You walk down seeing stars
Like you're just coming off of the ice
You're lit by the passing cars
The third time they passed you tonight

And you're happy to be this scared
And you're thrilled to move this fast
And you leave the curb in mid air
And your foot comes down with a crash

They all want to put you at ease
They all want to pay you in cash
They're happy when you're down on your knees
You're finally at the critical mass

But you look so out of place
Underneath flourescent lights
Like you're visible from outer space
Like a brand new sattelite

They all want to put you at ease
They all want to pay you in cash
They're happy when you're down on your knees
You're finally at the critical mass

You never thought he'd ever believe
You'd go around and call him trash
And now you know he'll never be
You're finally at the critical mass

Yeah

But you were born under shattered stars
And they just let you out on the ice
You were made out of seperate parts
And they only came together tonight

They all want to put you at ease
They all want to pay you in cash
They're happy when you're down on your knees
You're finally at the critical mass

You never thought he'd ever believe
You'd go around and call him trash
And now you know he'll never be
You're finally at the critical mass

    General CommentThanks to Niiru and the SweetAddy message board for lyric help.

    To me the song seems to be about a troubled girl who's been pimped into prostitution / working at a strip club (underneath flourescent lights)
