Casey joins the hollow sound of silent people walkin'
Down the stairway to the subway in the shadows down below
Following their footsteps through the neon darkened coridors
Of silent desperation, never speakin' to a soul

The poison air he's breathin' has the dirty smell of dyin'
'Cause it's never seen the sunshine and it's never felt the rain
But Casey minds the arrows and ignores the fatal echoes
Of the clickin' of the turnstile and the rattle of his chains

"Oh", she said "Casey it's been so long since I've seen you"
"Here" she said, "Just a kiss to make a body smile"
"See" she said, "I've put on new stockings just to please you"
"Lord" she said, "Casey can you only stay awhile"
