Somebody wrote the book on you
Shut you out, caught you in the cover
and you stammer, you're talking slower
Somebody wrote about you over and over

I spent my nights in the subway cars
feeling my body getting lower and lower
I fought with fascist security guards
I felt the air get a little bit colder

And baby, you're the girl who throws
the stones that God won't lift
You put in the sting, you take out the piss
And I'll dissolve in you if you'll be my solvent
Because the world may turn, but baby, you're a revolver

Waste away in the heart and mind
Under contract: a sad discoverer
You woke up and they said you'd lied
in the eyes and the arms of others

So somebody writes a book for you
and falls in love again over and over
And you shiver, you turn your shoulder
somebody's making you older and older

This town,
well, it's a passion play
It's an ashtray
Oh it's a nightmare reflected on
in the sobering day
And that's never a reason to die
but it's always a reason to stay awake

And I'll dissolve in you, if you'll be my solvent
Because the world may turn, but baby, you're a revolver
Oh yeah, the world may turn, but baby, you're a revolver
Oh well, the world may turn, but baby, you're a revolver
