ANKLE TATTOO
(David Francey)

I was at the bus station
That terminal place
With the rest of the desperate
Who've fallen from grace
Where eyes are averted
Where other eyes stare
Man talking to somebody
Nobody's there

And the terminal cases
They're impossibly young
And an old man is asking
If I've seen his son
And the cops do a walk through
Bottles slip into bags
And the beggar boy standing there
Hanging in rags

Refrain:
Nothing much changes just the passing of time
And the faces that wait here at the end of the line
Nothing much changes just the passing of time
And the faces that wait here at the end of the line.

And the eyes they get raised
To the blue of the screen
To the comin' and goin'
Of men and machines
And I think very likely
The departure of dreams
The arrival of the midnight hour

Instrumental

And the eyes they get raised
To the blue of the screen
To the comin' and goin'
Of men and machines
And I think very likely
The departure of dreams
The arrival of the midnight hour

There's a girl with her legs crossed
Got an ankle tattoo
It's an ugly reminder
In four shades of blue
And the bad boys, the rude boys,
They're into their game
And they keep their eyes open
For the halt and the lame

Repeat refrain.

Instrumental outro.
