  • The girl in the alley kneels with exhaustion
    She's guarded by the skinny guy who limps from some infection
    Behind a veil of bleached thin hair her eyes tell a story
    Like a photo of Berlin, December 1944
    She's looking for a handout, she's been high for several weeks now
    She's too far gone for whoring and the money just gave out

    And her heart still beats inside
    And the blood runs in her veins
    A remnant of life remains
    Her heart still beats inside

    The man finally comes to the door, I've seen him several times
    He always looks pissed off and his sunglasses stay on
    I think he got his biceps and tattoos while in prison
    And it doesnt seem to bother him when he says "go to hell"

    And his heart still beats inside
    The blood runs in his veins
    A remnant of life remains
    His heart still beats inside

    The thought it comes to my mind, to somehow intervene
    But it could bring me trouble, and what can I do anyway?
    It's hard to be effective when it happens so often
    To see a life unraveling, through drawn venetian blinds
    I'm sickened by compassion, I'm stifled by my limitations
    Anesthetic apathy, come take the pain away

    And my heart still beats inside
    The blood runs in my veins
    A remnant of life remains
    And my heart still beats inside

    Oh God, we need you here
    We're sinking fast and we dont care
    The evidence is all around me, on both sides of my door
    Our hearts beat
