Verse 1 (with Verse Riff):

   "She nursed him there overnight
   Wasn't so sure she wanted him to stay
   What to say, what to say
   Soon she was down, soon he was low
   At a quarter past, holy no
   She had to turn around"

Chorus 1:

Verse 2 (with Verse Riff):

   "And to this day she's glided on
   Always home but so far away
   Like a word misplaced, nothing said, what a waste
   When she had contact with the conflict
   There was meaning but she sold him to the state
   She had to turn around"


Chorus 2:

   "When she couldn't hold, she folded
   A dissident is here
   Escape is never the safest path
   A dissident, a dissident is here"

   Repeat 4 times:
