the poem in the street
Scissors around her neck
A crucifix where her T-shirt and her heart meet
Scars on her knees
From praying to the city
She sliced off her pockets
So she'll never get greedy
Can we see you?
Can we see?

She held her page to the sky
With cut out words and images
She tore it to shreds saying
Burn the prisons down
Freedom can be achieved in a momentary switch from state to another caused by a simple decision like a step from here to there and she pointed to a drain cover
She's an angel in the streetlight
She's an angel in the streetlight
Oh, oh, oh
Rock'n'roll queen
Get behind me it's a trick
Rock'n'roll queen
Get behind me it's a trick
This language is useless

Look at your hands, she said
Look at them go
Don't look at me, look at your hands instead
Look at them go
Look at your hands, she said
Look at them go

And I left her
Dancing in the subway

Don't look at me
Look at your hands, she said
Look at them go
