please visit - Woman needs a man
run as fast as she can.
Take the stairs two by two
grabs her clothes and anything that glows.

as she looks out from the edge
There trading freedom for the chains
nothing changes - stays the same.

Young man with no plan
does whatever he can
defending things that he can't see
picks up his coat and wipes his blooded nose.

and he stands out on the edge
There trading freedom for the chains
nothing changes - stays the same.

The ship of common sense has sailed
get your perspectives in the mail
but remember when it all comes crashing down
the dice were loaded at the start
the game was rigged, the cards were marked.

- Instrumental -

Postman with no mail
tells himself he's failed
and staggers 'round the cardboard streets
alone at night as everybody sleeps

And as he looks down on the edge
there trading freedom for the chains
nothing changes - stays the same.

The ship of common sense has sailed
get your perspectives in the mail
but remember when it all comes crashing down
They traded freedom for the chains
nothing changes - stays the same.

Woman with young man
living her life's plan
cross each other in the hall
work their shifts, and hardly talk at all.

And they both lived on the edge
trading freedom for the chains
nothing changes - stays the same.
