She lives the glamour days
The Euro-fashion phase
So set another trap some other way
'Cause she's not biting
And oh no she's getting wasted again
Imagine that
Hooked on saving face
What are you thinking
What are you doing here


You pretend you're safe inside,
but I know what no one knows
Where's the same, undefined by you
As you're living thru my eyes
Always living thru my eyes
She's taking over the game,
and always running away
They've tried to tug her in so many ways
Still she's inviting
And oh no she's playing bastard again,
imagine that
Hooked on pointing fingers
Are you breathing
What are you doing here


'Cause it's a union of androgyny
That lingers like the plague
Know it's still a question of gender
Imagine she's pretending that
she's hooked on saving face
What were you thinking
What are you doing here

chorus out

    General CommentI think is about a model girl in the fashion world. They are allways thinking in her image and everyone's opinion and they get really worried if they aren't "in" anymore.

    General CommentYes that makes sense but what about the part when jay says

    but I know what no one knows
    Were the same, undefined by you
    As you're living through my eyes

    I mean so what is he saying that he is like her.. but she doesn't realize it ? Im not really sure i mean every other part of this song points to what Dead has said but this one.. Confuses me anyone have any ideas?!

    My InterpretationSo it just hit me. "You know its still a question of gender."
    I think Jay is talking about his experience with a transgender escort. "The glamour days, the euro fashion phase. She getting wasted again, imagine that" Talking about the lifestyle that accompanies escorts, much like a model. "But I know what no one knows. We're the same, undefined by you" they're both men, but not by the escorts definition.
    "It's a union of androgyny" Jay feels he is being duped after discovering her truths "what were you thinking? What are you doing here?"
    I'm sticking to this one
