1. Shake

From the recording Born To Howl


"Great God Almighty"I heard a woman cry"Do you think I'm made of iron?How dare you pass me by?I've seen your kind beforeYou seem so self-assuredWhat are you doing walking on thewild sideLooking so demure?"And then she started swayingShe said, "I've disconnected fromthe wholeCan't you hear? The band is playingShake, Rattle and Roll"The sidewalk is her ballroomHer dress a tattered greyPeople stop and whisper"I wonder how she got that way"She said, "I like to let my hair downLet it fall and let it flowDance to all the old songsI remember long ago"I tried to break it gentlyI said, "No one hears your song"She said, "What makes you so sureyou've got it rightAnd I've got it wrong?You can keep your comforts of homeThey mean nothing to meI prefer the wreckageOf a life that used to be"
