Another Is Waiting

It's a fake, it's a hoax, it's a nowhere road
where no one goes anywhere, anyhow
Well, you're following your heart rate down

She's a rose, she's a queen
but she's staring at a magazine
In the dark, on that path
where they doctor every photograph

Another is waiting, she isn't saying anything

If you care, if you like
well, I'm standing in the lantern light
with our weapons and our love
and I use them both to cover us

Another is waiting, she isn't saying anything

But I love you and I care
so you've got to get off that conveyor belt,
If I could, I would come right in and take you off myself

It's a fake, it's a con
The nature of the road you're on
lets me see your skeleton
well before your life is done

Another is waiting, she isn't saying anything
