Text písně Casey's Last Ride

Casey joins the hollow sound of silent people walking down 
 the stairway to the subway in the shadows down below 
 following their footsteps thru the neon darkened corridors 
 of silent desperation, never speaking to a soul 


 the poison air he's breathing has the dirty smell of dying 
 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 clicking 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" 


 Casey leaves the underground and stops inside the Golden Crown 
 for something wet to wipe away the chill that's on his bones 
 seeing his reflection in the lives of all the lonely men 
 who reach for anything they can to keep from going home 


 standing in the corner, Casey drinks his pint of bitter 
 never glancing in the mirror at the people passing by 
 then he stumbles as he's leaving and he wonders if the reason 
 is the beer that's in his belly or the tear that's in his eye 


 "Oh" she said, "I suppose you seldom think about me" 
 "Now" she said, "Now that you've a family of your own" 
 "Still" she said, "It's so blessed good to feel your body" 
 "Lord" she said, "Casey, it's a shame to be alone" 


 "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 a while" 
 "Lord" she said, "Casey it's a shame to be alone"
