You Can Ride

Going down to the station.

Underground destination

down in a crowd of strangers' faces.

You can ride the night away

and never see the light of day.

You can go anywhere but you can't escape.

Take the train rolling heavy

through the veins of the city --

signs so plain, girls so pretty.

You can ride...

Broken glass on the pavement

and some flash advertisements,

whine and crash, and then silence.

You can ride...

Watch how you walk through this concrete jungle --

don't you get caught in some dirt cheap trouble

and don't get lost in that wild card shuffle.

You can ride...

Read the fine four-letter scrawl --

the handwriting on the wall,

the high price of love for sale.

You can ride...
