Say you wanna get in
And then you wanna get out
When you get the money
To buy yourself a castle
How will you wear your leisure
Zipper back and front
On the fence together
Weekends in leather

Flip to the right
Slip back to the left
For handshakes at the ranch
Small talk at the crossroads
Rubbing up to the ladder
Sucking on every rung
Coming up forever and hanging on

That's entertainment
Cameras roll
Can you face the pavement
For a happy dog and pony show
Everybody loves you baby
Do you miss me
I miss you

Buy this car to drive to work
Drive to work to pay for this car

You say you wanna get in,
and you wanna get out.
But you won't.
Cause it's a trap.

    General CommentI think that the entire CD is about a girl who seems to get the worst out of life.

    This song is describing this girl's prostitution job. She wants to get in to make some money, but wants to get out because it's not a real life. Unfortunately, she has no chance to get out because she always needs more money to sustain herself, and so she is caught in the trap of a dead-end job.
