you couldn’t know what it feels like
to brush your heart in a crowded subway car with the scars on my thighs.
i got the sound of the sun in my system.
you think you got a solution for silence and a solution for distance.
with my heart that i bury fifty miles from my body
with my heart that i bury right across the border
with my heart that i carry in a shoebox in a cage
with my heart kicking your ribs again and again and again.

if this is what they call the essence how come we’re all so fucking restless? watch us both rattle our chains in the sunset.
i saw the ads on television trying to sell competition as romance.
with my heart that i bury fifty miles from my body
with my heart that i bury right across the border
with my heart that i carry in a shoebox in a cage
with my heart kicking your ribs again and again and again.

and they say that we are lucky, we have love in our pockets.
they say i should keep your heart, it might be a good start.
they say i’ll know my place. take that spoon,
have a taste of the wonderful life.
they say that we are lucky, we have love in our pockets
and we let it unfold, push hips and envelopes
and we know this ain’t the movies so come on come on let’s go go go go go go go.

if this is a war it’s us against them all.
if this is a trick they already got us by our necks.
if this is a stickup we got the crazy and the wicked.
if this is a call to arms that’s what we’re here for.

and they say that we are lucky, we have love in our pockets.
they say i should keep your heart, it might be a good start.
they say i’ll know my place. take that spoon,
have a taste of the wonderful life.
they say that we are lucky, we have love in our pockets
and we let it unfold, push hips and envelopes
and we know this ain’t the movies so come on come on let’s go go go go go go go.
