Lookin' back at the crash site
I don't see me by the roadside
Well this heart is on wheels tonight
Straight through the ghettos and without lights
Now every heart has a blind side
Where it learns how to improvise
Well this place is a whorehouse tonight
Cheaper lovers make expensive wives

But all of these horses
That you chase around
In the end they are the ones
That always bring you down
This invisible city
Where no one sees nothing
We're touching faces in the dark
Feelin' pretty is so hard

Now all of these voices
And all of these noises
With all their illusions of choices
They've come to my door
With one dozen roses
The imitation of good faith
Is how you stumble upon hate
It may have been the first of mistakes
When we held on too loosely
Then opened the gates

But all of these horses
That you chase around
In the end they are the ones
That always bring you down
This invisible city
Where no one sees nothing
We're touching faces in the dark
Feelin' pretty is so hard

Now I try not to tell lies
But there's pressures from inside
So I've learned how to compromise
Good people for alibis

But all of these horses
That you chase around
In the end they are the ones
That always bring you down
This invisible city
Where no one sees nothing
We're touching faces in the dark
Feelin' pretty is so hard

    General CommentI think the first verse is about a guy's experience with the women that he's met. every time another relationship fails he goes into a trance where he ignores the world around him to move on. and when he looks at the girls around him he can only imagine that putting time into a relationship with them could only yield the same result. But i think the lyrics leave it pretty open so that both men and women can relate to it like "They've come to my door, With one dozen roses...etc" means that people put on a pretty face and once you crack that mask you always find an ugly person under it that you end up hating but you still have a hard time getting over it.
