  • Hard to choose, to choose between them
    Tramps on a night out, out of season
    Bare legs and arms at the taxi stand
    Shoes in hand, cold kerb to freeze on

    What desperation, what souls possessed
    With lonely demons are put to test?
    Why should we worry, why should we care
    That warrior horsemen shame, defile them?
    Why tip the cabbie, plus his fare?

    So send them home to stumble in
    And toss their knickers in the bin
    Repentance looms then melts away
    Mocked by dark unearthly silence
    Replaced by incubus at play

    Bad sisters stare, graffiti walls
    Stare in return when weekend calls
    The empty bragging, the empty lives
    In anguish echo through empty malls

    What desperation, what souls possessed
    With lonely demons are put to test?
    Why should we worry, why should we care
    That warrior horsemen shame, defile them?
    The six-gun notches say it all

    It was hard to choose, to choose between them
    Tramps on a night out, out of season
    Out of body and out of mind
    Out of dark and into reason

    Get them home to stumble in
    And toss their knickers in the bin
    Demons loom then melt away
    "Enough!" disrupts the earthly silence
    Guilty Eros had his day
    Hands two sad souls to Agáp? Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
