'A Different Class', 'The Mortgaged Heart',.
The man from Sparks, the Crystal Park.
We're running out of sane excuses now
We're running out with snow white tails.

Why don't you stay here?
Why don't you just stay?
It's hell to see you slope off that way.

The nowhere stores, the get-out clause.
The hand in paw, the coral dawn.
We're running out of sane excuses now
We're running out with snow white tails.

Why don't you stay here?
Why don't you just stay?
It's hell to see you slope off that way.
As he was stretched out in your arms -
You'd rather kill than cause him harm.
There were only hours before the theft -
Only hours before he left.

[You're good at acting strong.
So deceptive and so wrong.
Now nothing else will turn you on.
Now the rabbit kids have won.]

It's building up...

    General CommentI think the song is about a break up, the protagonist being on the receiving end.

    In the first verse the narrator seems to be talking about things she and her partner shared, incidentally all having cultural references to outsiders.

    The chorus is the protagonist's pleas for her partner to stay with her, who is obviously reluctant.

    The second verse, things seem to have hit a rocky patch, visiting the same old high street shops, her partner possibly guilty (needing a "get out clause") so he holds her hand and buys her flowers ("coral dawn")

    The second chorus possible explains things - the protagonist has seen the object of her affection with someone else, who is dedicated to him. This is only "hours before the theft" - she steals him off him and he leaves her.

    The last verse is interspersed with a male vocal (possibly the protagonist's partner?) assessing her position, stating that she looks tough but she's pretty fragile underneath now that her beau has gone off with someone else.

    I've no idea why the triumphant couple are referred to as Rabbit Kids, anyone else?
