 Through the window in the bathroom  Through the broken glass and bars
 Seeking comfort in the wallet  Where she placed eighty dollars 
When the last one has departed 
She can slide into the darkness 
And slowly down the river 
The current pulls her under 
And it bathes her in its splendor 
Is unmoved by her surrender 
And faint through the water 
The lights like brittle stars
 Someone called her name out
She no longer hears the cars
