sleater-kinney - was it a lie?

sleater-kinney - was it a lie? tab The yard was cold and dark the tracks were clearly marked But she was tired/ she didn't see She was just out alone She wasn't going home she was going somewhere far away The train was moving through as we know the world has to do Everyone will say it was her fault Somewhere a camera is placed inside this awful place The accident is about to start Was it a lie? Did it fill you head Did it entertain? Will you feel alive at the end of it? When the collision came she died right away her body flung almost sixty feet and as she split in two was she coming straight for you and do you have a camera for a face? was she your TV show Was she your video A woman's pain never private, always seen I want to close my eyes I want to cut the wires I want a day not made for you to see When you play it back to me it feels more like a parody And that's all I will ever be It's all I will ever be I really don't care about it I don't care if it's cold I really want to be the prettiest wreck you've seen (You broadcast it in 50 states looped her death on the internet and a woman's life got cheaper that day a woman's life got cheaper that day)
