Lisa knows a girl who's been abused
It changed her philosophy in '82
She's always looking for a fight
She keeps the neighbours up all night

I go to her when I'm feeling slack
The girl's using me as a punching bag
I think that I could help her out
But the girl's got a lot to be mad about

And in the first moment of her waking up
She knows she's losing it, yeah, she's losing it
When the first cup of coffee tastes like washing up
She knows she's losing it, yeah, she's losing
Yeah, she's losing it

Lisa met Chelsea at the knocking school
Chelsea didn't feel like following the rules
So they left the place for another school
Where the boys go with boys and the girls with girls

Chelsea was the one who's been abused
It changed her philosophy in '82
She says, "Inch for inch and pound for pound
Who needs boys when there's Lisa around?"

And in the first moment of her waking up
She knows she's losing it, yeah, she's losing it
When the first cup of coffee tastes like washing up
She knows she's losing it, yeah, she's losing it
She goes to the mirror to put on her stuff
She knows she's losing it, oh yeah, she's losing it
When she doesn't speak to anyone until four o'clock
She knows she's losing it, yeah, she's losing it
Oh yeah, she's losing it

    General CommentSometimes I think this song is about lesbian separatism, like having lesbian relationships for political reasons (which I think is a terrible idea). Lisa decides to be with Chelsea because it seems like making such a big change to her life will be really daring and make her happier, but it doesn't really work. I think "she's losing it" means either she's realizing that she can't really be attracted to a woman, or she can't have the anger at society that Chelsea has.
