lyrics

Four quarters in the slot
A swivel of the chair
Stare directly at the dot
Hold steady as a rock
Till the flashes disappear and the red light switches off.

Just chemicals on paper
Four lonely images emerging out of vapor
Who knows where they’ve been or where they’ll take her
But her backpacks in the car and she is ready to depart

The sky is open wide
In the evening shadows are so difficult to hide
She opens up the door and steps outside
And at the airport terminal she turns to say goodbye

Does anybody love you? Does any one even care about you?
And if they did would you know it? Would you dare Would you dare
to even let some body show it?

Teaching English is the past tense
At a call center station east of Bangalore
She saves up each and every last cent
To teach the future perfect when she gets to Singapore

A day spent in the market
She tries a satin jacket, finds a necklace in the pocket
A photo in a locket
The eyes stare back at her and she can almost here it talk

Does anybody love you? Does any one even care about you?
And if they did would you know it? Would you dare Would you dare
to even let some body show it?

My heart is full of chemicals
Each thought at night so bright ignites faint vestiges of light
Burns image after image on my bones
On my bone. On my bones.
On my bone. On my bones.
On my bones sa bones sa bone sa bone

If she stays far away. All that I have that remains
Is a strip of paper marred with stains
And nothing. Not nothing that can explain
