She has eyes disability blue
A German dog and strict curfew
And if one man's cage is another man's stage
Then she's turned the script to another page
And she doesn't really give a damn
What you have to say

She makes a call on her friend's cell phone
The operator answers and says "You're not alone"
And if one man's ceiling is another's dance floor
Then she'll be the one running to the sea shore
Trying to tell the seagulls
This is home

And if one man's cage is another man's stage
Then she'll be the one wiser than her age
Trying to get the message to your ear

    General CommentSays E of this song:

    "During the 1997 Lollapalooza tour Perry Farrell was always riding around on golf carts surrounded by beautiful exotic dancers. I was unwittingly dressing like a Nation of Islam member in bow tie and jacket and there were death threats on Snoop Dogg so the Nation were there protecting him, which made me feel funny, like they might think I was fucking with them by dressing like them. An odd coincidence. Anyway, one day I saw Perry drive by with a dancer dressed as a bird, making a call on her cell phone and an EELS B-side was born."
