Testo In A Razor Town

In a razor town
You take whoever you think you can keep around
There's an echoed sound
That permeates the sidewalk where she shuffles 'round
It's a big machine
It used to be the avenue of changing dreams
She's a lonely thing
Sweeping up the glitter while she pulls the strings

Take a long last look
Before she turns to stone
What the last man took
And what was long, long gone

The way it used to be...
I wasn't there to see it working properly
Now it seems to me
Both of you are suffering
I've heard her say
That you're the only reason she's alive today
I just turned away
Thinking maybe she was right

So say your last goodbye
Make it short and sweet
There ain't no way for you to fly
With her hanging on your feet

Let her go out if she wants to
If she don't, go out yourself
Don't take sorry for an answer
Unless you really want what's left

Cause in a razor town
The only thing that matters tends to bring you down
There's no way around
But maybe you can barrel through
Cause a razor ain't no good for you
