"Fall Down"
(written by Kristin Hersh)

I picked up this lady in a store
She dropped her stuff
And tripped on it, so I picked her up
I said, everybody falls down
Once you meet the man you want
You'll know 'cause you see red
Like making honey 'til he stings you in the head
Fall down
Fall down
Kate collected postcards when she felt too alone
In case no friends of hers could get her on the phone
Fall down
Fall down
Her husband was in line behind her
Not everybody falls down
You're so old, I said, what happened?
If you eat her lipstick you consume her jealous rage
They get you in the mouth, those girls
Fall down
Fall down
Juan collected things in cans, he felt he wasn't safe
See, his girlfriend took some when she went away
Fall down
Fall down
Nothing ever happens here, I said
I just wait
I showed this guy my pictures
He said they didn't breathe
I said I painted them that way
Kind of hanging on his sleeve
Fall down
Fall down
I showed this girl my stitches
She said she had some too
She said she thinks she'll start a rock band too
Fall down
Fall down 
Fall down now
I hope you fall so fast and hard that you get me...

Don't worry, dance in the road.
