  • Lyrics: there’s been a mistake?an awful mistake? I must have missed my stop, she says?? She cries like a fallen angel?She spins like a broken top? ?And it’s not alright?? She tried filling her tires with helium to get it off the ground? And mounting a sail up on the roof and letting the wind push her around? And the invisible paint made it harder to find when she had to make a getaway? And the rocket boosters increased her speed, but they knew where she was by the sound that she made?? And everyone here speaks a different language? The consonants are sharper and the vowels are too hard? And she can’t run as fast and as free as she remembers? And after all of these years, she still lets down her guard?? And the assholes get her down?? You might think she’s crazy? But she might be right?When she says maybe all of us are too accustomed to this fight?? And all my well-worn wisdom and a dollar-twenty five? Will barely buy me coffee and yet I’m trying to save her life? It’s not alright??(there’s been a mistake…)?
