She held up her hands
to fend from the fight
he pushed her away 
to escape from the bitethey screamed something awful
uncivilized Each of them hurting
   Deep down inside
no room for words
both beaten - they cryThe child is failing
 His way out of life
the principal's calling
the Police roll on by

  'Everything's good here,
        Everything's fine'
They, all three, lie
      And they lie through
      Their days

Somehow, surviving
      Their way through the craze
then tumbles down
this stuff built of straw
And none can forget
   All that they saw Ah Ah Ah Ah
Welcome Welcome

   Take up a chair  A world of arias

  To show you we care

              Ah Ah Ah Ah

         Tenderhearts listen

          You're bruised


          You're scarred

but you have to remember

this is not who you are

no one the master, none the slave

all live with dignity, none live depraved

beckon the princess, the pilot, the king

let drift through ballerina

to take away shame

     Care is our arrow

     Your hurt selves our aim


good-day pretty please

no more of this begging

for life on your knees
