"Token Trapped Woman" as written by and Peter Roberts....
I have to sell my soul to you
And that's just to pay for its renewal

How long have you been at it
How many fingers am I holding up
I know I was away for a while
But now I'm back does it make any difference
This woman's in a state
Better tie her up
Put her on my plate
And I'll make her smile again
That's the point
Nobody ever asked you how you feel

You are trapped
Don't waste your energy
You are trapped
Don't waste your energy

Cracked up woman
On the run
See it weighs me down
Like tar in your lung
You are dropped don't waste your energy
Waste your energy

You said that night that we might run away
And yes we'll end up in some better place
And once we'd gone there'd be no coming back

Why should you beg forgiveness, from us
For the pleasure you give us
You're just trapped
Don't waste your energy

You said that night that we might run away
And yes we'll end up in some better place
And once we'd gone there'd be no coming back

    General CommentI think I'll have to churn over what this song means. But my first impression was there is some form of abuse going on - "You are trapped, don't waste your energy" and even more obviously, "Why should you beg forgiveness, from us - for the pleasure you give us". And I can't get my head around "You said that night that we might run away....etc" ... It's probably a relationship gone wrong. Where the girl wronged the guy somehow... I really like this song, just not too sure what it means

    General CommentI thought it was about a woman that is trapped in a relationship, and the song is from another man that she is in love with.. However, I thought the line was "why should you beg forgiveness for the pleasures you give up."

    I don't have the liner notes, so I bet this is correct... But I guess I have to churn, as well :)
