    Lyrics

    Between the dead ring ash of extreme defense
    The lonely groups of company boys
    Snapping pictures of scrawny limbs and toothy grins
    These are children riding naked on their tourist pals
    While the hollows that pass for eyes swell from withdrawal
    And he lies on a mattress in a rat infested room
    Talking 'bout his family and the cold back home

    Between the dull cold eyes and the mind unstable
    Noone over here reads the papers pal
    'Tween the dull cold eyes and the mind unstable
    He's a clean trick and he's shopping for girls

    A small black someone jumps over the crazy white guard
    Cranking up the volume of a Michael Jackson song

    Between the dull cold eyes and the mind unstable
    Noone over here reads the papers pal
    'Tween the dull cold eyes and the mind unstable
    He's a clean trick and he's shopping for girls

    Where the frangipani scents the air
    She mouths a word that breaks his stare
    He grunts his reply in a garrulous croak
    "That's a mighty big word for a nine year old"

    Between the dull cold eyes and the mind unstable
    Noone over here reads the papers pal
    'Tween the dull cold eyes and the mind unstable
    He's a clean trick and he's shopping for girls

    Shopping for girls, shopping for girls

    You gaze down into her eyes for a million miles
    You wanna give her a name and a clean rag doll
