She nursed him there  ooh  over a night
I wasn't so sure she wanted him to stay
What to say, what to say
But soon she was down  soon he was low
At a quarter past, a holy no,
She had to turn around

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

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

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

She gave him away when she couldn't hold, no, she folded,
A dissident is here
Escape is never, the safest path
Oh, a dissident, a dissident is here
Couldn't hold on, she couldn't hold, no, she folded,
A dissident is here
Escape is never the safest place
A dissident is here
