everywhere she looks
she looks through the corner of her eye
every time she left
she never turned to say goodbye
swaying in the corner of the bar room
blown by the music
she looked like a spiderweb
and picking orchids from her teeth then and a man

fresh from the war
he complements her bedroom decor
she crawled in there like water
she drowned in there on the floor
she left him gasping for air
and crying for more.
and the morning sun was embarrassed to find them
lying together
neither could remember the other's name
he stepped out of her mind
and into the hall
and they never saw each other again.
whoa...
and someone gave her a manual of love in the world today
because there are no pages in that book there is no proper way
it's so easy for those with the unflinching eye
to find some unfulfilled human being to fry
she is looking for the kisses that she never got at home
her lips are puckered and she is walking alone
and if she ends up with some dirty hot disease
its a small price she pays for the need to be pleased.
and there are too few who open both eyes
we sit back in our easy chairs and try to sympathize
but whether from the point of a needle
or the edge of her bed
our heroine like too many others now is dead
and lisa is lucky, she ended up with a baby boy
she's 16 years old, doesn't know her body's not a toy
joel is hungry, he is doing the town
andrea is on the rebound.
walk to the corner and run from what you find
we have to abort our cannibalistic state of mind.
everywhere she looked
she looked through the corner of her eye
and every time she left she never turned to say goodbye
swaying in the corner of the bar room
blown by the music
she looked like a spiderweb.

fresh from the war
he complements her bedroom decor
she didn't know this time she was the victim
he had nothing to lose anymore...

    General Commentthis is such a sad song. just sit there right now and read the lyrics. if it doesnt shock you... stay there and read it again. "she is looking for the kisses that she never got at home/her lips are puckered and she is walking alone/and if she ends up with some dirty hot disease/its a small price she pays for the need to be pleased" my god. AIDS is no walk in the park, everyone should know that. it's amazing that Ani is saying that this girl would rather have 15mins of being "pleased" being with someone, making love risking the rest of her life cause its just a small price to pay, and that time was worth it all? no way. "walk to the corner and run from what you find" run away from what is right in front of you, because you dont want to have to deal with it. everyone has dont it. different situations but too many times people turn a blind eye to things around them "we have to abort our cannibalistic state of mind." why are we eating people alive? thats what cannibals do, so many people tear each other apart not only by their actions... but also by the things that were never done and/or never said. "and every time she left she never turned to say goodbye" no one cared. this song REALLY bothers me. it's a good view on how the majority of the world is. yes, there are those who have good souls, but just think of the millions who are just terrible. yuck. i'm sorry if this doesnt make much sense, it's just me ranting.

    General CommentYour both right. This song is terribly sad. I had a hard time making out the lyrics, 'cause the version I have on my computer is a bad one, but looking at the lyrics...It just sends chills down my spine, and all through me. It's awfully sad, what people do to each other, with out even noticing. It just makes me want to cry.
