Tonight
Strung out
Like a hazy web of lights
Until the dawn
And the rain
Is falling all along
The Reiperbahn
And you're gone

Ain't it strange
It seems like no one
Touches you these days
Must be unclean
And their words
Are haunting you
Like shadows veiled in storm
Neverending...

And she shimmers from the sky like a million golden opportunities
All scattered on the ground
and floating in the gutters of your memory
She's written on the overpass and her broken promise sleeps beside the factory
She's ugly in the dawn and her dress flies on the fence below the refinery
Refinery

In the air
Anonymous
And floating in your chair
You rewrite the story
What's your name?
And tell them who you are
And why you came
And they believe you...

Thinking back on nights
When you were just a broken doll
Behind the window
And you know
That no matter which way
You decide to go
You're never going back there...

And she shimmers from the sky like a million golden opportunities
All scattered on the ground and floating in the gutters of your memory
She's written on the overpass and her broken promise sleeps beside the factory
She's ugly in the dawn and her dress flies on the fence below the refinery
Refinery
